Our Lullabies 

​ I remember when I got high

And placed my head into the lap of your lost lullabies 
the kind that sing about the cloaked corners of life


Mama’s sad and daddy’s gone 
Hush little darling, the tears will stop before long 
The moon is on the slow rise 
The sun is losing sleep with dark eyes 
I know your Idling in the repeat of black days
But the solitude of the desolate cocoon 
Is just a nap before growth pushes you through 
Hush little darling, the tears will stop before long 
Soon you will be in the sky with me 
Unearthing lullabies 
Of how the butterfly came to be

Wake Me 

  Broken apologies 
From all the times life used 

“I’m sorry”

Worn out whiskey bottles 

From hands clutching glass

To sink the rising sorrows

The window seat 

..where hope and my soul meet 

Now submerged from the pointed finger 

“Not today little girl”

Yeah ok..

Well I am pretty tired of this 

…teasing burial of my dreams

So I’m gonna make like a fairytale 

And sleep underground

Wake me with that kiss

When heartbeats sync with bliss 

 

Dangling Dreams

IMG_0313

Life’s a tease on a string
Dangling my dreams
Here…look how pleasant!
Yet immediately following the introduction,
Hands are bound, unable to feel the destination
So I shut out the distance
Camouflaged in my jungle of ecstasy
I slurp an erotic binge off my desired pleasantries
Welcome welcome into the trees elation
Stalk, bend, find and feed me
In between the leaves on knees Feasting for you
Sink me into the mud
Concealing my skin with your persistent touch
Don’t go away
Don’t make it stop
Pull me in
Gravitate me toward heaven
Wet and blissful
Eat your fantasies by the mouthful
Nothing else matters
Dreams in the distance
Dangle with resistance
So I create my own
A tiger not meant to be caged
Ravenous with hunger and ready to play
Are you coming?
