This isn't the end I hope
Though our bodies will never meet at the equator of life
Don't  stop visiting my dreams
Don't stop intoxicating my insides
With every sip of cognac on a Friday night
Let me feel your presence everytime you think of me
I hope you will...
Haunt me like a ghost
Miss me in my black brassiere
And your hands in it
Stay in my eyes as sadness
As love
As yesterday
As a mistake
As a break
As a loss I will never recover from
Promise me that even though  you let go
That you will never forget me.

My knees are bruised 
I have been kneeling for too long in prayer
Prayer for that song that a little bluebird
Sang in my deaf ears
For a destiny that can be found
Deep inside the seed of an apple tree
For a life hiding in the pollen baskets that are
Achingly heavy yet pollinating the pistils of
Hopeless sunflowers
A burden on a honeybee's thorax
Yes I pray for you everday

I am lost somewhere between my death and now
I float around the sun
Travel wormholes
Defy all theories of  time and space 
Somewhere in the middle of no where
Not in this universe
But some place where the ocean doesn't swallow the sun
I desperately seek a fissure in time
That takes me home
Where I hope to find you waiting for me
On a crisp summer day
Sitting under our favourite oak tree
Reading a book
That has my name on it

Seduce me with your words
For my heart is like no other
Broken and imperfect
Much like the gravel around this silent lake
The edges are rough and jagged
Cracks that run through it
Much like the age old porcelain crockery
My mother refuses to part with
It has more than four chambers now
I assigned each to a lost lover
Sutures from the scraps they left barely hold it in place
Blood oozes from my open wounds
From the despair each of them left behind
One more blow and it will explode
So seduce me with your golden words
Write me a verse or two
It will take more than your charm to heal 
This vermilion heart of mine
I need more than just  a provocation
And the smithereens of my heart are done settli...

TATTOO IT TO YOU

I want your eyes
Staring into my words on a cold winter night
I want your fingerprints on the pages of my life
I spent all the midnight oil in my heart to write

Look closely, read between the lines
The hope in my eyes and the midsleep cries
The amorous sighs on my breasts
The failing breaths on my chest
My sins, some broken truths
And the comforting lies

The bleeding heart, the desperate pleas
The good byes
The healing and the recovery
Its all you
Its always been you

Hunt me down with flowers in your hand
With hope in your eyes
And poems on your tongue
I am naked
Clothe me in the fabric of freedom
Give me new wings to fly the ambitious skies
I see you in cameos
On the montage of my life
Kiss me now
Come on in don't  hide
I want see you in full bloom
Stay with me
Don't be so uptight
I wait here with Jack and coke
Give me a ear
Listen to me, spend your stars
Let me cry
Let me die
In your arms
Let me die in your arms tonight

I built a chalet in the therapeutic  mountains
Feasting my eyes on the tea gardens
And gorging on the pink skies
As the sun sets on my youth

The years melted away 
And my skin shriveled like the barks of Cinnamon trees 
Silver and gold cutlery 
Found a home in my kitchen 

I hung my words on the clothesline 
Wet from the purple  rain 
Lamenting failures of a thousand weary poets
Words that made it out alive
From  my typewriter 
But the story never survived

There are some moments
Lucid like the sun
When the earth stands still
And the air is absent
There is no gravity in
the space that surrounds
Him and me
We are breathless yet alive
There are no laws of nature
There are no rules
Just vibrations and energy
Between the atoms that make us who we are
In those moments
There is just him and me
And the sweet death of
Ampersands and semicolons
A demise of distance and time

There I lay,  desperately happy
Rolling in the white snow of the sheets
Covering every inch of my porcelain
that you put your mouth on
This is what love feels like
Electricity runs down my spine 
And flowers bloom on that very spot 
Between my breasts 
Where you rested  your head 
The warmth of your breath and the soft caress
Of your lips
Still makes my body blush 
And the words you whispered still vibrate
Through my ribs and resonate in my racing heart
"I need this, I need you
I need this,  I need you"

Wisdom wraps itself around
Each strand of my hair
As I hold my freedom by the teeth
In every moment I am strong
And I am weak
I am fear and I am fierce too
I am victorious and I am defeated
I am stone cold and I am vulnerable
There are days when the pain travels straight to my bones
But then there are days of numbness galore
I am everything
A human  is supposed to be
And I will never apologize  for being one

I have dreams
Lucid and crystal clear
I fall to the ground listless
My bones are slivered like almonds
On the grave of all the tomorrows that hide a honey glazed story of you and me
The earth tries to swallow me whole
Asphyxiates me
I am on borrowed time
Like everything else that finds a home in its crust
I will give in and surrender
But not now,  not today
I am the seed
Of a blooming dahlia
And in my dreams
I always make it

I made this a ritual
Lighting candles at night
Being blind in love
And voracious in my touch was not easy
I fell and bled my knees
And broke my bones a few times 
I gorged on the musk on his skin
My legs, shabby chic 
Clumsy and sore
Fitted perfectly around his hips
He blew out all the candles at midnight
And I made love to his lies

TRES CHIC

Bottomless seas, the depth of her affection
Lips horizons that can be touched
Sunrises and sunsets
Perch up happily on her eyelids
And rainbows arch around her brows
The scent of happy sun flowers in her hair
And petrichor perfumes her muddy feet
Little bluebirds dance magically on her fingertips
So I color my skin blue
To dance with thee

Make it easy for me
Let me die in this ecstacy of being a muse
To a poet kissing my wounds 
With adjectives that I would never use
To address myself in a million years
Let me breathe in the metaphors you use
To describe the hope that clothes my naked sins and 
The pain in the mouths of the daisies 
That achingly bloom in my curls tonight
Stop killing me with those
Verses that you write for me everyday
Your love scares me
And even if I try
I can't match the depth of the ocean in your eyes

Hunt me down if you can
I am a prey in waiting
I will look into your eyes
And smile like I always do
I will give in
I will surrender
The whiskey absolves you
Each time I raise an objection

HOLD ON TO YOUR HEART
