Muddy Water

Do you like the chase more than the catch?

I want future, you want past,

You get bored when you think,

You possess that which you seek,

But I’m assured that with time,

You’d find you’ll never fully possess that which is my mind,

Maybe I think too much but I think you only bore of yourself,

To be clear, I’m inviting you on an adventure, I don’t want anybody else.

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.

We meet again in a crowded staircase,

This is the place,

Where I meet your blazing chilled stare with a smile,

I walk the labyrinth between us that spans light years of miles,

I have seen it before, slowly, the bricks will crash,

The walls, figments and flash,

I will be victorious

and

You will be in my past.

Venus’ Invocation

The sun will shine again,

A new beginning in every end,

Cut the rope, reverent hushed,

Nothing worth having can ever be rushed,

Muddy footprints mark the path,

Intrinsically present, future and past,

Are your tables stable? Do your bridges burn?

Are the horses heroes and from where do you return?

Is the sun heavy, its beams an amulet in your throat?

Do you cut like a dagger weaving it’s way through silver smoke?

As you take an autumn inhalation of iridescent stars,

Crackling navy scarlet moonlit bonfires and guitars,

Trust in the timing of evolution,

May you bravely step to the left and enjoy the revolution.

The hallway between us, tornado alley,

It feels as if there are magnets behind our eyes,

Pulling us towards a cyclone orbit,

If I could count your pennies,

They might add up and cancel out the bass drum heartbeat that leaves me breathless,

But for now, I brush lips against wind,

Breathe in the breeze, trusting that the storm will pass.

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.

Drawn and Quartered, You cut the rope,

Now I take cautious steps toward hope,

I hope to be brave, I hope to keep curious,

Puzzle pieces connecting to beauty so endless,

Constellations of events lie behind and ahead of me,

But I will never forget what you said to me,

“Connect, it’s not hard, embrace the O/other and be embraced,

You have the right to ask questions, It’s going to be okay,

You’re not alone, me too,

When everything is fakakta nourish yourself and others with good food.”
