Hello, my little memories
Sounds and sights
Wrong and right
All I think about, most the time

I dream of places no soul could find
With brighter stars in otherwise empty skies
A place I belong
Where all feels right

Perhaps in a century or two
Word will reach some of you
Of such a place as I described
Where the young go

To feel alive

fell in love near
a three-pointed star,
sailing down canals
made of concrete,
she landed, on her feet,
and, where they meet,
some color out of space
cries hark and havok,
a Rebecca of green eyes,
emerald traffic lights,
lady on the make,
giver in a town
full of ghosts
that take.

.
Inmost as cold tomb,
A soul is left, hushed,
Only seeks true light,
Unframed, shows itself.

Welcome to breaking,
All minds who question,
Let the whispers rail,
Only for an ears open.

Look into chaos here
At the edges of doom,
Wish for nothing's no
Upset by veins so blue.

We are cut runners, all
Braving into new upsets,
Take countings down,
All days are numbered.

Show me fake love,
Lie to me in the face...
Kiss me with broken words
and hold me in an empty embrace.

Love me,
Love me not
I don't even care.
Just remember to
buy me some flowers
and play with my hair.

Compliment me
once in a while
tell me jokes and
make me smile

Make me fake promises
promise me a place
with just the two of us
and nothing but empty space.

Because love is just an illusion
that does nothing but shatter my heart
and what we have is a hopeless dream
and you'll understand that if you're smart.

Just show me fake love,
and lie to me in the face...
Kiss me with tainted words
and break me with grace

Just harsh, unedited mess of words splattered into stanzas. Don't even read, just keep scrolling along.

You show up
and nothing else matters
here with you settled down
in the calm of morning garden
the sun is sitting beautifully
in this very roof.

We are the dream
that never ends
flowers in my hand
arms embracing me
and I've never wanted
to kiss you more in my life.

They say everything
that's in front of you
leads you home
but you're here just behind me
and I don't want to go
anywhere else.

I left the coast
on a tiny blue and red rowing boat
I left my shoes on the pier
and jumped right in

I row to a beach and look along it
in moonlight
searching for those certain blue eyes
that I only half-remember
but all I see is strangers staring,
why are they sunbathing at night?

I give up, row back to land
the only sound is me pushing water
I struggle up the rungs of the ladder

loose my footing
fall
then suddenly
I don't know
whether I made it up the ladder at all

(after-note: although it's never mentioned in the poem, I hope that it is obvious that this is about a dream. I trust the reader to have picked up on it)

The fear
Throat clenching fear
The glazed eyes
The tears
The drenched sheets
The constant shivers
The dark
The shadows come to life
The hand clenching your chest
The heart trying to escape its cage
The clawing at invisible bindings
The suffocating
The weight on your chest
The gasping for air
The amnesia
What has you so scared

This is just my experience with night terrors. I never remember the actual dream but my body seems to.

we have gotten to know each other.
you have seen more to me than you might have liked to, but i have seen more of you than i could have ever
dreamed of.
your body and it's crystals and it's galaxies,
not always like the ones that i saw in my dreams because in them i remember your eyelids closed for me,
but in this world my lips are not on them but rather in front blowing
eyelashes out while my mind wanders into bottomless voids of
you
you
you
you
and i thought my love poems did not mean anything.
but you make every single word worth it.
every syllable.

Dear America,

You can have back the fence
And the manicured lawn,
The driveway, garage,
The land it's all on.

You can have back the wedding,
The marriage, the spouse,
The 2.5 kids
In the 3-bedroom house.

You can have back the couch
And the big TV screen,
The latest, the greatest
Appliance, machine.

The glasses of milk
And the sliced deli meats,
The curtains, the carpets,
The high thread count sheets.

I don't need your extras,
The watches, the rings,
The closets, the junk drawers,
The things upon things.

You can take back the job
With its 8-to-5 day,
With its handcuffs of promise,
Its 401K.

And the island vacations,
The shopping regimes,
Your Hollywood stars and
Your marketing schemes.

I have bigger dreams.

Because sometimes it takes longer than a week to write a poem...
