The solar blue

That flicker of evasive
Contentedness enraptured
By a sadness extending
In a line that never ends
Eternal romanticized
Sorrow
Tomorrow
Begins again

This week you told me
What to say
I did it
& regretted it right away

Telephone call
Melon call ee
Ahhhhhhh

I don’t follow orders
I’m not a fascist

Climbing up the
Ladder of bias
You let me fall
Then blamed me
After all

Except my skin
Is old like roses now
Scarred with the
Same version of fall

It wasn’t my fault after all
But that doesn’t mean
I don’t still think it is

Lies pies ties fries
Goodbyes
So many goodbyes

Your eyes aren’t cold
Your mood
Spin cycle
More volatile

I am done with
Giving up on myself
I hope you understand
The lyrics of
The song I sing
The one you like
Then hate again

I’m sorry I am
A complicated
Fairy orchid berry
Once upon a

Temporeality

Please meet me
In the solar blue
I’ll be happy
& maybe
I’ll be enough
For you

Fairies & phantoms

~○~

In the quiet

Of a

Still

Solitary

Moment

You think

About

Movement

Anyway

Because

This is how

Stillness

Evades

Consciousness

~○~

Always things to do

That’s what quiet says

~○~

Fairies & phantoms

Play in

The gardens

Of possibility

~○~

Procrastion spring

Before

Dream nights

Of midsummer

~○~

Waiting for

The moment

Breath taken

~○~

Moving summer

Stories

Fantastical

Things &

Really real

Things

~○~

Where ghosts

Play &

Fairies sing

On clouds

This is

The life

We try

Being in

~○~

Here where

Stories come

To life

Animated

We live by

Our scribes

Stillness

Becomes

Movement

Comes to life

~○~
