Never let go 



Mile upon mile 
My love piggybacks on a twisting spiral 
An essence through the atmosphere 
Scattering shades from heaven 
Angelic tunes tinted with euphoric blue
Watercoloring your morning horizon
I want you to know where I stand 
No matter the gaps of earthly space 
That climb and stretch in between 
The physical us
May you hear my voice spilling upon you
The truth is I am right there
The flower in your palm
The breeze licking your skin
I have never let go
Since the moment we began

Seasons 



Long has been the day

When summer soothed the breast of autumn 
Will you
Bring our plants back to life again?
I’m dazed and flushed
Off everything that could have been
Like the tin man 
Searching for what I never knew I had 
I see you in every shard of glass
Crystals splitting colors within the dark 
As leftover memories provoke my heart 



Dilapidated Whimsy 



This ones for you Johnny


The dark woods lay 

Defeated 
With caterpillars plucking worms 
Mistaking them for apples
Velvet poison from the queen
Inquisitively asking misleading questions
To the bunnies celebrating…nothing 
The kitty cat purred to the hum of his own hallucinations 
The whimsical fantasy
Now high jacked by needles packing hazardous material
The tiger and her protector arrive…
To the magical dilapidation 
The whimsy was missing!
This can’t be
Off to the queen!!
Off with her head- pop her cherry
Kick back and…swing!
Tiger bites with black and white stripes
Firework burns down the illusions
The distraction of dilapidated particles now in flames
New parts
New start
Characters wide eyed
Riding on unicorns
Melting plastic needles 
Raising the flag of whimsical
Mushrooms sprout from the mud
Nature reborn
Another rebuilt fantasy
With a tweak from the twins
Tiger and Sunshine 
Save the dilapidated whimsy
Again..

Transparent, Me



I’ve missed you terribly

Like when Jesus left Mary 
Her heart released and carried 
Away
How long ago were we split 
From one to two
I’ve searched in crowded rooms
I’ve written the ink out of all my pens
I’ve prayed, begged, and wished on stars
The ones that burned into my soul
In that ever gaping hole
I’ve caught and killed butterflies 
I’ve bled and died alone 
I’ve been frozen and I’ve been stoned 
I’ve left lovers and led blind men
I lost children and wailed for you then
I was put in the hands of cruelty
And abandon when they tired of me
I handed myself up and over 
My heart clutched in the teeth 
Of an eagle
Searching to find you 
At last the garnet was delivered 
And I felt a jolt of life 
My twin soul
I am moved beyond control
And my heart weeps
Baptized in belief 
I love you 
Reborn and recycled 
I’ve played all my roles 
I walk into my final lifetime 
A last surrender 
To fill your soul with mine 
So we can leave behind our parts
To drown in the destiny 
Of a completed heart
