My Wild Angel

  

I am listening to all of our 

old jams

…thinking of you

Beastie Boys and 

Smashing Pumpkins 

Time does not fly 

…it is dangling on the edge of our bedroom window 

Watching us when we were kids 

Eddie Vedder and white tees 

And rebels just wanna have fun 

…so we did 

Now all my heart does is playback our memories 

Converse and coffee 

Hooked on the repeat

Smoke from your cigarette butts

Drawing a mirror 

around my face

Where you would always grin 

and say 

“Everything will be ok”

Even with the odds trimming the life from your face 

Honestly, without you here 

That hole in my gut, reappeared 

So be my wild angel 

And I will be your little rebel

Be my wild angel

Hold me and whisper…

Anything 

Scream our songs through the wind

Hit me with the beats like a best friend 

I love you and there is no end

Be my wild angel

Lead me into heaven

…So we can be kids again 

  

 


Twilight of Intrigue 

  
Do you see

The amigos of three 

Brushing upon the twilight of intrigue

The starry night 

Gazing in our eyes

Comprised of moments 

Later whispered as memories 

Carried on the tail end of time

“Remember when it was you and I

In the silence of life”

Love, solace and a hopeful gleam

Brushing upon

The twilight of intrigue 

  

Apologies from the second floor. 

  

no, no, no, no!
I am cement on my carpet
balled up on the floor
asphyxiating on memories
of me
of you
I wonder what she thinks…
the lady underneath
the slender division
…of our apartments
downstairs soon to flood
corroding her rocking chair
My relentless tears
leak through conjoining cracks
Oh the afghan of happiness                          she thought she had back..

  

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 



Crazy and Mischief (a duet with the lovely Lisa)

Do not enter…
Yet we always found a way
Bonded at the hips like sisters
Breaking the locks or leaping over
The seeds of adventure blossomed when we were together

Excitedly running out of the back door
Yelling at my folks I’ll be home by twelve
Driving in your car as fast as we could
Laughing out loud as the music blared
We had hope in each other when the world crushed us down

Escaping bullshit on the weekends
Getting the heck out of this lame town
We were a duet of crazy mischief, no one could strap us down. Bumming smokes from random strangers Getting high from just being together

Dancing all night; never wanting to drive back home
Always lost in endless conversations
Time dissipated between our souls
A world of our very own making
Nothing could keep one from the other
I was her and she was me, against the world in our own harmony…

********************************
I worked with Lisa from Underground Energy for this piece. She is super talented and exudes a love and energy that feels like the glowing sun. She’s adopted me as a sister and I’m on cloud nine today! You will be too when you read this beautiful sunshines daily magic! Thank you Lisa❤️

Criminal

Mugshots

Patterned against my white walls like

The gunshots

You patterned into my permeable soul

Behaving like such a hotshot

When I’m the one who harpooned you

With one shot

Lovers in lust couldn’t stop

Until you belittled me with

Lies and small talk

Clarity leaked out and

Pushed me on top

Packing all of our memories in a box

I used to think they were pictures

But now I see it plainly

A criminal and his mugshots
