Poem: Nothing

you dangerously ask me
“what are you thinking?”

I simply reply
“nothing.”
scowling red lines
split your lips as
you spit pointed words
“liar! what
are you really thinking?”

And I say softly
“really – nothing.”
you flail your arms
your frustration spilling,
“why won’t you tell me!”

I take your hands
pull you close
“I did tell you.
I am thinking:
of nothing
and the hunger:
of nothing.
I am thinking
of naked
raw nothing.

I am hungry for
your nothing
and the feeling
of nothing
the delirious heat
of nothing
I am thinking how
it would feel to fill
your nothing with me…”

Our mouths meet
feed on nothing
set flame to nothing
until we tumble
igniting naked
sweet something
from nothing.

Poem: Sliced

perfectly precisely thin line
etched deeply neatly into my skin
you surgically know how far to draw
your words creating filet d’homme.

 

Poem: Hoard

down here in the darkness
i keep my great treasures
hidden in mustiness
memories stored away
preserving fading youth
just for some other day

don’t look here
don’t you tell
this is mine
it is all
that I have
remaining.

Poem: Be

I wrote this nearly two years ago – and you know what it is one of the more awesome things I have ever written! So here for an encore read is the Poem: Be

I
be
me

leaf
be
leaf
be
life
belief

be lithe
be light
be right
be wrong

be all
day long
be along
and still
belong

be one
be two
be free
be you
be us

belay
be lead
bleed
bled

don’t let it get
inside your head

be up
be down
be square
be round

bee
a be
bee
buzz
away

life is lived
until we’re dead
be alive
be unafraid
be whatever
you want today

just be
and be
and be
some more
then be away
so happily
on your way
to being free.

Poem: Impact

the writer of words
can never tell
the reader of words
what she must think;

the writer of words
can only explain
that imagined essence
of he himself
and not the ripples
he leaves
seeping behind
carelessly marking
his passing…
