i think, and I’m sure you might
want me to wander about the night
swim shallow yet walk heavy under
dark and bright
pulling by your hand
your entire self squeezing me
with all your might.
breathing heavy, on my back
head on head watching above
a starry runway of endless constellations
a concerto of love.
may i watch your eyes,
as the sun comes up to rise?
i stand still, viewing the sight to see
by no will, does the city cease to be
like a quill, the cursive of the sunset,
is drawn atop the skyline like a bold silhouette .
colours bleed, saturates the clouds and sky,
cold wind will lead, bites like a breath and tears the eye,
a sound carried, of voices and laughter from budding youth,
is heard amongst the forests and fields,
echoing the truth.
she said to me
Sunday is the day,
Cowardly in it’s way.
the arms I once supported my hands with,
afloat at my side.
limp to the ends of my fingertips,
almost motionless i remain sustained.
surrounded by falling lights,
embers dancing to their death.
an ambient sound so soft and so distant,
softly urging me to float upward.
more than a moment i was held still.
then a faint melody sparked inside my core,
spreading through my body, igniting every hair.
warming me with the growing of a deep hum,
a hum that calls me home.
lifted from a dark surrounding, i understood colour.
warm and cold lights whizzing past me like traffic,
above and evermore.
i’m getting faster as I go, defeating the denotation to flight.
I feel myself begin to cry.
It feels lovely to sob,
for i’d never wish it be, if it were not my ascent,
to be with you once again.
i feel stirred inside.
every time I do something,
i feel stirred.
is it my perfectly imperfect mixture
between spoiled cream
and lumps of unbroken brown sugar
sitting dormant at the bottom of me?
do you sip too quickly and do i burn your tongue?
shall i hold mine?
roll up and win.
win me over,
spill me on your shirt
and while you’re at it
pour me out entirely into pieces
so that i will remain a mere cold shade of concrete
and no longer
my dear, how softly,
how you breathed into my chest,
i felt warm that night .
expect me to be playing and singing this
