You’re my superman yet, I drowned.

When we think of hero
We think of super hero
Like bat man or
captain america
Or super man
Hero
Hero
When we think of hero
We think of super hero
Like bat man or
captain America
Or super man but what
is hero mean
Is when you save
someone life
There is hero around
us like cops
Or firefights or paramedics
And even if you save
someone of jumping of a
building you are a hero
So thank you all.

#hero  

I, too, was once a man
in search of guiding light.
Hopeless, lost, alone
and ready to give up the fight.

When a helping hand reached out,
unencumbered by my weight
and took it upon themselves
to pull me from Hell's gate.

Self sacrifice; a virtue
that I would someday know
to be the shelter that I found
beneath the cape of my hero.

Confide in me, my darling;
I'll be your great escape.
It was written in the starlight
that I would don the cape.

My heart lifts
to hear your voice
and hear your laugh
Only to long to see your smile
and the flashes of your lovely teeth
within reach of my fingertips
Fingertips that cannot touch you
for 150 days
Finally the rising tears spilled over

You haven't even left town yet and I'm already crying
#love   #hero   #face   #bye   #jaye  

My hero has left me
in the world of monsters
with no protection
except for this feeble mind

Her memory is strong
but her presence is gone
like the stars disappeared
from this dark night sky

The world has gone silent
for the loss of my hero
her beautiful voice
has left our world

Sadness does not do justice
her death is more than that
it's everything that is bad
she took all beauty with her

A general, princess even
but a hero in my eyes
drowned in moonlight
strangled by her own bra

RIP Carrie Fisher. May the force be with you!

Motion, 'side-by-side,' -taste.
Tiny ridges, odd projections, scales
over a hunken-frame, -slide.

Two Dead Bears; Red Eyes!
Two Dead Bears; Red Eyes!
Betwixt two bears; it lies.


Cranial portholes, back out, newt,
shimmery black tongues array, -kiss.
Tail around the head; constrict.

Two Dead Bears; Red Eyes!
Two Dead Bears; Red Eyes!
Betwixt two bears; it lies.


Celestial space, taste the air,
Now slither wrap the eyelashes...
twist, pull apart, open, -see!

Two Dead Bears; Red Eyes!
Two Did Bear; Red Eyes!
Betwixt two bears; they lied.


Three rows of teeth exposed,
to suck out the eye!
A Dragon consumes a Hero.

It is not a myth.

You can't go, my shining knight,
With all those windmills still out there-
I'll never conquer them alone.
Your charger must be grazing nearby.
I know he's waiting for your call.

I've hung  bright banners on the gilded poles
And tuned the lutes for happy songs
So you must don your gleaming armor,
Take the smile I offer you
And tie my ribbon to your arm.

If just my will can create strength
Then you have more than Hercules,
And courage born of knowing that
Respect and need are locked in battle
For which shall take the upmost place.

My other knights are ragged and forlorn-
Their fathers wet and dragged in dirt.
Their lances cracked and badly mended.
I can't manage one more charge
Unless you ride before me in the sun.

Lunar Love
Lunar Love
Dec 31, 2016

A castle is built
           within myself
Caging the sleeping beauty inside
With thorns growing all around
Piercing through
   my head and my heart
The damsel in her slumbering distress
Knows not a single pain
But puts faith in her prince
                         And her fairy guardians
All of whom have no true sword
To slay the dragon roaring like tides
Or to awaken the kingdom
     Of the numbness
                in which they hide
Not even the witch who casted the spell
Can undo the magic bind
              
Because I myself am the
         Princess, the prince,
The castle, the fairy guardians, the dragon,
                     The kingdom
And the
    Witch

It's only in
    A dying me
Where the saddest fairytale can
              Thrive

A seemingly self-heroic one-woman show of what seems to be a fairytale on the outside, but a horror story within.

I have felt sad and empty for days, trying to salvage my emotions and balance them and whatnot. I've tried to become my own castle and fortress, my own prince, my own guardian; sometimes defeating the dragon in me, and sometimes succumbing to the witch in me. Sometimes the kindgom in me just watches numbly, unsciously waiting to see if the princess in me awakens herself and saves everyone. I am the cursed and the blessed, the destroyer and savior, the reader and the writer of my own fairytale. This is the first and last writing that will have all those bad and sad feelings i've felt. I will leave all the negative emotions I have experienced in 2016, here in this writing.

I know 2017, will be a better year.
