Andromeda’s Web

I’m not a girl with the sea at my feet in the morning
Having been beyond the horizon in the dogeared pages of the night sky
The vast encyclopedia of the love of lovers
Is trapped inside time’s vacuum of loneliness
The light I know is from distant memories
And it again is consumed by empty promises
Like wishing upon a star that faded long ago
All desire has fallen prey to the science of lies
This hurt masquerades as the truth
My pain is beautiful

Last Prayer 

Crouching beside my bed
in case time will vaporize me before the light of day
I am just me
While here, in this anopheles pose I am alive
Here I am innocent
barren and bereft
of that which I found within the ebb and flow of your tenderness
I need
I hunger
Electricity rushes through my fingertips
delivering precursory messages from the depths of my soul
alerting me that I will have you again
I must
I am not woeful in my yearning
as I disguise myself within these misaligned shadows
that quietly creep across me
and hush behind the umbra
that lies beyond the afterglow
The hollow late night air scorches me with its bold confessions
As I consider my own salvation is lost deep within your arms
a last prayer drifts from my parted lips
For once I was lost, and now I am found.

Is this Reality?

The curl of my lashes
Draws you up in my mind

Scattered dust and spilled ashes

This crush feels unkind

The core in the deep

The love lost in the seam

Smudged with a weep

Iridescent moonbeam 

The crinkle of a brow

How my beauty feels so pained

Choked by time’s hands now

My light is forever feigned

For the Scintillating Star Shine

When love spills throughout the night

Where tears once had all the fanfare

And lusty ways conquer hearts

That never knew such care
The parting lips of an eternity of sorrow

Release the pain within

Such fierce kisses commence

To let a new eternity begin
Take flight in me

I’m the other half of your soul

Find your way into the heavens

Let’s make each other whole
Up in the starry sky

Reach across all time

To where you’ll feel the real me

I’ll be worth the climb

A Provocative Demise

Begin to end the height and depth of forever before it meets the snow-capped peak

This love in the infinite beauty of the starry night sky

Where the roads descend and climb on our path to the windmills

When a look turned into a touch

Reaching out for eternity

Beyond the heartbreak we surpassed

With each tightened bind

Blind to the unraveling 

And so it crawls back to me

Heavy against the floor

Struggling knees and heart-achy belly

The language of a soul’s plight throughout utter desolation 

Because without you

my world ends

For All Eternity 

The curtain closes on the day
The clouds came to lead the way
Just know that you have all of me
For all eternity
I think about you even when I should not
I loved you even when I could not
I fear the moments that have traveled on
Plucked me from your heart and are gone
Those moments that lie between the love of lovers
Fall victim to the night like the stars’ cloud covers
Where do sailors look when they search for the shore
Wandering alone with the night tide as a lure?
Waiting for the stars to shine again
Waiting for my broken heart to mend
Waiting for the light of day
Waiting for you finally say…
That you want me
For all eternity

Star Wars

He’s a million stars

Lighting up a perfect sky

The blanket of night

Wondrous to the naked eye

Telescoping,

His heart’s astray

The Kuiper Belt

In the Milky Way

Scared to know the truth

So he’ll never hear a sound

Frozen tears fall

But never hit the ground

Shattered

I’m the pieces that linger

In an echo

Of a come hither finger

A million stars

Beyond the curtain of candlelight

I’ll linger in a dream

To escape his heart’s flight
