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 in 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.

One Liner

narrative-794978_1920You tricked me into adoring you
You whispered songs in my ear and kissed my neck
I thought you were a gift 
And in those moments I can see 
That I rewrote my life for you
And even though I lost the plot
I worked you into my lines
Twisted you through the verses of my ways.
So now that you can walk past me in the street
Without a blink.Without a wink.
I wonder were our pages ever filled?
I called you an eraser before
But now I think you're highlighter.
Because you have shown me the errors of my ways
And though it has been ages and ages
I'm ready to remove you from my pages.

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.

VamPyre

vampyre

 

As you dwindled on the pyre

Sparks flew higher and higher.

Then one brave spark came to me

I watched it flicker, it was all I could see.

Through my stomach it burnt its way

And I was filled with you and what you could do

The magic spark that your life was made of

Was the making of mine now.

I knew I had power.

You had bitten me in death

With your smokey breath

While your embers  are still burning

I am already turning.

Fyre. Desyre.

 Vampyre.

Scrambled Legs

womens-2318996_1920

You scrambled my legs

Macerated my brains

I’m all sorts of jam but no preserve.

 

You liquefy the bones of me

Turn my organs to pulp.

I can’t speak. I gulp.

 

With just a lick and a nibble

All I can do is dribble.

I’ve turned into quite the fool

Standing in a pool of drool.
