drought

You were a steady Rain
I did not mind
I danced in it, I thrived in it
I scooped you into my hands and smiled because
I love the Rain and I love you.
You were a drizzle at first, a sprinkle of droplets on my windshield that
I was unsure if I should wipe away, but then you filled my vision,
you pounded on the glass and oh, I was lost in you, Rain, and I thought you were lost too
until the strong beat of your downpour grew weaker and soon what was a hurricane
was a soft pitter-patter that drove me insane
with desire for the tsunami that was your love I didn’t quite appreciate
damn I miss that tidal wave of ecstacy from being with you, Rain
I guess you forgot about me too, Rain, because you were nowhere to be seen
not in puddles or rain clouds or in my dreams

And it was quiet, Rain, so quiet
I missed your raptaptapping and your sweet embrace
I wanted you, Rain, I wanted to taste the history we had,
I wanted to feel those Rain dances on my lips
and the dew on my ankles from that first time we kissed but
you were nowhere to be seen, Rain,
not in puddles or rain clouds or in my dreams.

I made my own rain, Rain, when yours dried up
I drowned in it, Rain, I drowned in our lost love
I soaked it up like a sponge
The world was barren and hot and unforgiving
and you, Rain, found other girls that like dancing.

What felt like “drown”
was a drought
a dustbowl, empty, desert
you were not my rain to keep
you were gone, Rain, where’d you go?
Rain, can’t we be friends?
I love you, Rain,
come again, Rain,
come again.

I remember how it felt to see those bursts of light. I was in a daze, those freckles of colors splattered against the lonely night. I felt endless. I kept thinking that one day when I was bigger, I could collect those tiny flickers and stuff them in my pockets, saving them for moonless nights, and for sad nights.

I got bigger, and I couldn’t catch those sudden stars. They bloomed out before my eyes, and I realized that I was too small still. Still I tried again to capture the booming lights in the sky, and eventually I tried to keep the moon. I wanted that lovely moon, to hold it hostage and talk to on those sad nights. I weeped on moonless nights.

Now I am much bigger, and I weep every night. The moon is of no condolence; the fire works I grew to hate for their atrocious loudness. I am much bigger now, and these things lack their youthful magic. I have had years of explanations; I have known their patterns, their existence. Now I close the curtains on them, and weep into my pillow for life’s tragedies.

hundred

You are an oak tree sturdy and worn
scuffed up at the edges and yet

you are strong arms and safety
when the monsters come to play
and I am feeling naive again

I have done these things a hundred times
You have done them a hundred years.

porter

I slip into insanity, feel it’s sleekness on my skin
It feels so new, but I’ve worn it before-
On the happy hours and sad nights when
beer is my lover and we fall asleep together,
knowing he’ll be gone tomorrow morning-
I think I’ll wear it out today,
My soft satin insanity.

want

To crave is such a distinguished feeling from other emotions. With sadness and happiness, it’s temporary. We can “feed” our feelings and change them. But to want something, well….

It’s like a hunger that never wanes.

distributor

Handing out fate at the end of the line
So far behind everyone else
Can’t help but wonder about the destinies left over
what’ll it be this time?
what’ll it be this time?

cathedral

I keep thinking about how I can’t make you love me.
That I won’t wear the white dress to your wedding and see you on the other side of the aisle.
Or videotape your children’s Christmas mornings.
Or give you all the greek olives in my salad, since you love them and I don’t.
I can’t make you stay, I can’t make this work.
I can’t make you love me if you won’t.

chat

How do I even begin a conversation with you? We’re so alike, so in love, and so completely different that I feel like the weather is all we share.

This first date of ours will be awkward, cute, and confusing as balls.
Just like you.

separate

I am conflicted.
I am living two lives consecutively.

A Lifetime and a Lifetime.
They never agree,
And each doesn’t like the other;
How can this be
If they have the same mother?

alibi

Give me a reason,
Any alibi will do,
to make me come back
and suffer along side you
like I always do.
Fuck.

sliver

Scars don’t hurt like they began.
There’s nothing physical to them,
The agony is purely mental-
A scary story told gentle.

So then, tell me?
Why do I suffer so
When I see you pass me by
If my heart has long been dead to love?

balloons

My eyes grow,
panicked breaths
my lungs are swollen balloons
“Is this happening?”, I ask myself
“Whattayasay?”, you ask myself
thinkthinkthinkthink
a foot tapping,
you put your hand in mine
and my heart pauses and
my mind pauses and
the world pauses for us
and my chest explodes
“YES! YES! YES! YES!”

torch

I want to keep you safe, trap you in my arms,
here there’s no escape.
here there is no harm
I’ll lock your fragile heart up in a tomb,
birth your sweet memory from the womb
and on we’ll go, into the sun, into the sun,
set us on fire and hide the water
our doings are undone.

swing

I can see you there, locked up in your mind
you are a shell
sitting on a swing
going through the motions
grieving
for your lost youth, your lost love
who is laying six feet under
pray tell, where is your narcissism now.
old beauty?

weave

The rough feel of
twine looped through her calloused hands
strong from work
braiding the strands
using memorized maps
patterns to the art
she adds hollowed shells
and sharks tooth
the beads of glass the white man gave them
when ivory was rare
and then it is done
and she wraps it around her thin neck
her mad horse eyes
like fire from an indian sun.

generator

You give me energy with your
lighthouse eyes
send sparks like a livewire
into my life
I don’t miss you anymore,
but I don’t miss you anyless
Since you strode through the door
my hearts been a mess
I needed you here, can’t you see
to live beside me in a house of cards
we’d built from grief
But you stepped across the yard
and into the car
And deserted me here
to be contempt with my loneliness

I just want to change the world one word at a time.

balloon

She was a beacon, stars shone through her and reflected off of the sun’s bright eyes. She turned her face to the blue overhead and blinded herself with the fierce rays illuminating her, and drifted into open arms. She wanted to float in that in-between of the atmosphere, dance in the grass-washed dew that seemed to hover in the air, and she drank the sweetness of the sky as she gazed at clouds, before she released the red balloon and watched it fly to heaven, up up up and away. It was just a dot, growing smaller, fighting the wind, until it was no more. She closed her eyes and dreamed of the kaleidoscope around her.

ants

A slow fever moving through her makes her antsy. The delirium? No, no, it couldn’t be that. He was safe! He was cured from love! She would be too, soon. There was no harm in meeting him that night. Maybe he wasn’t flirting, he could have just played nice to her obvious attraction to him.
Oh god, she thought, was it obvious? Please let him not know.
Please let him be Cured.
She couldn’t afford to fall in love when her vaccination is so near.

festival

A shock of brisk wind blew past her, danced in her hair, brushed her cheek.
She paraded through the crowd, searching for Alec.
He was here, he was here, but all the masks hid their faces, and she was lost.
She stopped, twirled around and screamed for him.

sacred

Handling me so delicately,
With lace and chains
You’re a whore.
Lost my virginity again
Spilled coffee stained shirts
You’re new, you’re fresh,
you’re a slut.

estate

I hate how, once you’re all liver spots and sadness, when you’ve aged 80 years and your lover has gone and left the world, you’re left to leave all of your possessions, all of those 80 years of memories, in some crappy estate sale on the side of the road.

desert

you wrecked me like a forrest fire that day.
you swept my heart under the rug and
shovelled me six feet under.
so heres to you, for making the girl cry even harder.
you said dont sweat it,
but im in a sauna in the summer
you said youre sorry, but necklaces dont cut it
like my glare when i saw you with her, on her.
youre such a liar i cant believe i didnt see it sooner
i fucking hate you, you two faced stoner
i ever met your mom and father
doesnt matter.
youre a cheater
an emotional beater and deciever
youre a loser,
but i can finally say its over.

panorama

The view from over here is great, what with you being over there. Quite the space provided, a nice rural place by myself. How kind of you to leave me behind.

blemish

Your face is unblemished,
but the makeup you wear
covers the scars you’ve
claimed through your battles
and the baggage you’ve carried
has weighted your shoulders to
a sad slump
and you finally stagger to your
knees from the pressure
of life
and that last second, your last second
will be spent wishing of a better ending
to your pathetic and exhausted
existence.

princess

Fuck my so called savior,
You caused me to sleep-
You confined my heart to the tower-
You we’re the apple of my eye,
But now you’ve gone and poisoned it.
Left my petals smashed on the floor,
Could’ve at least granted my wish.
You said you’d help me to escape,
Form my own steps on new soil,
But I don’t believe in fate
Or a whole new world.

view

God, what a beautiful view.
The snow fell like a ballet dancer, the strength of the wind sweeping it away, up and off of the ground, quiet and delicate and lace, but loud in it’s own way. I didn’t get it, I never would.
Why am I stuck here wondering about next week’s deadlines and what I’ll eat for breakfast and when I have that dentist appointment?
I wanted to float, to dance in that snow.
I want to breathe in the tall pines and morph into their rich mahogany, that Cherry Coke bark.
“Fisher! Can you come in and watch Mason for a few hours, I got called in, a Labrador got hit by a pick up.”
Reality pulled me back in my mom’s rushed voice.

obey

She was sick of the torment. She wanted whatever was on the other side of that rickety heart fence.
She was gonna be her own authority.

stable

Stability is the dream of all slackers and the torment of the formidable.
