Rust

7b02e6b3714f17c26613e679bec8d52eLiquid darkness is her shroud

Where once lovers walked.

Fish swim like birds over her deck.

Unsinkable;

Hubris writ large in the stars.

The stories never remembered;

The tiny child in third class.

Hiding under a now-rusty bed

The cameras found her doll.

Fist

fistFingers curl

Seeking their centre

And rest

On a solid palm.

Thumb encloses.

Warmth seeking

Meaning making.

Defiance.

Protection.

Feral

Instinctual

Reactive.

Love’s embrace is forgotten

In rage.

Shard

Boy looking scared through the handrail of a staircaseMy mother left when I was three

I remember her at the front door

Surrounded by the winter coats

The National Geographic magazines on the shelf framed her;

Telling my father

She wouldn’t stay.

Her fear and determination

Echoed in my ears

As I looked through

The  banister.

Tousled hair, half awake-

Possibly drunk-

He dies then.

I only realize that later.

Strength

I can handle

The weight of the

World.

Prometheus

Was  ignorant.

He tried

Too hard.

I smile and

Humanity

Hands me their sleeping

Babies.

 

Bend

sensualA fork in the road;

Face the wind

And walk into the storm’s torrent-

Or

Submit to the usual step

Of life’s dull pace

And follow your mother’s dream.

I bend;

Accepting the lover’s push,

And smile as I come;

Transferable

Bliss.

 

 

 

Echo

narcissus2She left the noisy city to escape

The crowds.

Festival time always brought

Out the worst in people.

A day in the country

With only her thoughts for company

Would be heaven;

Honey, crust and grape.

She found him

Hours from  humanity

Gazing into the water.

The tanned and taught body

Of a hunter.

With the awe of a human

Who has walked into the realm of a god

She sits and admires.

He ignores-

Self-seeking and disconnected.

She lingers

Subservient

Alone

Waiting for his reply.

Illusion

She entered unannounced

Her voice

Soft as an autumn breeze

A lover’s caress.

She silenced the chaos.

Apple scented beauty

Just out of reach.

Soon.

Soon,

She said.

And so you wait.
