• when we see
    reality
    for what it is-
    loyalists lying
    to themselves
    and everyone
    asleep to wars
    worlds away
    weeping widows
    wait for words
    of hope

    Empathy-
    the illuminated veil

  • katiekieran commented on the post, wagon 11 months ago

    fell off again
    in $3500 increments
    scattered like stardust
    across a national park
    moonscape
    but we all know
    there’s no beauty
    in self inflicted failure

  • katiekieran commented on the post, greens 11 months, 4 weeks ago

    goddesses of grandeur
    glowing gold in
    forgotten fields of
    harvested ideals
    at once vibrant and
    subtle
    alive but
    dying

  • katiekieran commented on the post, tea 1 year, 3 months ago

    water weight
    and endless
    refills
    Everything
    is a science
    if you look

    below
    the surface
    show

  • life
    became
    30 minute increments
    of what needs to be
    what is, and isn’t
    always another call
    or payment
    or chore

    left all for me-
    Saturn’s whore

  • pure but misguided
    love-
    if one sided

  • katiekieran commented on the post, casual 2 years, 9 months ago

    standing in lines
    drawn with methodical hands
    droves of hoards of
    mindless sunday
    vacantly setting
    another place at the table
    to eat
    to watch
    to say
    to sleep
    awake and then again
    casually pretending to know
    the point

  • katiekieran commented on the post, olive 2 years, 11 months ago

    taut and tan
    the island glow
    of foreign bodies
    haunt and hate
    the dowdy imperfections
    i carry like luggage
    always traveling
    never vacationing

  • katiekieran commented on the post, deity 3 years ago

    long lines
    of broken thoughts turned to theories
    turned to thinking
    thoughts
    things are never
    and always
    what they seem
    when seeming
    is all
    we see

  • so much
    never enough
    wanting makes fools
    of feelings
    yet still deceives
    who believes
    that things
    will bring
    fulfilling

  • katiekieran commented on the post, possible 3 years, 2 months ago

    could be
    that we
    were meant to be
    together
    endlessly
    love was a stranger I thought I knew
    until there was you
    until there was you

  • katiekieran commented on the post, dough 3 years, 2 months ago

    thick clay flesh
    pouring out through
    virgin veils
    desirous of fatty foods
    indulgences innate
    in all
    the constant battle
    between
    bone and binge

  • katiekieran commented on the post, offering 4 years, 5 months ago

    a burnt offering
    too little
    too late
    you can’t deny
    who you are
    and expect to be
    forgiven
    i’m sorry
    i’m not sorry
    for the first time
    free
    from obligation of
    guilt

  • katiekieran commented on the post, pressing 4 years, 5 months ago

    pressing deadlines
    aloof as always
    expecting reliability
    that never comes
    it never rains
    when the cold sets in
    the snow never comes
    either

  • katiekieran commented on the post, pressing 4 years, 5 months ago

    pressing against me
    lingering lips and
    language
    encouraging me
    to bloom
    fruit
    oft forgotten
    yet ripe all the same
    coming alive and undone
    professing your name

  • katiekieran commented on the post, rented 4 years, 5 months ago

    i rented a place
    below the space
    where a perfect home existed
    where i hardly did
    anything more than wonder
    where we were
    going, going
    gone
    until alone
    I finally owned
    the perfect home
    a place to hang
    my happy heart

  • katiekieran commented on the post, glowing 4 years, 9 months ago

    ambient
    and glowing
    a face to fill
    the sky
    with magic
    spells cast
    for dreams to last
    of you

  • katiekieran commented on the post, brushed 4 years, 9 months ago

    tangles brushed and tamed
    the girl from anonymous
    dreams
    ponies manes
    and fat fingers
    pull the cosmic
    fabric
    astray

  • katiekieran commented on the post, sinking 4 years, 10 months ago

    sinking into sailing
    ships at sea
    never a time
    when you loved
    me
    alas the horizon shakes
    in pearly pieces
    the shoreline seeps
    just past places of
    reckoning

  • katiekieran commented on the post, starry 4 years, 10 months ago

    your starry eyes
    did shame those skies
    above the hallowed places
    where we were two
    who fell into
    a maze of blazing
    graces
