I saw a flower
in a crack of a sidewalk,
that reminded me of you.
Not because it was common,
but because it was original.
Something beautiful
that grew
from nothing.

I do not fear death
I think it must be a relief
Like the kind that comes from
A good nights sleep.

Sit away to silently falling leaves*
glorious light drifts away
frozen in a cool icy breeze
ebony shadows as lifelines fray
dull crimson drops to death
gather silently on the ground …
cover ****** scarred flesh
*in autumn tears she drowned.

Raging tempers leap across your face*
Dragging down the wretched lear
Fury reveals a heart of waste
Cursing beauty with paranoid fear
Rip across those lovely strands
For beauty is only skin deep
****** to the hands
That caused a heartfelt leap
Curse your lovely stature
That speaks by its self
Only to bring about painful rapture
Pushed back on a dusty shelf
Down with the torment
Wasted along the way
There's no way to deal with this
**For misery has come to stay.
Rae Anne Jul 2016
be still now, my love*
let me kiss the nerves dancing
from your fingertips
Rae Anne Jul 2016
Dreams began in the woods*
Led by the white of the moon
A feather-light passerby
Rae Anne Jul 2016
they were nothing more than momentary,*
they were like the leaves that rustle by
as you walk the rocky edges
of a side street’s sidewalk.
