Sometimes the sun comes by & shows me how to love

Sometimes

The sun

Comes by &

Shows me how

To love

Again

Oh star

I know

&

You’re not

Wrong

To tell

Me so

Erased

They had

Before been

Torn off walls

Crumpled

Thrown into

The waste

Paper basket

~○~

After she

Held on

For too many moments

You couldn’t call them

Moments anymore

~○~

When you

Believe in something

When you

Believe in something

When you

Believe in something

~○~

The turning planets

Spheres from time

Shaped

Forming Bodies

Space

~○~

They wore the absence

Of light proudly

Wearing cloths sewn

Like the winds

Accessories

Fashioned

From

Meteors

From clouds

Falling stars

Drawing

Themselves

Once more

Vast through

The cerulæn sky

Like magic

They appear

Note to self: In one breath imagine space

Note to self

Dear one

You live

By sending yourself

To another place

A tower to space

With miles of cable

And an elevator

You touch

The ground

And the sky

All in one

Breath

From a collection of poetry past (edited).

One feeling after another

Wandering in

The dawn

With

Unsuspecting

Disbelief

As spilt milk

Cries itself

To sleep

& picks

Itself up

A starting

Over

One feeling

After another

Where is your anarchy?

Good morning from here dear blogosphere. 💜 Resharing this new work. I’m very pleased with how it turned out. Wherever you enjoy it from, I hope this song finds you poetical. 💜

Is it

For you

To decide

What I am

For you to

Assign me

An ancient

Rhyme

I don’t read

Old stories

For truth

My book

Is the new

~☆~

I’m not made

To hold you

While

You

Drop

Me

What did you

Expect of me

While I was […]

Where is your anarchy?

Not this

This 
Not this
This overbearing
Sense
Of that thing
You can’t
Quite name
About it
Under a clear blue sky
You are not clear 
Like the transparency
Of the celestial screen

This
Not this

Cloudy
Swirling
Repeat
Repetition of
That
Indelible feeling
Ink of
The impression
Of
5 things you thought you already knew
The article reads
About
This
Not this
Using words
You wish
Weren’t there
You read
You write
Without words
Because
They don’t 
Mean 
Anything 
Anymore
This
Not this
No
The
Unfathomable
Realization
Comes over you
In waves
Phantasmagoric
Air of stark grey
Melancholia
Eyes making
Nights
Then days
Words won’t
Cure
Notes won’t
Sing
This
Not this
Nothing
Can fix
This
Not this

The trees eat the suns eat the trees: an other-worldly song

We bike

Sparkling roads

Under trees

Eating breeze

The trees eat

The suns eat the trees

Leaves

Flowers in seas

Afternoons

Meet the moons

The trees eat

The suns eat the trees

In evenings

Our bones

Laugh

With notes

All their own

The trees eat

The suns meet the trees
