Poet Introduction I alternate between silly rhymes about mundane things, and all the heavy stuff in my head that I can't say out loud. I'd like to say I share my writing to enrich others' lives..but honestly? I'm mostly just spilling the junk out of my head before it pops.
this is my time dark, all is still all asleep but not me Iím busy approaching the heart of a mystery a secret force the face of truth
senses heightened but not the usual ones something within me bleeds outside the lines reaching into the dark and inviting it in
time slows and the riddle becomes so tangible I could almost unravel it by hand if I could only grasp its tail I know itís right there just inside the dark so close, I reach pulse quickens nostrils flare pupils widen ...
Its warmth is addictive - the hint that perhaps with a stir and a stoke and a soft sigh of breath it could flare to new life blazing passion-brief heat
But † it demands tears for kindling a beating heart for fuel and will burn through your soul † fast as oxygen † One can also † choose to leave it Lay the poker down and refuse to feed it Hold tight to the memory † of its heat and light But welcome the relief † of finally † †† letting it † †† † † † † † fade ...
Awake again. Body refusing to rest Ė twitchy, exhausted but uncomfortable. Mind joins the party Ė why not? Words and ideas start tumbling, like those balls in the big bingo drum - turn, turnÖ letís see what pops out?
Worthless phrases, no hint of beauty or meaning. Occasional gems taunting, mocking me, but never enough to hang a poem on. Incoherent babble, wasting my time. Iím out of bed for this??
A hazy sense of something hovers, Annoying like a fly around my head refusing to land where I can smack it. ...
The air oppressive heavy on my chest Pressing me to the couch like a clumsy boyfriend Neurons lethargic Not enough caffeine or urgency to resist This wonít kill me so why struggle Apathy reigns as drops against the window throb inside my head Close eyes to focus on the next viscous breath
Some days to keep breathing is all the fight I can summon.
