autumn

She wanted an autumnal dress
To wear with her golden slippers
And crimson smile
She wanted to feel like the leaves
were the wisps of hair that curled around her cheek
She thought she was a season
Until winter came

silk

Like the worms spinning their fine threads to create something even more beautiful you spin your words around my heart. They slip around the form of my heart, a kiss with each caress.

boiling

I am stumped. Well and truly stumped. The cliché, the water on the hope. Bubbling, fizzing… effervesence… boiling from 1* to 100*, are we so narrow minded that we think only water boils. I breathe the same air as scientests, you do too, surely we think of metals, of gases and all the elements of the world, not fire,water,air but lithium, sodium, potassium.

root

The root of the equation
Never made a blind bit of sense
When love decided not to add
subract or multiply
I stared at the equals sign
And questioned what next?

The root of the equation
Never makes sense
Neither does the root of
Life.

mean

What does it all mean, this world, this life. The people who say I love you, who say I hate you. What does it mean when you look at the sky, gaze at the stars and feel so alone. What does it mean when we say yesterday is the past, today is the present and tomorrow, tomorrow is the future

cells

dividing, multiplying
Hospital scenes and people crying
Tears that fall
Parents to call
Hearts sighing
Thanks for trying.

predict

I want to read your palm
Predict our future and see that our roads intwine
I want to look in your eyes
And see through the years
See the tears
See us cry
I want to know what’s around that corner
So that I won’t miss any chance
To remind you how much you mean.

held

I caught a whisper
Held it in the plam of my hand
Watched it flutter
Delicate and Opaque
Not weighing a feather or a whisp of air
And then
When I had enjoyed its beauty
As if it knew
It awakened and flew away

belief

We were the same in every respect. We danced to the same music. Laughed at the same words. We walked together, breathed together, talked together. And often he wondered why? Why I was too afraid to take that next step? Take the plunge? But I shook my head, sighed, the one thing we didn’t share, was a belief in love.

wonder

Sometimes I look at the sun
Falling down behind the mountain
I think about the lands below
the orange deserts
The jaded jungles
And I wonder
I wonder what the people
Down there think
As the sun begins to illuminate the planet they know
And I don’t.

smile

one smile can hide a multitude
it can mask
A disaster just waiting to happen
I tell you to smile
Smile like you mean it
But it’s hard
It’s so goddamn hard
to believe a smile
that lacks in feeling

train

Long thin slender body
A puff of smoke
Polluting the air
Polluting the beauty
You chug through the countryside
Like a knife through my heart
Cold, clinical, mechanical
No one said it was natural.

embraced

She opened her arms to the world. Opened her eyes. She saw the blood orange sun and thought of it waking the world below. She saw the butterflies living their life, a day, just a day. She saw the apples grow red like the cheeks of a blossiming girl. She saw her life and held it tight.

funeral

I wonder will he be there
At my funeral
Will he cry
His blue eyes red
His frame weak as it is lean
Will he fold his strong arms
apoligeticly,unknowingly
Or will he sit at the back
Quietly
Pretending once again
That he doesn’t really care.

rise

Rise and Shine early birds
Every morning
the same old words.
The early bird catches the worm
I stay in bed
I’ll never learn.

teacher

You’re going to have to be patient. You’re going to have to teach me. Teach me first to trust. Teach me the meaning of love. These concepts are not tangible to me. I cannot see them. I cannot feel them. You need to teach me how to live. Then I can learn to love you.

painted

You go live my life
While I paint my nails
and obstrustive red
to distract from the pain
Of you
your long lean form
stumbling into the lime light
Blinking
Live my life
I’ll wait behind
With my painted nails
And guide you on.

chalkboard

That scratching shaking feeling that makes your cringe.
Thinking about nails dragging themselves down the bored.
Merely to irritate
Merely to frustrate
White lines and numbers
Pi is only a number
not intended to frustrate

radio

Video killed the radio star,
Apparently.
I never listen
To the radio or to the words
Of any song.
Only the thoughts of other people

limo

Sparkle sparkle
the coins that clink
In her paper cup
why does one have so much
When she has so few
The limo driver didn’t stop
didn’t dull the sparkle
Just drove
Right by
