Unfinished novel

The protagonist
Mr average, with a twist
 mend my ways, be the new evangelist.

Smouldering bridges, of bloods misuse
life chewed, with a missing tooth
one chapter, to make good

this brand new flesh

 


is hard
reducing
to a single
title

difficult
to gouge

but easy
to pierce,

it bleeds
into weeks
trying to
watch
flowers
grow

under
white
suns.

I am Dryad

a child of the earth
a flower of the soil
a voice of the air

a gossamer
breathing air
an amoeba

no reflections
nothing
I am Dryad

I exist not.

a velvete essence.


 
Spun lavender
and rose,
hearted  
like  
vast blue skies  
 
Purposeful  
outstretched arms
wrapping souls  
in simple  
words
 
utterly empathic  
 
Oh, love
 
unsurety, too.  

shearing
deeply


Exploring,
finding myselfó

my place.

EXPRESS LANE

People think that sometimes
Itís not enough to get there
You gotta get there fast

And for disbelieving this
I am left alone
An immovable stone
Meditating amongst rushing waters

Praise the Lord, and Pass the Chocolate .

I'm fascinated to know
how it feels to die....
without actually doing it.

Hershey's quells that fear, and
I'll trust Jesus
to ambush me in my sleep,

when it's time...

Look into my eyes...there lies my soul

I am her...

and him,

and someone else
that I do not know,

filled with light,
weighed by darkness

loyal like life
depends on it

I am they...

and them.
