On that peaceful summer day
When I thought I was lost
You appeared in front of me
Your piercing eyes like frost

You wanted me to stop my tears
With the space between us vast
I desired to see the human face
That hid behind your mask

I tried to see past your disguise
Though you only hid
You told me that you'd disappear
Should I ever touch your skin

As the years went slowly on and on
I longed to feel your touch
You gave to me your only mask
And kissed it out of love

The thought of summer hurts my chest
You disappeared near dawn
It was an accident that stole my heart
And we hugged till you were gone.
Sorry, dear friends. This is a reference, but I think you may be able to derive your own meaning if you wanted. ;)

The wind was knocked out of me,
At four a.m.
It tore from my corpse,
Landing upon the ledge.
It leapt-
Skimming over the blackened sky,
Drowning in endless alleyways,
It was straining out-
Towards you,
And away from the yellow anxieties,
Of a marooned mind,
An unsettled soul,
This exposed heart.
In an instant-
It glazed across your lips,
It fell beneath the depths-
Into the opals of your eyes,
It stirred in the gentle flow of your
Lungs,
Pulled in the rhythms of your
Pulse,
Burning holes in your blood stream,
It ached towards the center of your chest,
It arrived at 4:01-
In your cardiac cavity,
And finally,
Finally,
It rests.

I stand before you naked and bare,
Vulnerable and scared
With trembling hands, and shaky breath
Because you gingerly stripped me
Of the armor I had long ago melded to my being.
You carefully untied the intricate knots
That had tangled my chaotic mind.
You skillfully unfastened the clasps,
Which held together my crippled heart.
You watched as my insecurities
Fell to the ground in a pile around my ankles.

I stand before you naked and bare
With trembling hands, and shaky breath
Because the impassioned stare your eyes posses
Pierces the façade that I had shrouded myself with.
The softness of your caressing lips
Comforts the exhaustion of fleeing love.
The heat of your searching hands
Melts the ice that encases my thoughts.
The pressure of your firm body
Pushes away the worries of acceptance.

I stand before you naked and bare
Because your love has set me free from myself.
Under the blanket
Of the cloak of night
I tended my garden
I reached for the seeds of the stars of night
And drew them down to Earth
To relish them forever
Sweet fruits, apples, and pomegranates
And rose buds in bloom
Permeated the air like sweet incense
I fed myself of the beautiful trees
Which grew too numerous to count
But nightmares arose from deep within
When I slumbered beneath the tree
I dreamt of falling
Fleeing to the ocean's depths
My bones were brittle
And my face was covered
In filth and stench
From roving in the desert
My hair was matted
And my eyes bulged from their sockets
My tears were running dry
I did not deserve this torment

~

So I sank and saught the truth

~

The bottoms were pleasantly beautiful
I befriended monsters there
And remember the seaweed
Toying with my hair
In time, I arose as Mother of the Sea,
As Venus
Yet another garden was claimed by me
And I harkened to their call
To come to know
This destiny of mine

~

I swelled in the gardens of others
Until I needed to return
When the student is ready
Their teacher appears
And I am a willing student of life!

~

That's when I saw him from afar
And my world would change forever
I peeked at him through the willows
He was shining iridescence itself
I've met others like him before
If I knew what was in store
Would I still approach?
Knowing me, probably!
He whispered that I was a wanted woman
He's the first that saw my soul as true
Everyone else misunderstood
Or feared my intentions
Towards them
While I hungered for fruits
I could never receive again

~

I am barred from the land by the river
Why would He do this to me?
The Universe's eyes aren't shut
And have 20/20 vision
His servant always maintained sure distance
From his most prized possession

~

He gave me his cloak
A garment of protection
The dark night
And elevated me thusly
I took on another form
As beautiful as any
I vowed not to harm his Master's garden
~

So I tended mine
With stars of night
And rain and snow
With bountiful deer and squirrels
If I knew the curses thrown
Would I have stayed in the sea
If I knew that ruling the skies of night
Would bring this upon me
I would still stay where I am today
I how this seventy tomes seven

~

My garden bears fruit gloriously
But I long to bring honor
To my garden
By making his mandrakes
My own

~

All hail to these
Three times three

~

The first pear I tasted
The first apple that fell
The first time I glowed
And knew the Never - Uttered

~
... the longing to be like Him! ...
.... the pang to be His mandrake!....
          The love we once shared
Please, God
Give me one more
Bite!
~
Lord, what have I done?
He raised me up
And I dragged him down
Now we must spend eternity this way
In foxholes and carcasses
Always dying to relive the recent past
When morning glories were my favorite flower

~

... he shielded me
And I was cast away from the Garden
And it's fruits forever
I wander the desert once again
But this time
I am not alone

~

We roamed...
He offered me a desert flower
And bade me to plant
From it sprang a river stream  
To sustain our coagulating blood
It did not satisfy
We fell
And in each other's eyes we found the key
To drown out exile' s realities
I saw the sun's rays in his eyes again
The dark nights will not be gloomy anymore
The Name of God is no longer a four letter word
We fell down
Again and again
And the more we fell
The more, before our eyes
This garden
Our garden
Grew

~

We tended our garden
Until then

~

Contemplating on Jehovah
Grieves my heart
Until it rips open and I spill my blood
The animals retreat
My plants for
Because my blood has been spilled
Innocent blood
Within my own garden
My lover has left
My night lamp
To become the hunt
And perish
For the unspoken
Uncherishef
.  The defiled .

We will never share our garden
Again evermore

So look at, look at how she lays
her eyes so soft, like quiet days
and how I wish, she was mine
but we've run out of time

Oh Sarah, you've given up on dreams
and fell in love with rocks
but don't give up on me
Oh Sarah, I've waited for so long
now I can't believe your slippin away
my love for you is so, oh Sarah

how can I make it right
when nothing will ever do
until you tell me that your mine
my dreams just won't come true
and I have a dozen dreams
only want you here by me
don't leave

it was a dark dance
of an immovable body
as she was taken by the throat
death causing stupendous distortions
and an addiction to a lunar landscapes
somewhere between smothering
and seeing through a miraculous inner eye
deepening her sense of nothingness
as if pickled in a jar, and suspended in
formaldehyde
like a cloud you can not fall through
where there is no reason for anything
and everything
moves out from a veiled corridor
an innerness, like a one-sided face

her  panties wet with the scent of fear
she fell through the earth
into the infernal arms of
Hades

his kisses like eyes

wind is my friend
it drives me anywhere
I dance in the air because of it
or a little girl pick me and blow me
where I fell, that's where my new home is
I grow anywhere
leaving old story
build a new story
along with the wind that will always faithfully take me anywhere
roamed the earth

Thank god of all the assholes
I had the misfortune to love
I never fell in love with a poet.

I imagine the pain ingrained
When his texts and his affections
Have left
But his words remain
Sultry and stinging
To wound again and again
And remind that he loves you not
That he loves another
Or that it was never anything real
To begin with.
Could have been worse.
