MOMENTS AND MADNESS


MOMENTS AND MADNESS

 Clammy icicles melt down my back,

My body quivers with revulsion.

Rotted, crooked breath, lash my countenance.

Moist malleable clamps embracing the spire,

Misshapen tusks jut from the firmament.

Soothing balm sets the rod afire.

Foaming water deafens the laughter.

Tumble into darkness.

Innocence lost, diatribe abounds.

THE SAD BELONGS TO ME


THE SAD BELONGS TO ME

A leaf

Dried, brown and cracked

Drifting upon the wind

Away from the place I’ve known

The place of my birth

The twisting causeways of a tropical existence

Into a cold, harsh land

An alien realm entombed with pale and colourful monikers

Some dry and frail, twirling in a like gale

Others vibrant, vengeful, ruthlessly driving the torrent

With every twist and turn I find my way

Through the currents that guide me

To the place of their choosing

Herding me into servitude with their appealing lures,

Their misguided tows

Where they say I should be for soulless bliss

But I control my destiny

I will not be enslaved

Beginning the journey…warm, balmy…promise

Owned by another

But the end belongs to me, it is of my choosing

I drift on the wind

I love this wind

The wind that carries this dusty, leaf

TIMELESS RESONANCE


TIMELESS RESONANCE

I love it when you come

It’s wet and wild

Luminous and warm, sometimes…cooler

But always it’s loud and forceful

The way you lather my back

Makes me shiver with anticipation

I lose myself in your embrace

Your cling is strong, your scent…intoxicating

There are complaints,

But I don’t care,

They have no appreciation for your beauty

Your twisted marvels embrace my serenity

I long to see your forked flares ignite my pastures

And dance across my meadow

Hear your fire and flourish in your rumble

When you leave, my petals drip from your charisma

And in the distance, your echo reverberates in my soul
