Slumber

you slumbered
on your bed
of pain
while snakes
curled in my stomach
doling out the torture

you reached out half-asleep
to comfort
he said
maybe he thinks
you're worth it

To my ancestors

I am her;
wild-woman
 
feral-tongued,
lace skirted
 
damp feet pressed
into thuds of Earth,
those heartbeats  
tethering us together
in ancestral drum
 
I am her;
sorceress  
 
pressing death to my ear,
hearing its call in the shells  
of English shores
 
gathering mugwort  
by the roadside in jars
of hedgerow medicine
passed down generations  
to the sweet smell  
of sage scented fire
 
and I am
certainly her;
witch
 
unafraid of those
who stoke the flames
 
for I dance with the dust
of moth wings littering
their ashen pasts;
the patriarchal reason  
they taught others to fear  
a cunning woman’s heart
 
and I am mother,
grand-mother,
the hunted
& destroyed
 
I am the loved
I am the silenced;
all whose stories  
are null and void
 
for I am nothing
and everything too—
I am Goddess
of hearth and land
 
and I am not  
afraid of you
 
 
may the ground shake
where I stand.

(NoPoo 356) Secret Breathless Sigh

sigh....
at the
feather light
touch

the words
are whispers
from my heart
to you

motion
of meaning
is tidal
in affect

frictionless
connection
of the sea
and shore

visualise
my soul
pouring out
these emotions

for every poem
about love
i write
is for you

cause
if i can't
touch  you
in reality

then

my poetry
and dreams
will spoon you
instead

Reading List Wankers

 

 
 
 
to be fair  
they’re probably  
walking through  
car washes  
as well

Dare

Dare I say
it's all over
when it restarts
everyday
the deep ache
that belies
my smile

dare I

(NoPoo 357) The Ache Never Leaves


imbalance
in my
heart

is
devoid
of !ove

while
i
sleep

dreams
are
vivid

It
seems
so real

those
blue
eyes

that
pull
you in

the
truth
of feeling

ache of
unrequitted
love

never
goes
away

at dusk

   
   
   
   
it is wild    
falling into    
each other    
   
watching    
the world    
disappear    
behind tiny    
windows,    
   
it is wild    
to trace    
palms    
   
as skin    
wanders deep    
inside a forest    
without noting    
exit routes,    
   
it is wild    
to vanish    
   
into an    
unknown    
only we    
know.

Hopes

Lead me not to dusty trails
walked on by so many their tearful trials
I fear the feel of another's sorrow
when my own has yet to go
the forlorn weeping of a lover left
allowing hearts to weep, bereft
of the diamond h on the tiara
fought over by undeserving
pretenders

to the crown
and the throne
Yours

neves

 



i.

  be open

  not only
   to yourself
   but others
   around you,

  there is
  no other way

   don't kid
   yourself
   otherwise.


ii.

    stay soft

    it's incredibly brave
    to remain soft in a world
    that desires to harden
    you at the core,
    
    they say

    "nobody
    is remembered
    for being good"
    
    i believe
    that's a quote
    made by cowards.


iii.
  

   respect
   the space
   & others
   within it,

   the ones
   who may have
   quieter voices
  
   or have less
   of a voice
   than yourself,

   despite
   how powerful
   your words
   may come
   across

   actions
   echo louder
   than you'll
   ever know,
  
   nobody
   becomes
   untouchable.

  
  
iv.

      stay humble
    
      there have
      been voices
      before you

      there will
      be voices
      after you,

      do not
      strive to
      turn into
      mountains

      they do
      not move
      or grow.
  
      
  v.

       keep
       failing
        
       there is
       power found
       underneath
       the rubble
       of failure

       i call it
       wisdom.
      
        
  vi.    

            living is
            always a
            beautiful
            hell
          

vii.

           there is
           no wrong
           or right
           way

            keep
            going.

(NoPoo 358) SilencAnd Closed Eyes


feels
like
my heart

is
dragged
across

a bare
wooden
floor

picking up
each splimter
of love

that it
resembles
a pin cushion

carrying
each
memory

as if it
were an
open wound

leaving
tiny
blood trails

silence
hides the
pain

closed
eyes
the tears

On Geology

 
I know now why  
I prefer crystals
in their raw state  
 
dark residue  
of Earth dust
under curious  
nails

you know
about rocks
 
don’t you

Rain and Memories

woke to the sounds of rain
drumming on the old tin roof
remembered days of youth
when rain was to dance in

remembered first kiss
from a blushing boy
under a tree in the rain
innocence on the threshold of discovery

it rained on as blankets
were pulled to warm
an aging pain filled body
mere memories filling up a tapestry of dreams

I miss You, Soul.

(NoPoo 359) Fragile Shell

just
underneath
the skin

lays
a broken
heart

that
nobody
sees

it
still
beats

it's
silent
song

of
aching
pain

it
bleeds
out

love
so
slowly

an
emotional
torture

hidden
beneath
a fragile

shell
thats
cracking

3-foot banshee

  
It was cold today
 
cold enough for me  
to bust out the big coat  
in some Northern rite  
of passage  
   
and I needed it—  
that soft fleece lining  
as I walked across a frozen field  
& wind thundered down Winter Hill  
through low-lying valleys  
covered in stray sheep    
and old plane crashes.  
   
Sometimes  
my go to response    
is to plug headphones    
into my skull to drown out  
the noise of a thousand    
OCD neuroticisms my brain  
is throwing at my last  
strand of fuck  
   
but today, I heard her  
through huge decibels  
of German metal.  
   
She skidded    
across the path  
like an epileptic kite  
   
six    
   
(maybe seven)  
   
screaming into the wind  
in fear, or joy  
   
nobody really knew  
   
folding her coat back  
into a ship-like sail  
as the air filled fabric,  
parachuting her back  
ten steps from where    
she came.    
   
Guess you could say    
I learned a lot    
from the banshee  
   
how to live    
like you don’t    
give a shit  
for one—  
   
how to run into terror  
with a war cry    
that would make    
Lindemann shake  
   
and even now    
as I lay here in bed  
I wonder why I  
don’t become her  
   
what I’m really    
afraid of—  
   
questioning  
if I’m too old;  
too full of doubt    
to throw myself  
with total abandon  
into the wild  
upstream  
.
