IT’S LIKE WHEN WE’RE HAPPY

When we say, “save yourself”
we kiss knowing too well
like when the skies are dark
there’s a sun above
What makes us happy is
when we see rain
and dark clouds
There’s a heart inside
the locked soul of life
And we are so happy
so like when the world fades away
as our fingers fill the
space between the need
of love and I really love
how you rock and roll me
and punk my soul oh dear
Your hair is the color of
night and your eyes the sun
And between the thoughts
a sweet peach upon a branch
that I want to taste if it
makes you happy

SUMMER SMELLS OF DEATH AND REBIRTH

AND    ponder the dried       once-tender
stems of bountiful beauty
of spreading       once-color     by
nature’s own heart    clinging to a dream
now faded into the soil
Breasts heave and men shudder by utter
extant fear//life with the margin of
once-unstained white
A few deleted unspoken
thoughts;dripping parts of broken dolls
sadly laying to sleep
spanked and put to keep
by shelves of dust
scolded hearts interrupt
: punished prisoners

DIAMOND-HEART COAL

my profoundly friend
in my daisy-eye
summer breath,
one black day —

who turned diamondHeart
into coal (it happened)
beneath an artist’s hand

where i forgave forgiveness
that i(my heart so such)
writes and paints skies
of fiend between immortal friends

WHEN ‘NOTHING’ SHARES

when ‘nothing’ shares
a ‘something’
what to expect,
a ‘something?’
the fullness of
wholesome wishes,
the falling star
of expectations?

we see the bursting
stabbing-throbbing
at sunset and love
the next day expecting

a something —
maybe nothing!

THE POOR BEGGAR

THE poor beggar called loneliness
no worse have I see —
tattered clothes and holes for sock
and outstretched arms —
not for money

but for love

WHEN?

The day my skies darkened
such lost a cavity in my soul
Immortal doings completely so
that living a drudgery act
When a spirit feels such truth
each tick-tock touches you
loss of love removes a piece
let my days be numbered do!

BROKEN ARROW

WHEN he says “I love you”
do you feel an angel’s breath
upon your feathered heart?

And when you walk hand-in-hand
do your feet glide upon heaven’s land
like when you dance in golden light?

I cannot partake in a poisoned arrow
that which I broke off from my heart
time has passed since we said goodbye

I used to say my soul was salvation
we use to play and sing in elation
those were times I keep inside of me

If he loves you like I loved you
I could not think of you as I do
Upon my hands I would fall to Earth

And the angels sing
a pardon for the heart
I can only say
my soul was my salvation
and we used to play
and sing in elation

And the angels sing
a pardon for our hearts
and the Earth takes a spin
just for us
and we can dance again
eternally at heaven’s gate

SWEET TEAR

SWEET tear save me
before you fall upon
empty skies…
Show me what
I am dying for
I am lonely
and spent
Life has
kissed me
and then left me…
to fend for myself
Give me some hope
if only to live
another day…

INCONGRUOUS MOMENTS

WISHING-well
— sometimes I do
unraveling dreams
— sometimes caught
between fingers-do
— slippery knew
notes running
across ivory key
minor pains
thrumming-heart
melancholy needs
dripping tears
there a light!
Golden tongue
— cursing darkness
honey-laced
Incongruous moments
–love them most!

A CURIOUS TRAGEDY (The Beauty Who Yearns)

PRIVILEGE suffer
my beautiful tragedy
Society of high
and low know not
such suffering
upon your soul
The beauty
— who hath no love
But mirage
of shadow-lust
What price
— you would pay
to find love
tender and true
No cost for you —
Such love
indeed too rare
