Lost Love

Lost Love
†††
She curled up there in the darkness,
In the corner where no one could see,
On edges of the tombstones,
Her heart is shattered, and it bleeds.

Everything thing around her everchanging,
The whole world distorted and insane,
She feels that no place is safe anymore,
And it is taking a toll on her brain…

She knew better than to come here,
She knew it would only bring pain,
Tears wither down to soil her cheek,
Her mind now lost in the love of the game…

Her eyes try to pierce the darkness,
Terror reigns just beyond the night sky,
Her head spinning like the web of a widow,
Her heart broken and her soul contrite…

No one can hear her screaming,
It’s mostly because no one cares,
The one she loved gone forever,
And it is more pain than she can bare…

There was no denying she loved her,
Their souls seemed to be intertwined,
When together they didn’t even need to speak,
They could just stare into each other’s eyes…

But all that they had is gone now,
She has only herself now to blame,
A memory sealed in the darkness,
Her head hangs down in the shame…

It is over

Morning Mice

Warmth has helped you to uncurl
spread soft amongst the bedding.
A breeze has brought the swaying stalks
that whisper dreams from distant fields,
a tongue reveals a hungered look,
babbled under fresh melt brooks
that strokes your eyes to saucers.

A stretched out smile sets sail
on crushed up coracle leaves,
urgent through the rapids
then eddies tremble through the reeds.
Deep inside the riverbank
we twist entwined by tails,
and dance before the harvest
has time to find our veils.

Blended Heart

She owns my heart
For her mind had
me mesmerize and
listening to her talk
Which making her
heart melt like butter
Which is making
me happy because
she's my world
Our hearts will
one and the
same because
we are there for
each other for I'm
reading her heart
which is filled
with Love and Joy

For Love

For love lost and never found
for forgiveness undeserved
I crave rebirth

For the love of you
I stand against the everlasting crash
of slaughtering waves

For the love unrequited
I wait on the threshold of Eden
Not wanting to be denied

For Love.

New Constant

The brightest luminary
Of any night sky
My new constant
A guiding star
Giving me lover's sight
dreams beyond infinity-

want to dance with you
Lay my head
On your chest
Slowly sway
To some lover's song

And in your fiery flames
I will rise
Phoenix high
Burning away
pain
raising into our euphoria
Where I will love
My reflection in your eyes

want to be your thunder
The reason your heart races
The smiles beams

I won’t write you

 
we could stare
longingly at each other
beneath a starry sky
for hours, days

speak of connection
deeper than oceans
swirling through
blue tinged cliché

but the truth is, love
it means nothing
says nothing

is

nothing.

I will not
waste our time
on frivolous poetry

I am here;
my roots
are fathomless—

never try
to write that down.

Starry Eyed

 
Let us not cast our gaze downwards
as our fused humanity consumes  
as our shared divinity overtakes.  
Let each serve as guiding stars  
sherpas on this odyssey.  
 
Let us sink completely. Consummately.  
For every constellation ever contemplated is consecrated in this one love story.  
And every love story ever imagined indelibly imbedded in the depths of our six starry eyes.  
  
R.

i’ll fight you forever

 

because you kissed your way into my spine
you locked me out and told me
it was my fault for going outside

you told me to figure it out
and treated me like a child
i let you see me lose control
get sick
be high
on you
and you didn’t wanna take care of me
because that job was supposed to be
all mine

i figured that out

i can be better than this
and i was ready
but you had to hang me

out to dry

For A Short While

 


Funny, how
life drags us down roads, kicking
and screaming—

two immense years, then
I forgot to put blood
on my doorposts
in our giddiness of amour, so
the Angel of Death, indeed
knew where to come knocking.

Off you went, having been
someone’s firstborn, but
no stranger to inevitables, and
the one who loved me
the most.

The tales, you told—
all of them, true, and
I would have gladly cleaned up
after your nights of heroin and vomit, had
I known you, then.

But I did pluck your hairs
off the pillow in the morning, and
I’ve kept them safe--little
bits of you
that I can still touch.

Do you catch them, when
I blow kisses, heavenward?

At least I learned
what pure love
is supposed to be like.

Pierced Heart

Mine heart be pierced  
were it not so loved;  
or doth receive  
every light from above.

To he whom knows  
it shines so rare;  
where full it grows  
in want so bare.  

Yet not without,  
and still within;  
a regale beats  
'ere light grows dim.  
 
Let one light rise  
to beam upon  
whose heart believes  
in weak made strong.  
 
And lo, a song;  
an anthem's refrain --  
the mystery of dark  
wherefrom I call your name.  
 
    .....

Indigo Girl

You wore an indigo.. let me guess..
Last time I saw you was in a photo..
Now all I wish to get from you is a cameo..
The tenderness of your love is like that of a whitlow..
You the one I would like to call my widow..


I am raising my voice to sing for you I am not using falsetto..
See here my tempo is not in an allegro..
Even though am lumbering I will walk to reach you at the gulf of Mexico..
To protect you I got enlisted in judo..
Burden of your love weight cannot be measured in kilo..
Pretty girl you my love monitor..
Your presence cleans me up like a janitor..
Last time we met I look like an anonymous to you..

Let me down I am having an attack of a vertigo..
In your absence I only remain a no show..
Simple pendulum girl let me know am I a specimen to you?..
Please go easy girl you are my single dose regimen..

once upon a blistering truth.


 
 
looking for shells
the beach was blistering cold
wind tore at my resilience
 
I took that perfect picture
we framed it
accenting our space-
our love, just right
 
one look,  
and I was always
right back there
watching you ahead of me
thinking to myself
 
this moment defines

I wish I had a picture
of the moment
right after,  
when you turned,
smiled brilliant
 
... and kissed me so earnest...  
 
as the wind tore through
then
resilience
was suddenly unaffected
 
all I could feel
 
was truth.
