Stars

A gentle touch.
You traced the stars with my heart
and hold my soul
in the embrace of your galaxy.

One More

I am trapped in the soft prison
of my own flesh.
The wardens have wrapped my heart in wire.

Tied down by the demons
that hunt us.
I don’t mind being another taken,
one more.

I Wait

Sounds muffled, musicians play to the night.
Off the water and across the sand,
I sit and wait for you.

Uninvited Guest

There you were, frail and weak,
if I touched you, you were sure to fall apart.
I knew you were there, and I knew you were alive,
I could hear it from the beating of your heart.

Alive

A heavy weight against the heart
can only slow the beating.
It does not stop, merely pulsing.
Weak, but alive.

Blame

Day brought the shadows when it shone too bright,
created the darkness to dance with the light.

Blame the sun for burning,
fire on your skin.
and watch as the clouds abandon the sky.
