We work together
Not like peas in a pod
But like sunbeams on water
And everything sinks to the bottom

the first time we sleep together is a disaster. I spend crucial moments wringing your excess from beneath your skin, watching your nerves shiver from their bones. you leave, and neither of us finish what we started.
we catapult through our next meetings with uncoordinated dis-ease. I am canvassing the static heartbeat behind your eyes each time we collide, and you are always ready to lose yourself to the surreptitious glow behind mine. if this is forbidden, then draw the blinds and vacillate inside that crooked smile.
you are too obscure for me to let you go. I decide this with a drink or three under my tongue and a hand that isn't yours on my waist. I stumble through the night: wake up in a strange bed and retch in a sterile bathroom that tells me to pack away my bile and clear out, I do not belong here. I listen.

where will you be
when the day slips
into the arms of
where i always
seem to be;
between my rooftop
and the sky,
the velvet overflow
if you are close
to share this
I’m floating right on the edge,
Yearning for our sweet velvet concoction of reality,
With the vision walls lined with burgundy
I still hover over the subconscious,
But not there completely…
I’m still encased in black with golden specks,
Desperately seeking, reaching,
For this dream to drown me.

weightless i glide
swimming in the wake
of diamond tailed fishes
that lead me on,
i will find you
on the edge
of our shared
for i can feel you;
your searching hands
a translucent pane,
its kaleidoscope refraction
waiting to be punctured
by the meeting
of our outstretched
We had ForeverI still remember the day you died;We had Forever by DrippingWords
you grasped my hand and whispered
“If this is our forever, I’d
want time to run backward.”
Your life blood was all over my hands.
I tried to find the words
to express my demands
at Death – all of my anger,
but your life slipped away like sand.
I wish our forever was longer.

locked in a lucid dream, daring to fly.
A pale pearl orb floats, frigid,
soaking up the stars. The misplaced moon
begs to be returned -- raw,
impassive. I whisper whimsy,
treading thoughts, cracked glass, carefully.
