Black Dirt

Black dirt,

Will it make it worse?

Make it hurt?

Black dirt,

Will it make it work?

Feel it in your bones

Holy uncontrolled,

Feel it in your soul.

 

Scatter me into the wind,

I thought I would always call you a friend

But now I’m staring down labyrinths, lost again,

I remember the way your eyes,

Used to look into mine,

Long before I drank the poisoned wine,

I tried and I tried to just be fine,

But my heart was shards of what it was,

Covered in invisible cuts,

Wanting so badly to go in reverse but the course is ran,

Please forgive me I can hardly stand,

I’m sinking in the:

 

Black dirt,

Will it make it worse?

Make it hurt?

Black dirt,

Will it make it work?

Feel it in your bones

Holy uncontrolled,

Feel it in your soul.

 

Scatter me once again,

I could no longer pretend

That your shadow didn’t offend,

I remember the way we were innocent,

Before the river ran dry,

Long before I drank the poisoned wine,

I tried and I tried to just be fine,

But burning anger consumed my love,

Covering you in invisible cuts,

I want so badly to take it back,

Truth is, I don’t know who I am,

I’m sinking in the:

 

Black dirt,

Will it make it worse?

Make it hurt?

Black dirt,

Will it make it work?

Feel it in your bones

Holy uncontrolled,

Feel it in your soul.

Listen

It was never about us, not really, but we think it is, when we’re young.

In the afterglow of our youth, as the sun sets, we see how it was about all of us.

We were all seeking our slivers of light, our embers of passion and truth.

Like stardust, we fill our pockets with memories and hopes of better tomorrows.

It will not ever be as wonderful or horrible as we can imagine, it will simply be and we will simply be there to meet it and look into it’s blinking eyes, reflections of our own gaze, a soul’s hall of mirrors, casting the most beautiful reflections we will ever see.

There is no regret, there is nothing but a song that lingers on, long after we have sung our last note.

It has been sung through all time, it will be sung through all time.

Listen and you will hear the melody.

Listen.

Your bare feet moving across my hardwood floors

Hot ink in hand, seeking a shore,

Cyclical serpentine daydreams,

Wind their way between you and me,

Reverse the course, reverse the fault,

“Here is where your proud waves halt”

I can’t deny what I can’t claim,

Tell me your name.

My face tenderly cupped in her right hand, a cigarette in the other,

Awaiting velvet words from divine M/Other,

“You will always be mine, I love you” she gently says to me,

I smile, meet her gaze, inhale and agree.

A Year and Some Change Later

A little over a year ago, a former classmate and friend of mine took her own life.

I have spent a good portion of last year grieving this in a variety of ways. One of the ways was writing a poem:

Mostly, I want to say that I know that we’re all going through something (if we’re honest most of us always have something to celebrate and something to mourn) but please reach out if you feel like you can’t handle what you’re going through.

May we all know how loved and beloved we are.

Day 28 NaPoWriMo: Skeltonic Verse

Your mind will not be my cage,

Light the palo santo and the sage,

Purify and turn the page,

Pause for righteousness, cease, release,

There is a case for Godliness, a reason to seek peace,

We must still ourselves as the world continues to turn,

Though absent now, the sun will return,

We will descend or rise together,

Let’s be wise and rise, let us be windswept feathers,

Floating on the breeze of mystery,

Hope, hardwork and many dreams,

Collaborating to rebuild our shared reality.

Day 14 NaPoWriMo: Clerihew*

From gap tooth, to gold grill,

Evolution, revolution, Prophetess still,

Virgin, sex book, Evita, Slay Queen,

We dance, as through transitions, she sings.

 

*Disclaimer, a clerihew is supposed to be satirical but at the moment, I’m unable to produce such a poem, instead, this is a tribute to an amazing ever-evolving artist. Thank you Madonna, for everything! ❤ ❤ ❤
