Sun-shadowed

Silhouetted by light-traced form    
around the window, behind the door-        
she stands, her hand upon its knob      
ready to turn, and yet she cannot.        
       
It will not open, that solid trunk      
safety net of former forest-        
not by grasp nor pull, revealing      
a living world beyond her being.        
       
Anxiety, birthed from shade-        
offers security of darkened wing.        
Riddles life a haunting maze,      
hand-feeds fear with doubt and lies.        
       
Today, she will not face the truth-      
in shadows safe and rumors loud.        
Maybe tomorrow, or even next year-        
or, maybe never, so it appears.      
       
Yet, Love is faithful, standing strong        
gently reminds, Take your time;        
if we cannot overcome in Life      
we most certainly will in Death.        
       
Where shadows dare not exist      
amid Source Energies of Truth.

Kathy is a very prolific writer who couples deep feeling with spirituality.  Her writings reflect an astute observation of both a vulnerable self and family history.  Her life line to the world is poetry, and her dedication to the craft is an inspiration to those who read her offerings of love and hope.

cult groupie

  
cult groupie I hang on your jock  
you're all woman...I know  
but you got more balls then most men do  
a flip of the hair says you don't give a shit  
 
I'm on my knees trying to please you  
feminist cuntress---
you protest male egos so I don't have to  
you burned your bras  
so you wouldn't have to carry no hanger-ons  
I hear you say step off in my thoughts  
 
lady I can't help but to be attracted to you  
you got a steel vagina that talks for you whoa  
I'm deeply impressed narcissism is your dummy  
you made a punk out of him
 
it's all in a state of mind
you're in a state all your own
hallucinating truths to go to war with
 
my demons all hold protest signs
cos they have to pay taxes working for you
narcissistic yeah me too
 
I hang from a rope on a burned out light bulb
says this way out  
back me up on this were cool right?
suicide was never an option

[I'll] let her be ...               [a past passed lament to Crim]



today she turns 50...
& her poetic days
are slowly
tearing away
in tribut~ional trinkets
of tears ink'd
for we are vampires meek...
dying/drying within
for a desperate taste
of her blood[s] gifted;
though the godly darkness of her wing'd beauty
remains un'stained today
in words poetically cherished through [her] poem & poems
she does not know how grieved & lamented
she has suddenly become
under a vista of shattered sun's;
& perhaps & maybe
she is somewhere near
far & beyond, nurturing the divine
criminals of her sin
only she can understand;

[I'll]
    give her
            r o o m...

                [I'll]
                        let her
                                breath'e ~



[I'll] let her

be...



can you?




[devlin’s note:  this was a tribute piece I had written to Crim who was absent from DU, and was written on her 50th day of absence. . .I had missed her like we all had missed her, and rather than let this piece flounder in a flashdrive, I thought to re~pub. . .Good to have had you back, my Queen … I love you and always, your Ally in Darkness ... me]

Devlin i'm calling you

 
masturbate filth
let it talk for you
the devil's in the house
and he's eyeing you
 
you've been away far too long
Devlin i'm talking to you
within perverse pleasures
i'm stroking you
a thousand cuts on a bitch
will sing for you
 
depravity is King  
where you are concerned
don't leave me with blue balls
aching for a tongue slicing
only you can deliver
please I beg cut me in two
 
then decorate your body  
with my entrails
and parade for me
I know you lady  
I understand your needs
they've not been met
 
your pussy wet and creaming  
for death's deadly attentions
you fuck and get no relief
cos men with limp dicks
intellectually speaking  
do nothing for you
 
they need bring their wicked
their lethal
or don't bother stepping to you
cum demoness of the night
i'm calling you

LADY OF WISDOM AND GRACE

Her name is poetry itself.
Like a breeze in a forest whispers.
Evoking images of beauty,
tender and comforting feelings

From a Swedish genesis.
Now makes more magnificent
the majestic highlands,
the rocky shores of Scotland.

Loving mother.
Model of compassion.
Salve for wounded souls.
Unconditional friend.
Unimpeachable confidant.

Equestrian goddess.
She on horse mounted,
move together with fluid elegance.
On the course,
jumping rail, fence, or oxer undaunted.
Or on a lonely beach gliding,
hair, mane tousled by mist laden sea breeze.

Her words, unpretentious,
forged in her heart,
onto the page flow.
Untainted by convention or circumstance.
arranged by innate artistry
Satisfying saposexual lust.

Dedicated to Sophie Ericson who, I hope, is just on hiatus from DUP. Currently there is no active link for Sophie's work.

My reasons for choosing to spotlight Sophie are apparent in my piece.

ballerina

 
i
woven throughout your artistry are blood and tears
tears for the man who holds you--  
until the rest of the world disappears
 
ii
he kisses all your scars--
all the little scars that make up a woman...stain you beautiful  
you carry each one with grace the way only a woman can
 
iii
masochism an art form you ascribe to but it's never defined you
you're a woman born of pain
born into a world that crushes hopes and dreams
 
iv
ballerina pirouetting addiction
a thousand poppies will make you sleep to dream a new dream
imagine one into being and it will be so
 
v
in the field of illusion, you cast magic  
cast it on the airs hoping it comes back to you
in my heart I know it will your magic is pure
 
vi
I weep reading your love letters to the Sadist
your soul is neatly tucked in its pages
I read between the lines to find your heart  
corsetted and breathtaking as always I find it
 
vii
beautiful one I love you

beautiful Sky 🌹

 
sigh to kiss the skies...vulnerable beauty
delicate to the touch
dances on clouds
swirls, dips, and twirls in the energy
just to reach you

beautiful Sky_Dancer
I want to hold you
will you let me touch your divinity?

with a tender lilt, I serenade you
gorgeous Seraphim
eternal Goddess over the heavens

sister of my breast
your heart skips a beat
and I feel your love in my chest

sweet fountain of melancholy
within a breath of wind
you come unto me
bringing with you loving thoughts
of your soul's longing

I see you on the horizon
tattooing your desires on his skin
he responds to your calling

kiss the skies tender beauty
he is deeply feeling you 🌹

~ Valentine Hades


my dear[est] sanguine Valentine:
you don't know
how many times
I've committed this crime,
standing 'neath
your poetic rain
holding back
my burning lust, or trying to keep
from bursting an orgasmic [blood] vein;
and there was also a time
~and perhaps maybe even two~
when I felt like
gutting into my flesh and
ripping out my heart
and sending it directly to you
just so you could hold it, feel it
bloodied, beating,
oozing black and
pulsing blue
just a simple, harmless token
of how I'm such a fanatical for you;
so will you do me the honor
by sending me your best knife,
I promise I'll keep us a secret
especially from your wife ~

limerick[s]      of an old Crow


I sat
with you
on a bench
eating a
twinkie
and
watching you
feed
paper'd
crumbs
to the
crows
because
somewhere within
their black
feathers
you
see ink
because
somewhere within
their
caw'ing
souls
you see
a poem;
all
I see
are pigeons
in
disguise

I consider Crowfly a versatile poet who can pen poetry in shades of gray and never be reprimanded for it simply because he knows what the fuck he`s doing!

rensaku - moonlight tiger

1  
silver jungle moon  
soft pads caress the night earth  
golden eyes seeing  
swift the lightning yellow flash  
swifter still the kanji’s stroke  

2  
yellow candles burn  
the sensei’s shodo in black lines  
tiger’s smiling mask  
a simple breath taken in  
release universe expels  

3  
jade pandora’s box  
brushes ink a table set  
words form from fire smoke  
at every turn careful steps  
at every step careful words  
   
4  
silver jungle moon  
soft thoughts caress darkened air  
tiger eyes burning  
her simple lines bring world’s birth  
how rare night and moon would bow  
 
 
 
How rare a gift indeed is Jade Pandora. I believe this is not only my first rensaku, but my first tanka, as well, which I never would have accomplished had it not been for Jade.  
 
When I came to DUP I only knew sonnets. The mathematics of form was all that made sense to me. But Jade showed me through her work and our collaborations the beauty, grace, and structure of free form and the Japanese short forms.  
 
With ultimate love and reverence- I bow to my sensei...

Journey

   
   
She’s on a journey of the mind.
It’s cold with rain outside today,
The calendar says early May,
Her view is dusk, the end of day.
 
While all else in her world will keep,
She’s on a journey of the mind.
When she’s awake what will she find,
As unclaimed bags are left behind.
 
Not having touched a doorknob yet,
To watch a film as it unwinds.
She’s on a journey of the mind,
Incoming night, closing the blinds.
 
The images, as they recede
Is poetry to pass the time.
With pen in hand and unconfined,
She’s on a journey of the mind.    
 
 
 
 
Heaven_sent_Kathy:
Kathy is a poetess of her own pathways to answers of questions many of us as poets still seek, and would we recognize the answer if it hit us between the eyes.  Her subjects are often unique because it’s done in her own uncompromising style - especially when it comes to her faith and spirituality.  Kathy is never a ‘one note’ poet; enlightening, compelling, and thought-provoking.    
   
 Relatively recently having ventured into poetic structures less familiar, but responds consistently as a quick study.  As keen as Kathy is to stretch, I feel she still shines when going deep within her well-honed archive of life’s experiences through her free verse writes.      
   
She pulls no punches while staying grounded.  I thank her for the influence she’s brought to our poetic enclave.   With much respect, this is Jade, watching and reading.
