Saturn Rising

The sun set behind a veil

Still twilight stripped me

Exposing my truth

Feel the yesterdays

Fall around me

As the night’s faint light

Traces every beat

Of my heart

While the first star

Confessed my life’s journey

Straight into your arms

Love commands me

To submit 

To time’s opaque omnipotence

And throughout the night

Your tenderness is all that remains

Upon my flesh

Jupiter Descending 

Feel me
Completely fall to pieces

In your embrace

The darkness that loitered

Scatters in the starlight

As my skin wears yours

Like the dense night air

Cloaks the dreams of lovers

And my heart is the sound

Of ten thousand drumbeats 

Before the crowd of eternity

Looking upon us

From a luminous perch

Beyond the lusty shadow

Of my body’s surrender

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

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

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

Constellations

 

You looked beyond all bane
In the soft trail of the night

Distant as Phoebe’s terrain

Truly mild and lacking fight

Who I am when I’m with you

A question answered long ago

Mul.apin and a better view

The night sky is what I know

I’m diamond hard and shiny 

Intangible like a far off thought

A vast universe but tiny 

Sometimes happily distraught

In tears over the beauty I see

In the future, it’s you without me

You’re the reason I’m feeling pained

A reflection nebula, my light is feigned
