grey horizon
lily Mar 2021
Treading water now.
Wondering, when the time comes,
will I swim or sink.

The Nothing
lily Aug 2017
I swallowed my pride
like a miracle pill
hoping it would heal us.

Every morning I put my heart back together
and every night it factures, again.

I scream ****
into the nothing
and nothing hears me.

the Longing
lily Apr 2017
The longing tattoos.
Meander over skin like
a drowning river.

Rice hugs yellow fin
as they tango on my tongue
melding sea and earth

A Spring Affair
lily Mar 2015
Fashionably gloved
Flirting with the pierced bald man
Lemon scented me

My dream
used to be
living in a house
by the sea.
Now my
only dream is
you and me.

Breakfast, lunch and dinner
I will never grow thinner
Eating something so savory
As biscuits and gravory.
I woke with a craving.

For Him
lily Sep 2014
Like Eloise at The Plaza
who runs halls with abandon,
I’ve not had more fun.
You’re my mostly companion.

Waiting to see you
is excruciating tantra.
Glorious anticipation
like a trip to see Santa.

Put me on your lap and
make my wishes come true.
No better present opened
than the day you gave me you.

Slipping my oar in the water
Wondering why it took so long
To stop the current from pushing me
From overturning me
Steady now

After too long apart
I met you and thought
Oh, there you are
my missing

We 2
lily Jul 2014
We’re camels, we two,
evolved to endure
stretches of time and distance.
Come fill me up.

Feature Presentation
lily Jul 2014
Counting laugh lines signed by you,
a life less ordinary
flickered into view.
Single frames of you and me
at our place and NYC.
Spliced together and worn from use
memories of my love, my muse.
The light won’t dim on our could be’s,
my Keats, my Titan,
my Always.

Half Full

Blown wishes from weeds
Rose glasses wiped clean again
Tended hope garden

Your words come into me
I feel them in my chest
static charging me
my heart jumps

Your words press down on me
like insistent hands
pumping my heart
once more

Your words penetrate
like an addict's needle
my heart pulses again and again

You strike me
like fevered lightning
igniting my heart
now pounding fast
with a steady rhythm

I am alive.

You've created a monster.

Thrill Seeker
lily Jun 2014
Heart pounding from adrenaline
the thrill seeker steps to the precipice
ready for the jump
the flight
the fear

Hungry for euphoria
aching to touch alive again
mindless of risk
life is short

With eyes wide shut
greedy for exhilaration
the edge is abandoned
jeopardy ignored
rushing, elated,
heart racing reward

Addictive thrills
hunted tirelessly
she can’t stay away from him.
