Poem: Particles

Particles drift from my skin into the airThey flake off and flare up and smooth the tearOnce, long ago, I was dark as the seaBut now I look into the water and the reflection isn’t me. Things change and skies break and we spin towards the endWe hold onto each other and covet the touch […]

Poem: Swathe

Poem: Starlight

Gracious glistening in the gutted heavens, Full or not, standing beside the moon, Under or over, singing a sad soliloquy Just a fading breath against the blue Breathe on, shattered stalks of green Breathe against the gutless gait of the forward Against the simple sighs of long ago Breathe on, and remember still.

Poem: Voyager

Exhaustion echoes as I sing dark sighs Divided by an ocean, communication compromised Heart bursts back into my stinging eyes Such sadness seen as I salvage sunrise Blue moods and black days keep warmth away I shiver and I shudder and sweat though I stay No matter what happens, I will find a way It […]
