Words, my escape. Poetry, my salvation,
June 13, 2019
 

Feet are tired,
but not as tired as my mind.
Hands are tired,
but not as tired as my heart.

Take me to a river
where cold waters are raging.
For hands and feet to soak,
rest and refresh,
that they may journey
to where all worries wash,
out yonder in
the deep blue sea.

I have known love,
In your voice
when you say my name.
On your lips
when we kiss.
In your hands
that held mine.
Love found,
sadly lost.
Now the name doesn’t
mean a thing.
Cold lips,
no strength to hold.
I wish
I never knew
love at all.

Poetry, I found in‬
‪the steady rise and fall‬
‪of your chest
while you sleep after‬
‪making love.‬
‪Hearts, beats in tune;‬
‪a slow steady cadence‬
‪that’s music to my ears.‬

Hearing the rain gently tap on my window sill never fails to put me in a reflective and poetic mood. The house is so quiet right now. Probably because it’s a Sunday and everyone else wants to sleep in. My work schedule has been pretty regular the past weeks and my body clock has gotten used to waking up and going to bed at the same time. I don’t know if this is good or bad but I think I find the daily routines boring. Plus I don’t get the chance to catch up with my friends on social media, which is again I can’t tell if it’s good or bad. If there’s one thing that this rain is reminding me right now is that I can stop for a good quiet time. Feel a warm cup of coffee in my hands, smell the arom...

one,
I gave only to one.
t’was the first
and the last,
but it left me in pieces
and i break over and over.

A daily cascade of
broken glass shower me,
shedding worth,
skinning flesh raw,
gutting me to the core.
All, for the only
one.

All we are,
you and I,
arms and limbs,
pumping hearts;
red river coursing
through our veins.

Walking different roads,
step strides on paths
where our feet takes us
towards the same destination.

Time will come,
breath shall escape
to deflate our lungs;
full-stop journeys where we shall all lie supine.

The  warm earth
welcomes all
in the end.

words of love
meant for love
flowing from source
came up empty

a barren wasteland
parched and desolate
for falling in love
was a distant memory

Life is the best teacher they say and I have never come across one as persistent as she is. One thing I have never learned is how everything is temporary. Once green leaves on a bough turns to rust and will soon be snapped from the branch. Even the sun gets tired of the day—sets to give way to night. I question why I had to meet you. Why I even let you shed some light in the comfortable darkness that I was always so used to. You became a spark, a tiny ember of light that brightened and warmed an otherwise bleak and empty space. I let it burn a little. Fed it shavings from conversations on life and sweet nothings. I was stubborn and never really  listened to the lessons... The embers will glow...

Can you catch the days, put on repeat?
You’re a disease contracted, metastasized.
swept by the wind, gone with time.
Out of touch, out of sight
but your presence is always deeply felt.

I welcome the tears if by falling it meant that you held my heart enough to forget the hurts and moved it to find  joy again.

I wanted to write
a poem
so I could let you know

about a boy
I loved
that didn’t even know

love had I to give
for whom
but none to receive

I tried hard
to forget
but this heart would not let go

I’d write a poem for you
only if
you knew that the boy was you

You’re a maggot
burrowing the insides
of my mind.
Awake or in dreams,
slithering  back
to feast over and over.
Until there’s nothing left,
nothing left of me.

Always On My Mind

i remember you
in the afternoons
when golden sun on skin
warmed hands
and petals entwined
our fingertips

i remember you
as dusk appeared
while shadows played
beneath the trees
with falling leaves
kissing our faces

i remember you
in the darkness
when silence spoke
and air left my lungs
as they lowered you
to the ground

i remember you
every fucking waking morning
sunlight streaming memories
of your sweet smile
slowly drifting, fading
flying with the wind

As dawn undressed the night,
shadows flee to hide from light.
Cloak disrobes from branches bright,
baby birds chirp, awake to flight.
What was black with stars
became sailing clouds of blue.
Sunlight peers a shimmering hue.
A burst of color on a morning dew.
Another day to right the wrongs.
An opportunity to say thank you.
To welcome life as always new
as dawn undressed the night for you.

i grieve for a tear
that fell
from eyes
that turned dry

i sigh for air
that escaped
these lungs
that forgot how to breathe

i long for warmth
that grazes
this skin
that has turned cold

i miss love
that lived
in a heart
that once knew how to feel

through dry eyes
the breath of life still flows
though cold this touch
it was love that turned it so

Night Sky

I closed my eyes
and my breathing
slowed, steady.

My body relaxed
and became one
with silence around me.

In the absence of light
under a canopy of sparkling stars,
I laid on the cold damp earth.

A gentle breeze
rustled the leaves of the towering tree
that was beside me.

T’was nature’s concerto,
heard in hopes to fine tune
this tone deaf heart.

Moonbeams sliced through
smoky shadows as it turned the strands
of my black hair to silver.

It was like the first time
I have seen the night sky
in a very long time.

What Purpose

Often enough I sit to stop and think.
What purpose these hands, what can they give?
A hand that bleeds, writes life in ink.
Often enough I sit to stop and think.
Rivers flow from this heart and mind in sync.
To lift, create, be positive.
Often enough I sit to stop and think.
What purpose these hands, what can they give?

Washed Clean

footsteps on the sand — washed clean by the waves
sin engraves, this blessed land
yet you chose to hold my hand

it's another day — for the sun does rise
heartfelt cries, were trapped in grey
you released wind swept away

clouds above my head —tears were falling rain
numbing pain, felt like i'm dead
your love has saved me instead

Abandoned pieces

Of what was

Lingering emptiness

Weighing heavy

                                        To Worship You

                                         I walk
                                         this evening shadows
                                         barefoot.
                                         Green grass
                                         wet under my feet.
                                         Silver sheen
                                         of moonbeams on skin,

It started with a flower. A flower origami.
A silver paper flower origami made from cigarette foil.  You chose to give it to me but I never really knew why.  It was twenty seven years ago  but I could still remember that faint smell of cigarettes as I brought it up to my nose.  I held it gently like it had fragile petals. It wasn't real but the feelings were— the ones I had for you. You were my first Rose and thorns, a constant thought through the years; the what if  and the what could have been. I cried when I said goodbye. I didn't think I'd cry again now that it's you who said goodbye.  I'll never forget these words you shared with me. You said "Life is like a guitar...Sometimes it's in t...

Sad Eyes

They were the most beautiful
yet saddest eyes
I have ever seen.

Like a faint pink blush
left by a hesitant sunset.
A tiny sparkle of starlight
shining through a dark cloudy night.
Rippling silhouette of moonlight
hidden behind the trees.
A dewdrop on a leaf
in the morning, evaporating in the warm air.
A butterflies' flitting gentle kiss on flower buds
never settling for one.

They were the most beautiful
yet the saddest eyes
I have ever seen.

Soulmates

There was always something about the moonlight
streaming through this bedroom window.
In the darkness we played.
Hands touching, exploring, teasing.
Gentle caress of love on my skin.
You said,  "Remember me when I'm gone my dear."
"In this dark room, I will be the moonlight that
will shine and dance on your skin."

Shadows of love and light
Playing gently on skin
Warming this cold heart

Deceived

How do I begin to utter
the voice this heart contains?
Out of tune refrains—broken notes.
Hymns I wouldn't want to sing.
A veil of lace covers my face,
an unpatterned woven loom.
An intricate mask of lies,
becoming my second skin.  
I live inside a hollow.
Where mist and darkness swallows.
Stuck to a time that's passed,
shackled to a love that was.

clipped wings trapped
in the folds of deceit
a dying butterfly

Blue

I look into your eyes
and I'm drowning
in the deep blue sea.

Buoyed up words of hope
from your mouth floats
as I hold on to debris.

I close my eyes
and the waves took me deeper.
Suddenly, the sea's not as blue.

There's nothing to hold on to.
Only my pale skin has turned blue
as I drowned in you.

Look for me when stars collide.
When light shatters into dust.
I will be like those early morning
dust motes that swirl around you
making you sneeze.
That persistent twinkle
when you squint your eye.
I may be gone but I shall be with you,
not in the heavens above but where your
eyes see light in darkness;
where your skin feels warm to touch
as sun rays peek thru the curtains
of our kitchen window.
You shall sit on my favorite chair
and reminisce how many glad moments
we shared over coffee cups.
You shall hold the cup in your hands
it will feel good and warm like
when your hand is on my cheek.
You shall smile and know
that I am right there
as you pour yourself another cup.

Darkest of nights
I stepped on a hole
And it swallowed me whole
Trying to make sense of it all

I'm falling
Falling
Falling

No end to this fall
Air escapes my lungs
Pain squeezes my heart

And the blood drips
Drips
Drips

I can't see the end
This darkness drips
It has swallowed me
Whole in this hole
As I fall

Left A Trace

Sliced sunbeam filters through
my bedroom window
A light and shadow play
by fingers on upturned palms

The bed sheet is crumpled
  but only on one side
Head indent on a pillow
No hair turning golden spill

Perched on the sill
  a bird is happy to shrill
While here my cold cheek
  no peck to receive

Eyes open to daylight
but really wishes to be shut
To not see you
To not feel you
