Take The Wild

Perhaps I never should have wandered here
unprepared
for the heartache of your lusting sneaky soul,
tangling me
in suffocating confusion;
I sought the sunlight
through your wicked shadow;
my placement here confounds
your cruel control;
this is not your place
it is mine;
your insatiable effort
to change me
fails
within the fire
of my sunset.

Under The Blood Moon

Eclipsed,
the moon loses itself
and fades into orange,
molested by the sun's overbearing light,
on the far side from me;
Everyone loves the Blood Moon.

But I just want the moon back,
I want to know it is there,
when I look up ~
shining glowing whitely
against the night sky
or hovering softly
with the morning's first breath,
I want to know it is there,
whether or not I look up ~
as familiar as your face in the window.

Everyone else loves the Blood Moon.

Take Out Your Ship

Take out your ship
let out your sail
raise your anchor
and sail away ~
though storms be brewing
take out your ship ~
when the sea is black
when the horizon's gone
the stars will guide you
the winds will lead you
the waves will lift you
and carry you home ~
for home will find you
when your journey's done.

Take out your ship
let out your sail
raise your anchor
and sail away.

Mid-day Poem

Dreams that woke me
like fresh rust
cutting through
three o'clock in the morning
harsh as a knife
through darkness and flesh
into my heart
leaving a tepid scar
now send me fleeing
running towards them
yearning
for their cruel embrace.

Love's hanging heavy now
but still
cleaner than my heart;
crisp
like burnt toast.
