Patience 

  
I have been through unsightly storms and flung by your wild sea
I longed to, just for a time…
Remain dry 
But this, my friends, is an uncontrollable life 
The water is not ready …to stop rushing
So I say, “I am done running!”
I cannot place my palm to the wind 

…redirecting it 

Nor my body to the ocean

And pretend…not to be absorbed by it 

You hold my feet down so I may withstand it! 

You flood my graffiti heart

so I may be born again 

A reformed spirit

Your blood makes me permanent!

If I yell at the rain and with a heated temper question it
My tree will only wither …in stubborn ignorance 

Choosing love instead, 

I bathe in your rawness!

I bury my will into the unknown

Graciously taming my patience.

Bird of Prey 

  

I’m the elusive creature 

Now you see me
Now you don’t 
You thought you caught me
But your net remains empty
I’ve learned this lesson before
Prisoner of war
The cult following 
Will meet and fall in love 
Then turn into acts disappearing 
My saliva scatters from your ego
Search and search 
But you’ll never track me again
Go figure

Undercover 



You squirm undercover 

Promising both sides it’s for the grander picture 

But what say you as a justification 

For all the hearts you break along the way

Cruelest jest – you prey on spirits like a game 

And the greater scheme?

Cannot be completed through demise and destruction 

On this side we build with wholeness and love 

So you should just go

Your tricks are exposed

Your covers been blown 

Your bidding for a brighter future will lose its tact and pull

As karma spreads like wildfire and you reap what you’ve sewn 



The Blade of Lonely 





Closeness, like a needle on a string 

When will it mend 
When will it maim 
Ripping hard into temptation 
The lure of loves injection 
The camoflaughed virus within the vaccine 
Infected veins now running weak 
The wandering soul
The hawk eyes of the bird
To entrap her life
The craving for company 
Creates a naive ignorance 
So I coat myself with armor
A preference of protection over comfort 
I walk with my claws out
A warrior who has learned 
It’s best not to hold the earnest hand
God and I may be head to head
I’m a stubborn daughter 
With defenses up
But as my life completes its cycle
He’s the only one who’s never left
These bones of alone 
Are loaded with fire, not fragility
Forgive me Father 
But I’ll swing like a bat
And I won’t miss
The one who dare come near me
Adorned with the foul fragrance
Of false promises 

Undressed

IMG_0205-1

We are undressed
As they all rush by
They do not see us
With their distracted eyes
Busy chasing a time that flies
But we stand at attention
You and I
A broken resurrection
Mind and bodies offered up for persecution
Me and you
Arrive in fragments
Jilted from all we’ve been through
Are you real?
Perhaps I’m hallucinating
To be soul to soul…
You and me
Complexions of obscurity
Yet I feel your presence
Undressed upon a swarming street
You
are the only one I see

Bonds and Barricades

IMG_0180-0

Bonds and Barricades
Formatted between us
As we swing inside our separate cages
Battling the internal wars that wage
Splicing the dice that has been thrown
For once in our favor
Yet we dissect it at every angle
Our first instinct of behavior
For so long we’ve lived as solo survivors
Then one day
We happened upon each other
I stumbled into your homegrown auxiliary shelter
Buried in the whiteness of winter
Stuck like snow
Addicted to your bones
Fickle fears feed our minds
So engaged, yet wounded from a past life
Of feeling estranged
Loners in a land of evidence
Losing the facts within our own hands
Accustomed to the give and sway
Attached to being left in the fray
I’m longing to dive from my cage
I’m longing to come with you and stay
If our scar tissue is all that remains
Let us blend this resistance
Before we kiss the grave

Sacred

IMG_0147

Beyond the ruins
Of my exasperated soul
I curl into a tiny ball
A camouflaged creature
Just another broken piece
Through the haze
Of our galaxies and Milkyway
You’ve cradled my face
You reappear
Unafraid of loving
A tattered girl
I’m trembling for your closeness
You curl into my brokenness
Your words twinkle my bleakness
I know you say
You’re no angel
Yet your spirit is saving me
For a future
That is, to be continued…

Blackbird

IMG_0093

Blackbird
Your sweet soul
Is seeping through
Filling my pale skin
With broken dreams
Incapable of a remedy
Yet my soft hands run wild
With your untamed melody
To bring you a new beauty
Blowing abrasions to the wind
Settling your scars
With my pure kiss
Blackbird
You may fearfully fly
Away
Yet I will be here waiting
With loves compassion
Throughout the night
And all my days

To you, dear

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

I need you

i need you

I need you

To wash my body with your tears
I need you
To behold my vulnerability
As I deliver it and care for yours
so delicately
I need you to be a true friend
Let’s become a living definition
Of souls bonded in existence
I need you
To take this cigarette
And share it with me
While we stay up all night
With the moon at our feet
I need you
To walk this jagged edge with me
To revel openly
To love me silently
To trust intuitively
That fear is only a mockery
A jest to prevent your bravery
I won’t betray the secrecy
I’m offering my fragility
To a worth I see in your soliloquy
I am what you believe of me
Through shifting times
And changing skies
I offer this truth
I know you need me
Just as
I need you
