i miss the sweetness
of your soft kisses
on my forehead
before we went to bed,
and the ways your eyes sparkled
when you told me you love me
while we slept on the floor
on the feather bed

i’d give everything to see
your eyes sparkle again.
do you miss it?
do you miss how our love
got us out of our own heads?

i’d go to the ends of this world
to show you that our love is still alive,
that we can hold each other
and allow it to thrive,
that we can look into each other’s eyes
and see our love sparkle
and come back to life

your bina

everything can be beautiful
if you can't even tell
what you're looking at
beauty is subjective

I sleep with his dead body
he's so warm

I imagine his breath hitting my face

in my mind
it's a loud room

his whispers linger
in the dark

our bodies dance
around the fireplace

I'm not afraid

he's almost there
I'm almost there
we're almost there

I'm almost there
he's almost here
we're almost there

almost there

Autumn wants attention today
as she tosses leaves
into cool, crisp air

Autumn wants attention today
as my flip flops are thrown
off my porch
into a pile of crunchy leaves

There is a chill 
It makes me awake, more prescient

There is a chill
Have I prepared?

Autumn wants attention today
as she tosses what's no longer needed aside
his eyes shined in the soft sunlight
i found peace in his violence
cant figure out why hes trying
i asked hi his name
and he smiled at me like a fox
and said "i am a boy called love"

all week long
dancing around
like every word is a song
ive been dreaming
of you and me
about what could happen
if i left for the sea

when you find yourself
a dapple of
nature's dew
falls from
the
tips of
peach-yellow marigolds
just
waiting for
the
raising sun

Summers,
even the dew is hot
And it pools like searing wax on the envelope of the morning.

Summers here are always wet.
Whether with rain, with sweat,
or with the dew.

The saturated, heavy, morning heat
Permeates my skin
And chokes up on my neck,
While coffee does nothing to quench my inconsolable thirst.
the prompt was to write a poem using the opening line from another piece of literature. I chose the opening line from Shirley Anne Grau's, "Fever Flower". I might add on to this later, but this is it for now.

can me girl one more time

I'll break your nose

call me ma'am

might punch your face

feel something inside

doesn't feel right

I'm so done with it

might do something drastic

not to be dramatic

don't call me dear

I'm not your love

stop with the sweetheart and darling

silly you

next time I won't bite my tongue

and you'll have a dark ****** bruise
