DecisionI made up my mind,
Although it feels like the last step
In my complete undoing --
Like fabric unravelling,
I have nothing to hold onto
As I begin to rapidly fray,
As I fall to pieces.
Lessons learned the hard way,
With nothing to show
But a hand-full of loose threads,
And bittersweet memories.
Flotsam and jetsamAdrift in a sea of turmoil;
Hoping to weather the tempest of emotions,
Or drown in the infinite swell of the storms,
Lest the endless monotony of lace-like sea-foam
On velvet waves drive this stranded sailor mad.
Sirens lie among the weaves of my plot
-- I’m certain of it,
We play hide and seek with human feelings.
Fish-hooks and your words
Both have barbs -you try to anchor me
But still I cast my lines into nothingness,
Fin-like, your moods shift languidly,
Even if still, smooth and calm
I expect sharks, rocks, reefs - icebergs!
Other such perils in wait.
The ship-wreckage in my soul
I’m unsure if its slowly being reclaimed
Broken down into so much driftwood
Or repaired somehow --rebuilt
I salvage what I can.
Certain it breaches most rules for a sea-worthy vessel
But tell that to the marauders;
Flying their skull and crossbones flags
They could care less…
Even listing dangerously - I allegedly tempt them in.
I can count the holes-- still I float--
Although I feel wr
Country roadThe dusk was falling
And the road dusty and long
You drove and the radio was country and western
My tangled hair caught on our lips as we kissed and laughed
Scuffed cowboy boots and summer print dress
Carefree-- the world was ours
With your wolf smile and my cat-eyes
The middle of nowhere and we had the world
As the stars came to life…
What could have been
This ideal moment
I woke understanding I let you go
To become happy without me.
Fate cruel, but for the best.
Retrospect 2013July was wolves.
I remember that much looking back;
Wolves and moonlight,
As I piece together fragments of my year
Clinging to a month as I find a memory.
January half forgotten,
February missing for now--
Do I remember March?
Looking back March was dragons.
So was February now that I recall- those months had teeth and scales
I’m sure one of them had music….
April was flowers - I liked the flowers
That came before the black-dog that was May…
I remember it now!
January had angels and machinery, even August, October and November had wings.
August was a sense of freedom for me, although that seems an empty word now,
October had horns as well as wings - something slightly wicked in the mirror
Apt as its my month…
November brought the frost to the last of the blue flowers…
What months am I missing..?
Were they important…?
June and September now I think were feline;
a dainty washing of paws and whiskers,
Keep in Touch!
