To you, dear

DSCN1412 (3)

At the mouth of this cage

The liquid fire in my belly has consumed it all
From blistering tears
To sweating rage
These ceaseless loops
have me drained
I’m a canary
A blue bird
My song is expanding
Can you hear me
Vibrating through our air
Flying to you, dear
Break me down
Break me apart
Flush my desires
Unplug my pent up heart
I will land softy in your arms
Breaking safely down
I will sing for you
When day has fallen
And my cage has met your ground

Liftoff

2015/01/img_0089.jpg

Can’t even have coffee
My stomachs so knotted
I’ll take a beverage
Carbonated
It’s not the fear of flying
It’s the longing for it
I’m a hopeful insomniac
Propelling through the turbulence

Why is it so hard to be alone

So painful
Like a stinging nettle grasping my bones
Some days it collapses my frame
And ill never understand it
Instead I live with it
These traumatic incidences
That push me further outside the fences
Watching others parade around inside
Switching partners in misinformed lines
The dogs bite my wings
And I’m off flying again
To land in another meadow
Alone I stay, alone I go
Misery is not my company
Neither is happiness
I step along the stones of shifting circumstances
Isolated
Yet always waiting
For hands.
