Poem – “I Hurt you” – Love Poetry – 10/16/2021

At times,Loyalty bends itselfToo low,To become earth.Once above, now belowTo be the maggot in the grains.Your tearsDo not, cannot, water me. I am among the gardenNeeding cultivation from the devil,For roses redder than his flame,For love more immortalThan eternal. Knife in your heart,As I hurt you.A toast to your restless nights,As I burn my throat.… Continue reading Poem – “I Hurt you” – Love Poetry – 10/16/2021

Poem – “Tight-Roped Feelings” – Love Poetry – 10/16/2021

Cold kiss, ofTwo drunks on the breathTo another,TogetherWith the same directionOf a pain that stares upwardsTo a sun that never sets,HighlightingOur scars. For water, we walkSaving ourselves, savoring the otherWith blood, the wine.Bread for a smile,Kissed towards the bloodied mile.Pain to dilateThe pupilsInto black holes that swallowMore shame, than pride. A journeyTaken, with breath to… Continue reading Poem – “Tight-Roped Feelings” – Love Poetry – 10/16/2021

Poem – “Holding Hands with a Ghost” – Love Poetry – 10/15/2021

Washed out,Blue upon the naked horizon.Walking with velvet in arms,While kissing mere glints of orange. A bright, warm touchFrom something past in former daylight,Walking beneath towersFlying your banner,Holding hands with your ghostBeing blue in its careening breath. Holding tightThe world most left behind,Left beneath tracksFrom stampeding feet. Your blue, somber boldnessWith a killing warmth to… Continue reading Poem – “Holding Hands with a Ghost” – Love Poetry – 10/15/2021

Poetry Series – “Autumn in the Skies” – 20/50 – “Unforgettable, Regrettable” – 10/9/2021

Make me swearTo a false worship upon your idle sands.Weeping to fill in the starsToo fewIn the reflections upon a nighttimeOcean, stilled in motion. Crying for the west,While we raised our eyes to the east.How long was the horizon?What was the temperatureTo our sensation, in the fire?Bent wings,With unchangeable expressions.Outside the span,To a nullifying numbness.… Continue reading Poetry Series – “Autumn in the Skies” – 20/50 – “Unforgettable, Regrettable” – 10/9/2021

Poetry Series – “One to Listen for” – 16/25 – “You were All, for Nothing” – 10/9/2021

A lifetime agoWith as much, never enough timeTo write the draft, differently.Clocks stopOnly when your lips were smeared,Only when the fire came most aliveIn the salienceFor twin shadows being monarchs,Outside our tombs. Someone died, long agoWith devotion staking his heart.Blood rebelled,Running against the pressure.A lifetime agoTo rewrite the scriptSaid aloud, in the eclipse of a… Continue reading Poetry Series – “One to Listen for” – 16/25 – “You were All, for Nothing” – 10/9/2021

Poetry Series – “One to Listen for” – 15/25 – “Abrupt Release” – 10/9/2021

Was it a brief sparkThat lit the pathwayFar apart?While our hearts burned on oil,Becoming the plume,The ashes we released fromLips most kissed, beneath the blue. Sequence,With many unfurled sentencesThat kept our eyes closed,Focused on the scars where daylightIs the evening through,As morning walks upon the thinnest wire. Once a beginningTo the sun being born, for… Continue reading Poetry Series – “One to Listen for” – 15/25 – “Abrupt Release” – 10/9/2021

Poetry Series – “Autumn in the Skies” – 19/50 – “Kisses for Sunsets” – 10/8/2021

Kisses for trainsRunning through tracks, as youGo through feeble times,With infanthood in your head.An egg had fallenTo be the still-born, to be the same weather-wornRock of smoothness beneath fading sunlight.Near a river,Once the statue carved from a boulder.Now the pebble, becoming dust. Ravens overhead,Hearts that tremble from dread.Kissing the sunset,Same with your neutral expressionThat folded… Continue reading Poetry Series – “Autumn in the Skies” – 19/50 – “Kisses for Sunsets” – 10/8/2021

Poem – “Autumn in the Skies” – 18/50 – “Open-Mouthed Dive” – 10/8/2021

RetractingWithout subtracting.WithdrawingWith the gun to shoot in the directionOf your vacant heart, in the dark. The open field,Where thunder struck to fuse two forms.Two eyes to seeBeneath a tarp that holds upThe rain.It cannot shield us. We love,Mystified.We build,Being deprived, next toOur aching oceans.While walking as Christ upon waves,We are faithful, and forsakenWhile bloodCovers our… Continue reading Poem – “Autumn in the Skies” – 18/50 – “Open-Mouthed Dive” – 10/8/2021

Poetry Series – “One to Listen for” – 14/25 – “No one Got this Far” – 10/8/2021

What loveWas a purchase, not a sale?What lifeWas not stolen, did not resistIts abductionTo the imprisonment of a heart? Whose footstepsWere not covered by the snow?When lovers walk backwards,They were disguised. Whose eyesWere lifted to the sun?That bright, blinding spotThat were like motherly armsTo the love that was a guessTo a future without fear. This… Continue reading Poetry Series – “One to Listen for” – 14/25 – “No one Got this Far” – 10/8/2021

Poetry Series – “One to Listen for” – 13/25 – “Finding you, Beneath” – 10/8/2021

Beneath the stones,Hearts just areThe same stillness in the rush,Among where empty voicesAre cartedIn the night's wind. Funerals forThe deepest kiss,While eyes are never wateredTo raise a garden from the soul.Eyes are discardedTo look uponThe silver vapor from faint breathsIn the mesmerizing winter. Finding you,Beneath the waters.Living in the same state as you,Beyond borderlines.Beyond where… Continue reading Poetry Series – “One to Listen for” – 13/25 – “Finding you, Beneath” – 10/8/2021

Poetry Series – “One to Listen for” – 12/25 – “Born into Fruit” – 10/7/2021

There were tracesLeft to the reminderThat your form took awayIts ease, in the play.You escaped,Round in cheeks.Bottoms up, faces lowTo the sound of another carnivalYou might show clown colors. Another moon for the dim arrivalTo another night without truth.You tremble to the same rhythmAs the final flickering lightTo a cursed day. Another sunThat exited from… Continue reading Poetry Series – “One to Listen for” – 12/25 – “Born into Fruit” – 10/7/2021

Were we both miles apart,For faces open?With grueling smilesEven more expressiveThan the heart did beat itselfUpon the crippled pathway.With defeated glancesThat flood the waves,ApartFrom our wind-torn eyes - We will still reap what we sowIn fields still stainedWith sweat, with diseaseThat grants the same blue bloodTo the evening eyes - Deep in the sores of… Continue reading Poetry Series – “One to Listen for” – 11/25 – “What was the Game?” – 10/7/2021
