I miss you

Cheeks stained / Wet with weeping / I miss / All that you are / I sit and I wait / For the warmth / of your embrace / swallow me whole …

I will go gentle into that good night

I will go gentle into that good night / I will not rage against but embrace the dying of the light / I will tip toe secretly up to the slip…

I set myself free

I open my purse and / I throw my pennies / Out / Below the surface they sink / One / By / One / Down / into this wishing well / I cast …

The breath of the universe beckons

Where am I? / Where the fuck am I? / I am lost. / A mere drop in this immense ocean / of time, insanity, experience. / Let me out! / I be…

I am but a shadow… A shadow of myself

We’ve been asleep for too damn long / And now I’m bored.

Mortality

An innocent cut pierces more than just my flesh, / and I am left with the acknowledgement of my own nothingness, / of my fleeting existence…

Bridging the self-inflicted gap

Time ticks on… / My lips part; / tongue prepares, / the formation of a half word presents itself - / silence.

Who am I?

pink ears / pink feet / and a tail to match / enormous, alert eyes / and a black and white back

Worthless Race

Feeding, breathing, multiplying. / Existing, not living

Atheist am I not

They question not their society, / wallowing in mud, / and in almighty Christianity / hide their sins in blood

Thought

Thought – / catch it, / quick / And squash it onto this / paper / Make it stick

…they try to uncover / my secrets of old, / poke, search, discover, / as if I’m guarding some gold.

Wonderland

…Slipping down Alice’s rabbit hole / plunging into Wonderland - / A parallel universe…

For the Fish

Flowing, shimmering, / flashes of light / energetic, beautiful, / swift in its flight.

The Beggar

To be cold, unclean, / very sad, / living your life like a stray.
