Lidocaine

Nose runs deep Candy forgets to be sweet Cheeks turn to roses Body freezes, losing its heat Mind goes Wherever the wind blows Can’t discern who to trust Who to keep While kindness creeps through a stranger’s teeth Can’t keep up with feet Limbs become dimembered meat Give to you, this torso Conquerings for the feast But…

Origami

None of you is real until my arms have laid inside you You cannot seek still until a body rests beside you I have every yearning to be the light uncovering all the lies you Hold against me in this borrowed coat That I can’t seem to find my way into Let me be the ground to…

The Zoo

We live in a magical zoo So I gift to you this wanderlust view May you fearlessly take in all that you do As our expansive oceans embrace and support you May you tread forward determined and true Follow your heart as the sun Guides you through A menagerie of life Bright, like a morning…

Shhhh…I’m fine

I’d say you sound fine, but I’m reading your words Distilling your line as it twists through my mind Reading your words through my eyes Sounds so kind I’d say you want mine To reflect a like mind Picking at letters that Blur as the time Pushes miles between dots in our I’s I’d say…

Roses Dipped in Thorns

It wouldn’t be home without you. Mufflers sit still in damp rooms Lights lay heavy Keep tombs No life to the means you create Fill seconds with breath to saturate Minutes, when minutes could not relate Lungs vacate the premises Heart holds its state It just wouldn’t be home without you. Keys hang heavy with…

I’m Being Polite

I scrambled at my hope I was searching for some rope To bind myself & keep these thoughts at bay. I scrambled for some rope And searching for my hope Exhausted, my eyes opened after what felt like forever days. I scrambled with no hope Searching not for rope But seeking freedom from your writhing ways. I…

Egg

We both went out running We didn’t know where to We both tried at lulling But the sound bit back through Blood filled the mead Iron let to feed The rest of us to a crippling disease We both went out talking We didn’t know who to The words came out jumbled As it was…

Seraphim

Wind lifted your dress Shone light on your flesh Enthused my unrest I yearned for pilgrimage To love every inch of you Hold long in to you, lest. You saw my suit And gave in to couth Let in to the mess Held by grace & finesse Unraveling my truth Held between nail & tooth…

Pills cheap thrills

Tonight I take the easy way out Tonight we take the fall I flopped & kicked & screamed & I Had nothing left to call I let out anger, wrongs, & all Into vacant space in walls And still no end to bout This flood, your flood encased me all These ghosts still carry clout…

Pandora’s Box

These knees tremble and quake Struggle, yet keeping the pace While eluding the wake of exhumed remains Climb calling awake The stillness I’d made in my heart Time now is not for breathing Who wonts for believing? What of the comfort in seething? Anger in heeding Hand-selected clips to carry us blind into hours succeeding…

Those That Do Bloom

Your justified actions of empty transactions For now, I will let you believe But know this is truth That a lotus does bloom Chooses bravely to loom In the depths of dark water’s past leaves Lend your statistics I hear your ballistics As you cower and force to upheave This life how it breathes and…

Sliver of Greed

I want it, I need it Lend me your ear Here I am  your old friend Remember the cheer The beer that we spilled The dance, we’d revere I want it, I need it friend give me your ear Inhale then swill Life’s too easy Let me handle this bill My friend, my fool You wanted me here…
