    Softly

    how does it feel to be loved so quietly
    in shadows
    in corners
    in heartaches
    completely
    hidden
    do you feel the arms that reach out and hold and hug you or the lips that kiss gently your cheek and
    do you hear the love in the voice that whispers good night my love good night peace and sweet sweet dreams

    Loser

    'tis done
    corners wept and swept
    clean
    there isn't anything left for a viewing
    finally prepared for a burning
    I guess I could say
    you win

    Breath

    the infinitesimal kiss
    unbalanced
    fell to shatter this soul
    into millions of pieces of dreams that escaped into the softness like morning air and when I breathed them in I knew twas you who helped me to live

    Moments

    there is peace
    in the smallest of moments
    there
    between the spill of an opalescent pearl
    of a tear and the drop
    as it shatters on the floor
    of my heart
    that moment
    in the catch of my breathe
    in between
    the touch of our lips

    Stillness

    We are still living in this freedom from storm
    Bathed in an wordless void
    Chilled aperitif of stillness in hand
    Toasting one another from afar
    Quietly raising a glass in silence to pursed lips
    We may never speak again

    Crazy in Absence
    (miss you in rain)


    I don't sleep on the side of the bed that still holds your shape
    I just put my hand there and stroke it
    the rainstorm we made love in haunts me
    never been so cold and so hot at the same time
    like ice sizzling on a flame
    like clouds
    like thunder and lightning
    your lips on my skin
    petrichor wafting
    raindrops steam from our body heat
    my heart beats so loudly in the quiet of your absence
    I startle myself awake stumble to answer the door to find no one is there knocking

    I may be going insane

    something about you
    calls me to come closer
    I catch myself mid step
    so many times
    I'm afraid I'll forget myself
    and put my arms around you
    put my head on your shoulder whisper
    how do you like your eggs

    Hills and Valley's

    Take all of me under the Christmas tree
    Raw
    pines lit up like ice cream
    sundaes
    Take the cold away with your lips
    Blue
    Bite limes and lick away salty tears pour that tequila between our skin pressing flowers between pages in memory of our first taste and last night
    Together we climb hills and mountains holding hands just to sled back down into the valleys

    My breath inside you
    the taste of your kiss
    Start the climb
    Once again like red ryder and rocket launchers
    We flew

    Gave it Up for Love

    you told me you're in love
    and so busy now
    cafes and concerts and late nights
    early mornings
    long drives and movie dates
    and there is a small smile when you say
    you gave up scribbling
    so busy after all
    and now you are living
    the poetry of real life
    again you give me that
    pity smile
    a parting gift
    as if to pat me on the head
    as you take your leave

    Tell Me

    why do your eyes pull me
    to drink from them
    ruin the lipstick
    I carefully applied
    pressing plum to your ear
    in whisper kiss
    when clearly you are not mine
    what bet did you lose
    what price are you to pay
    do you shudder
    are you afraid
    am I the booby prize
    do you think I'll take the bait
    and hang 'round your neck like an ace on 4
    albatross ing
    just for your info
    dont cry whiskey
    then abstain
    if you want me
    please be blunt
    look deep
    pour another round in blue
    cheers to the eyes that hold my heart
    let's drink

    Eat Me

    I've coughed riddles into the gray sky etched in solitude behind windows of green
    The burn of the scorn for caring turns me to drink and drink is plenty and I perish but still I careen zombie faced daily behind a mask of gritted veneers cracking turning to dust every minute
    blank slate trials forced into faces familiar
    estranged
    feral
    I was warned by an imbecile that trust is a lie but I refuse to believe that every body is a carnivore writhing eager to cannibal and if I'm wrong then
    eat me
    and I hope you are sated and that I comfort and warm your
    traitorous belly

    Take or Break Me

    the canyon spills with Bluestem under violet
    while fawns nest inside thickets by the plums
    evergreens sing and sigh

    but wait

    all of my world in on fire
    there is no water
    just the burning
    the bitter taste of ash
    the cinder underfoot
    the red in a dewdrop that pearls from my eye is a reflection of a spark coming
    I've swallowed down regret
    burned my tongue on tears too big to bury
    dug up bodies to bend an ear and for what
    I dont even know
    the passage of time is fierce I'm aging
    this body is decaying
    melting into a scornful ghost
    a separation
    and I'm just here waiting to see if these raging fires will make me or take me straight to the afterlife

    Puzzled
    (Tu Me Manques)


    there is blood
    gristle and bones and sinew are strewn
    I've been tearing myself up looking
    tu me manques
    where have you gone
    come home to me
    I am not whole without you
    my missing part

    Bring Me To Bittersweet

    I fail to believe
    dewdrops beading on honeysuckle to the lips
    could bring such pain
    my thirst for you never fades
    bring me to bittersweet
    where I may live or die
    lay me down amongst the yarrow and moss rose
    kiss me one more time

    Put It On Me

    sure it hurts
    bury me inside
    the wings of a bird flying high
    beak to the wind
    mountaintop seeking
    alone
    and then sit down and smoke the demons out of your heart
    free your memory of what could not be collected
    and when the rains wash across you I can be the one who grieves

    Slaked

    I wonder if the bottle feels as empty as I do after your lips pull back from quenching your thirst

    Flight of the Raptor

    what do you think we are
    could we ever be
    have we been
    is that what this is
    reincarnation déjà vu
    flashbacks of a previous life
    spent with you
    whatever this is or isn't I can't say
    I only know
    I thirst
    I hunger
    I ache
    I'm unable to focus
    I'm a festering wound
    in search of antibiotics
    I'm not whole
    I'm broken
    insane
    partly there
    I'm too tired
    I'm too nervous
    I'm a damn wreck
    my soul is in flight
    like a Raptor on rampage
    searching always searching
    for the come home call
    of your runway
    the welcome of your landing lights

    D.O.A

    those somber moments
    nesting dreams
    fragile like heartaches
    crack and slide out
    sinking
    six feet below the ground

    Love Me Wild

    Love me in dark corners and shady rooms with pool tables and dart boards smoke hanging like guaze curtains
    where music lives and wails pounding people to dance in slow rolling waves hold me tightly hands to hips stroking pulling kiss me shut off my sentence with your lips breathe in my laugh and giggle love me drunkenly like you're not leaving me stone cold sober longing for more
    lonely

    Mistaken

    I am careful
    to silence
    my singing heart
    with hands to
    my eyes
    my mouth
    stifle a scream
    that reverberates across the galaxies
    I thought I was made for quiet cascades of unsung songs
    somber studies
    through downcast eyes
    echos of stillness
    turns out I was wrong
