if you don't like me
don't act like you do
just leave me alone
♀
i'm not a fuel stop
along "rebound" hwy
leave me alone
♀
i can't help you that way
i love way too hard
leave me alone
♀
if you're not in love
spare my blissful ignorance
leave me alone

out my hands to hold
this love overflowing from my soul
but my hands
they were not big enough
it spilled all over
made a mess
and I did not want to waste the rest
so I poured it into other hands
where love saturates
and spills again

said he'd marry me if I had blue hair
but he doesn't remember & doesn't care

not much of what he said was true
still it sticks to me like super glue

willing conquest I confess
he took me to the wilderness

offered myself as sacrifice
rejected I returned to ice

all these lives in shiny cars
cold little lies wrapped in scarves

and here I am, another one
dark heart bleeding, baiting the sun
12.18.19
I stepped outta my car
And landed in the mud
At the cabin, transported
Many miles and months

A gift from the gods
Or nature herself
Replicated that night
Down to the smell

Of wet earth and leaves
***** boots and damp hair
The sound of the frogs
The drinkable air

Rain coming down
In fits and lulls
A game of darts
Those stubborn bulls

Why tell my why
Why slight the slighted
Gimme the ink of fate
And I'll rewrite it

Without bullets
Without glass
Just grilled cheese tomato soup
Screwdrivers and sass

I stand still now
Let it all trickle down
Grace washes over me
On its way to the ground
3.19.20
I will not diminish this pain with pretty words on paper

I will not express
something so grotesque
in porcelain prose
that nobody knows

If anything it should be
vile atrocious
rotting repulsive
charred and scarred
and ripped apart
like the way it left me
2008
Final click, give it a kick
Sit and wait, wait and sit
She stops dancing, loses her grip
Grey days stretch into more
Grey waves crash upon the door
A mirror hangs where bug mesh did
It displays a fading face
Every now and then
She forgets the feel
Of smooth legs and bare skin
Still somewhere deep within
She remembers warm sunshine
Out of patience, out of time
She flings open a window
And leaps blind
He catches her, arms open wide
All that waiting on a door sealed shut
All she had to do was jump
2019
It's time like theses
a little red robin breast
Can bring you a moment
Of cheerfulness
A walk surrounding green area .
Can make you feel free
Lift up your spirits .
Especially when the sun is out
I just like to roam about .
ThankgoodnessΒ Β 
We are free to do just that
I afraid I might just go insane .

A lover asked his beloved,
Do you love yourself more
than you love me?



The beloved replied,
I have died to myself
and I live for you.



I’ve disappeared from myself
and my attributes.
I am present only for you.



I have forgotten all my learning,
but from knowing you
I have become a scholar.



I have lost all my strength,
but from your power
I am able.



If I love myself
I love you.
If I love you
I love myself.

Rumi
The moon has become a dancer
at this festival of love.
This dance of light,

This sacred blessing,
This divine love,
beckons us
to a world beyond
only lovers can see
with their eyes of fiery passion.

They are the chosen ones
who have surrendered.
Once they were particles of light
now they are the radiant sun.

They have left behind
the world of deceitful games.
They are the privileged lovers
who create a new world
with their eyes of fiery passion.
