Last

How long do I have you to myself this time till you slip right through me as if I was never even here Like some transient shadow that wilted beneath a saffron shaft How long have we got this time till you begin measuring my heart against scales of that insurmountable past? As if I must be sans feelings,... Continue Reading →

Bloodstains

Well, what a mood to content with today Stillness sits snug between your blue lips And so, even the Sun seems aggravating In this capital cold of November haze Stacking moments in temporal crypts Where newness holds a biting sting Its promise serves only to reignite old blaze Stepping once more close to its inviting...

Complex

What if we were as simple As some law of nature With run of the mill Constants involved Gilded with that Universal nomenclature Where variables sit still, Waiting to be solved An outcome that holds Against waves of Time Unlike the wax clinging to that melting taper We, the absolute Shine in something sublime With...

Amends

Did you know when you asked, I had let you in? It happened in the way I least expected Tried to stop, though could not plan the silly thing Made the call twice before it disconnected And after that it was simply free-falling A strange trajectory with an upward flow Caught in intangible current of tugging...

Winter

So this old tavern must have heard every story Every permutation of pain under the Sun Their’s does seem much too heavy to carry While mine, after all this time, feels like a loved one. Doesn’t even draw more than a drop anymore Though I tell it, I am used to it by now “There’s... Continue Reading →

Scam

And beneath this speckled roof that peeks Curiously at creasing paper catching fire Ancient ink warns in augural shrieks “If only burning verses would burn the desire” But these fools, they don’t bide by subtlety Declaring intentions at top of the lungs Ringing through sinew to bones so utterly Can’t seem to stand for biting...

Starless

I wonder what must it look like, a sky without the stars? Where once shone septillion flaming notions now just a pitch black ocean evincing scars? I wonder if it could, would it feel as lost as I do when silence seethes between us? Not willing to be the first to bury this fuss Still,... Continue Reading →

Apostasy

I wouldn’t know why their faiths never run out of reasons to burn bright Or maybe I do – And bright they do burn – For they all shine like festival of lights. Every scout at each turn drunk on strength in numbers, tells me  the only way to be is devout when cast beneath their... Continue Reading →

Mad

Look how you have changed me,  how you became my godsend.  I think I know better now. I think I look better too  - Under this muck of pretend -  Don’t think it a blame No, I made the incision myself  while the hot rasp of your voice played and you stayed in the background. ... Continue Reading →

Witchery

Memory falters in its steps I remember watching myself watch you Or maybe it was the other way around - unless your dream's been dreaming me anew and all that I heard and what came next  took roots in my head - watered and fed,  we grew Witching hour struck when you read your runes Paying...
