only here lays countenance…

she is not less

because you don’t

acknowledge her

such a difficult mountain to stare at

such an overwhelming climb

she is just about there

almost to the summit

to greet the sun

which feeds her light to be love and give warmth

for that which she too is deserving

her weak voice and hard will

whispers thank you’s for

all the empty spaces

you’ve placed her in

for how could she discover

she is more than your silence

more than than the dust and

smeared fingerprints on sensitive glass

her prayer to be loved

to love as an all consuming fire

the countenance of pure love

still unanswered…

 

one day

someone unafraid and unburdened 

 fully realized her worth and willingly

risked everything he ever knew to live

wholly & completely loved by her…

and it was beautiful

 

(or so the insane story goes…)

War to love…

I use to think I needed to reach a certain place to be defined as successful, but I have move beyond those thoughts. I choose to not remain in a certain place, nor plant my feet on any plateau, nor assume I am completed pieces of a put-together-puzzle! Life is evolution, ever in motion, in a constant state of flux, a river snaked to the ocean, evaporation to rain, of storms and swells, lapping tides, rushing and crashing, to calming ebb and flow.

I willingly dive into life’s waters, yet it is not always an easy choice. Even seemingly safe waters are decieving, distances are skewed, the shallows are not necessarily safe, and a deeper depth just may save you…what appears to be, is not always what is. To live is to risk! Evanesce of pain and hurt requires change, requires one to rage war within, requires an acceptance of dark to find light, to search bloody battlefields of self to find love, to love oneself and to love others.

To become love is my choosing and it  has been so very hard these past few years to be open to change, to brave the heartwrenching pain that comes from stretching beyond self-imposed thresholds, so that I may peel back layers, dismantle the metal armor, tear rancid flesh from my bones lying in blood and dust,  just to expose the very core of my existence. I am full of scars, and still tend to the cuts bleeding…self-love does rage against self-hate. Yet, how precious my spirit, my soul, willing to risk all that I created, everything desirable and undesireable, all that I have known, to become more than a statistic, more than a label, more than my sex, more than my physical body, more than someone else’s measure of my worth.

And where does all this leave me? Still willing! Trusting this moment to lead me into the next moment, to guide me from novice to mastery…through war…to love

an unraveling and eating dust of dying light

I see it now

colors of evidence

screaming goodbye

I am slit and fading

drained

quickly becoming a no-thing

everything I feel

I can’t speak

there is no language

designed of this world

to speak of me

I am unraveling

a pile of disheveled threads

and slip into death

another pointed star

embedded in my heart

a burden bleeding

staring at the edge of love

eating dust of my dying light

settling in cracks

and the jackals pace…

smelling my decay

waiting for my last breath

 

 

an excerpt…

Transmutation

reminiscent of something beautiful

I am falling

like light filtered through trees

almost feathering across your heart

when I reach you

it will only illuminate

a deeper violet flame 

skin to skin

we are shimmer and blaze

radiance

finally remembered

love & healing

connected before time

ever knew to be

 

The above is an excerpt from my current creative project, in the making since February of this year. I have no time table as to when it will be complete, as inspiration comes delivered in increments of divine timing.

I am constantly being tested and learning to be giving, and receptive to self-love, unconditional love, awareness, and patience…

 

 

 

entering the void…

I pulled aside the curtain
for a quiet moment
just to take in the silence
the kind rising inside midnight
and so true to its design
the dark blue spreads across my chest
I could feel stillness and obscurity
appreciating that no one disturbs it
I want to slip away
so effortlessly like
cool silk slips across 
warm skin…
i image you next to me
feeling as that…
and I fade further into 
black nothingness

a concerning matter…

it is difficult to not want 
certain ways to be
if you would like 
ways to be a certain way

there are moments she’s slinking
into dark pockets
suffocated by feelings of neglect

and she is asking herself
for the rest of her years
is she willing to be
be placed as someone’s
never a priority
or tenth 
or fourth
or second best

and what is worse…?

that…?

or being
nobody’s somebody?

bold…

I feel this bold energy
like I could exist to text you 
and tell you to fuck off
as you come towards me
why bother
why inject me with desire
if never comes
then how will I breathe
I feel this bold energy
like I could pack my perfume
favorite jeans & sweater
bleed my golden heart out into your palm
and fly away to a different year
Maybe I would exist
in younger skin 
leave all the boys with silent hard-ons
Or maybe you wouldn’t be hard for anyone else just only hard for me
I feel this bold energy
like who the Fuck cares 
dark blue is so good at coursing my veins
maybe I’ll just fade away in silence
and you can kiss all the pretty lipstick lips
and think of my nude swollen truth against your mouth

I feel this bold energy…

ya… bold

Like…fuck you!

 

the white glow of her screen…

life and death
an existing dissonance
a prop 
a joke 
in one’s own life 
reading unseen words
with a drugged effect
just a stupid woman trying to fit 
in arms built for smaller bodies
& sharper minds
where clearly she doesnt exist
at 12:47 am 
Or 2:29 am 
nor 3am
and all the hours inbetween
reject me too
I thought I knew differently
but fresh faces and cute laughter
get ahead in the game of love
I am too old for film
and will just end up on
the cutting room floor
