Drowning

IMG_7098blue

Pain doesn’t advance in degrees.

It’s a sudden deluge

overtaking you,

filling up your lungs

with every kind of darkness

and bile.

A hand rises from below,

feeble with exhaustion,

trying to find the strength

to battle;

drowning in what is,

seeking to swim

in what will be.

Dark and silent seas

Night falls

and with it the cloak I’ve kept

upon my thoughts, how tightly

I’ve bound them to me

until now

they stretch before me

dark and silent seas

I allow myself to sink

beneath the surface

stillness unbroken by movement

deliberate peace

meditation on thoughts

quieted in daylight

fluency of night giving consequence

to my voice

Dusk speaks

img_9208

Dusk speaks to me,

silent whispers

capturing my attention

like a finger dragged along

the spine.

My senses sharpen

as quiet takes precedence

over the lush

sounds of day.

Unbound and free

my mind becomes loud,

though I say not a word.

My fingers run

over the page

bringing forth

what lurks beneath

the placid surface,

with nary a ripple

to be seen until twilight

embraced me

and made me

her own.

Like air, I’ll rise

img_2817-1

Like air, I’ll rise

you cannot see me

yet I’m felt

like the wind that whispers your name

or touches you

unexpectedly

a cool caress upon your cheek

.

Like air, I’ll rise

and greet your lips

in a kiss

and like a snowflake

melt

from your heat

Of snow and ice

The sun dazzles, skipping

across the snow

windows frosted with ice

crystals, a frame for my eyes

the news blares of frozen doom

we remain bundled

furnace blasting

safety indoors

shadow of heat and smoke

from the chimney

dancing over unbroken snow

silent, bare trees

sentries immovable in the warmth

the sun, a pittance

a car travels down the street

slowly

the crunch of packed snow

breaking the silence, paralyzed

by the cold

One thing

img_6225-1

It was never just one thing

or one way

she loved

whether slow, a savoring taste

or urgent

an irrepressible hunger

every time her senses

came alive

wonder and passion

a palette to paint her days

mind, body, and soul speaking

at once

a language she was fluent in

she embraced all

the dark

the light

and in doing so

surrendered all

to the unknown

filled with the sense that she’d arrived

where she’d never been

but was already known

Reverie

Morning glimpsed 

behind a curtain

shaft of light

dancing

upon a headboard

dust motes

alighting

stillness disturbed

fingers slowly

moving

over warm skin

mine for yours

awakening

to thoughts, desire

curling around me

within, a band

tightening

every revolution

intensifying

every stroke

a lover’s wish

shattering restraint in

a rush of sound

a bitten lip

the lingering mark

of your possession
