Half-ass Bad-ass

hands-1031131_1920.jpg

You’re not really a rebel, are you?

With your skull tattoos and lost soul vibe.

You sit on a bike that you can’t  ride

You smoke pot all the time so you can’t drive.

You walk with a swagger but have no sway

Your ridiculous stories give you away

Your ‘live in the moment’ constant retort

Although you really do nothing of the sort.

You like heavy-metal fine.. ok

You over insist that you’re not ‘gay’

You’re mean though

I’ll give you that.

Shut me out of life

Make me feel like a twat.

You’re a rebel without a reason

I committed no crime or treason.

I wanted you and that was all

Your worst crime was to pretend to fall

You’re full of crap and rather crass

You’re really not a good.. bad-ass.

Follicle

model-2405131_1920

You are tied to me at just the tip

While you wave in the sky

The root of you is always with me

In me.

So flow in the wind

Because in the end you won’t fly away.

You won’t split

You will stay.

(I hope)

Glycerin Love

bath-988502_1920

Your glycerin love washes over me

I’m in a lather

A right palava

Soaked to the bone with your sudsy desire

Wet but no fire.

I’m bubbling at the skin

Living in soapy sin.

You slip and slide

Giving me hope

Soap on a rope

A leash.

But with every rub and scrub

Every wallow and soak

You fade.

Moral Low Ground

IMG_20170626_103341

And I’m mostly good ..mostly kind

But with you and because of you

I have dabbled in bold

Submerged my clean slate in mud

Oh but for those moments of bliss and shakes

Will I spend eternity with the snakes?

And if  I believe in God will She forgive me?

Why should She though?

I knew it was wrong.

But She gave me these earthly wants

I mean She pushed us together didn’t She?

And who did we really harm?

Is that the point?

Better the devil you know

But she doesn’t know.

She doesn’t know.

I do.

FeelineĀ 

And nobody mourned her death

Except for a single white rose that bobbed in the wind

And from the corner of my eye reminded me of her return in the morning

Soft and cautious on the gravel

Her miaow catching the wind

Her little soul my only companion on many a rainy day.

Were Wolf

wolves-654839_1920

Can I be kinder to myself this time ?

Not go looking for cotton in a cement wall

Please don’t let one word,undo me again.

I have to be brick this time.

I don’t need a wolf at my door to tell me he can blow me down.

Don’t let me read into it all

Because I do, you know.

I think that it means something.

That the universe is pushing us together

But maybe it’s just testing my new home.

Maybe it’s the final test

Before I put you to rest

The final howl

The final growl

When you were wolf

And I was moon.

Tease

“Tease the light.” He said

Let it in but not to stay.

Allow its brightness, momentary rest in your eyes.

Too long and you will turn blind.

Too long and it will burn the irises of your soul.

“Tease the light” he said.

It comes from a million miles away

To brighten up your day.

But there are black holes out there and if you stare too long into space.

They’ll eat up your face.

Skim

IMG_20170627_092641

You didn’t see the blemishes, You didn’t feel the bumps

The bristles, the lumps

You skim your tongue over me

As if I were made of milk

Lapping at silk

All the parts I hated

Berated over the years

Have disappeared.

Your fingers

Your lips

Are smoothing me over

Like a brand new shape

A perfect sculpture

And I’m beginning to think

I’m not all that bad

I’m beginning to think..

Havoc

Untitled design (1)

We cling to each other like limpets 

As wretched storms howl above

Hurling light back and forth 

Havoc outside our beautiful bliss.

Angry seas won't take you from me
Nor greedy fingers searching for salty mouthfuls
Your softness is mine tonight
Your ebb and flow 
The angry mass can come and go

But now the winds have calmed

And gull cries can be heard again

The floating remnants of unfortunate wrecks

Will keep us buoyant 

And though we may feel a chill

All around us the water is still.

Lug

IMG_20170625_174512

You don’t know it but I still lug you around

Close to the ground

You weigh more than you should and I still don’t know why

And sometimes when I least expect it

You fall on the floor

All the remnants of what we were

Lie scattered about for all to see.

I’m getting better though

Better at packing you away.

At folding all those wrinkles out.

And someday(when I’m ready)

I will leave you behind on a train

And you will be the one who is lost.

Lava Girl

couple-731890_1920

This is what I’m made for

To float like dandelion seeds in the wind

To dream of your tongue on my navel

To taste the sap

To sip from your tap

This is what I’m born for

To crave your skin

To long for you to be in

And out

And around and around.

I will linger and linger

For the tip of your finger

Like a seal on rock

To feel your ….

I’m lava now

Hot and molten

Waiting to erupt.

Obliterate

city-1759377_1920

Suddenly your face was the face

Your eyes were the eyes

The skies

The heavens.

And once more I am obliterated

And all my pieces are scattered in the wind.
