Breathing

You held on me so tightly
I felt I couldn’t breathe
All that I could focus on
was seeking a reprieve
When I finally left you
I quickly came undone
Won’t you come and find me
I fear I may succumb

Lifes disguises

 

camo stone

I put on life’s disguises
always trying to blend in
With photographs and ModPodge
I put on my daily skin
I reign in my emotions
become one with the crowd
Wishing I were strong enough
to let myself stand out

Sorbet Sunrises

DSCF4062

Sorbet painted sunrise
painted in the sky
palette made of berries
paints to please the eyes
Touch them with the finger
spread them on the lips
raspberries and blueberries
grapes and tangerines
My eye beholds the wonder
of sunrise savored on my lips

Sunrise splendor

Fire on the horizon
flames shooting through the sky
blinding golds and oranges
burning in my eyes
Smokeless flames of color
rising from the earth
Silhouettes of nature
reflected on the ore
blinded by this splendor
I can behold no more
gone as quickly as it started
replaced by golden orb

Tangles

You spew so many falsehoods
they tangle on your tongue
I fear that someday you will choke to death
on one of your untruths

Starlit sky

Carry me outside into the starlit darkened sky
set me down upon my feet
and I will turn around
I’ll gaze once more upon your face
Blow your tears away
with gentle winded breath
I’ll turn and walk into the night
leaving nothing here remiss
