Orange Vibrato

March 27, 2014 § 2 Comments

The body hums an
Orange Vibrato
when the feelings are
too terrifying
to face alone.
A violent burning
blinds on instinct
from the demonized
other side.
It’s easier to
poeticize
than process.

Opiate

The dreamy elysian fields
I found myself in
drown in pitch
wrenched from the dregs
of this
ill-fated fortune-telling
that pulled us both down
eyes first
out of the rabbit hole
hands blind
to the heart in intent
you are

Cold bodies, always
honest in their intention
to seek pure warmth.

The Tempest

July 8, 2013 § Leave a comment

Filling the house with the sound of your voice,
I am the core.
The center of the tempest, I am stuck
in the emptiness that’s come now you’re gone.
I don’t exist without it.

That radio broadcast
put in your own words all we loved about you
and gave me the answers I never thought to ask for,
but still it’s not enough.

It still feels like I’ll see you Saturday,
but lost inside the tempest,
I’m standing on my own.

because we have money now.

When he yelled at me, it tore my heart.
But it won’t hurt when he yells at you,
Because we have money now.

When he locked me up, I couldn’t breathe.
But you’ll still breathe when he locks you down,
Because we have money now.

When he beat me, it broke my bones.
But yours won’t break when he beats you,
Because we have money now.

When they left, it was so lonely.
But when we leave, you’ll never be lonely,
Because we have money now.

When he killed me, I took it quietly.
You should take it quietly too,
Because we have money now.

a club long dead.

The banners taken down,
The meeting room long closed,
They mourn it now,
A thing they never touched
In life.
Apathethic
To how the weight of
How I saw their expectations
Pressed against my lungs and heart,
Trying to keep the magic alive
For fellows who
Were always too
Busy.
