Patty Cake’s Revenge

November 1, 2013 § Leave a comment

Patty Cake
Fuck Pink
Pink fucked Patty
and left her broken
left her all alone
Patty, sweet Patty
a girl of angel food cake
so bright eyed and innocent
now dulled by pain
Pink was her poison
tormenting her as a child
Pink killed the smile
that radiated from within
Pink smiled at her
while whispering to Pink2 and Pink3
plotting their next game
where Patty was the piece
and they made the rules
Pink pricked Patty with her thorns
testing her resolve
but Patty so sweet
smiled and went on
as thistles grew around her heart
Pink tapped her on the shoulder
then left her all alone
with the cream tiled walls
pressed to Patty’s cheek
drinking in her tears
but sweet Patty
smiled and went on
her heart encased by a briar patch
Pink 1, Pink 2 and Pink 3
made Patty’s life hell
jealous of Patty’s white wings
they clipped them slowly away
biting them when Patty slept over
a veiled friendship
soon the wings
were mere bumps on Patty’s shoulders
but sweet Patty
smiled…and went on…
Her heart protected…forever.

Carry On, Carry On

Earth Redeemed

Talking mutes is what we are

Afraid to utter against the pain

The talons gripping our hearts in fear

Pricking to remind us we are here

Tricking us into thinking,

This is feeling

Our blooming, glorious pain

Numbed to life

Only to be pricked again


In some there’s the feeling…

A warm glow growing

Thawing the claw


FEAR

The byproduct of living


In a cruel and beautiful world

So too, the world revolves mute

Fear of change, fear of not changing right

Fear of loving, fear of not being loved right

Unaware, the world’s evolved

To feel the warmth,

Then the glow

Yet, the fate of this world

Remains an untapped potential

So carry on, carry on and let it be


Until we live into a world,


Of renaissance dreams

Sunrise Promise

I am not disillusioned when it comes to you

I know the price of being open

My wholeheartedness only matched

By the potential of being broken

 

Yet I journey on

Knowing each moment

Each twist, each turn

Each breath

I choose

 

I chose you

I chose this path

This journey

Before twilight had faded

And born a new day

 

Bringing the promise of a new beginning

The past bid adieu

Sitting here I wait, spinning my rhyme

Heart phrases strung for you

 

No, I am not disillusioned

I know what may not be

As it never was

Any more than you and me

 

A sunrise promise

That has set it’s own path

Comforted in knowing

That this too shall pass

Courting a Silhouette

August 20, 2013 § 2 Comments

Whispy marionette

You shape shifter

Time drifter

World traveler

Sans form

A mirage of soul

Thinly veiled memory

Your shades and shadows

Carrying me out to sea

Gentle ebb and flow

Distilled in violent haste

My heart scribes ink

Finding oasis on this page

Is there sense in loving you?

This dalliance—

Of fated marionettes?

Clipping my strings

I fall from Grace

For Loving you…

Is like Courting a Silhouette

Anything But That

Rose heart glasses

I love you

you know, I love you

you exclaim

as if the bittersweet refrain

will quiet my lonesome fears

quench the painful tears

what a beautiful dream

retro-fitted reality

opening my eyes

to infinite worlds

dotted lines

between you and me

but still,

in knowing your touch

your inner being

to give me anything

anything but that

-is to thieve the last breath

of the living.

To Wander and Wonder

Marseille, France

Marseille, France

 

Why do I live to Wander?

Why do I live to Wonder?

 

Maybe I want to see myself in the streams

The glassy ocean

The fallen trees

High on the continental divide,

In Buddha

In Krishna

In the Holy Grail

In Lak’ech,

The lips of a mother

The sigh of a father

The strength of a brother

The embrace of a sister

The dance of a lover

The smile of a friend

The compassion of a stranger

A child’s joy,

In the golden grain while it sways in the wind

The moon’s face

The sun’s grace,

Anyplace

Any of you

In this endless wake of today

I Wander and Wonder
