I wonder will I ever paint the page
the way Helios paints the skies,
His brush stroke smoothing the sharp
edge of night, erasing the darkness,
Lush blades of grass crying dew drop tears
as the horizon sets ablaze in vivid screams
of orange spilling between the
dank scent of nature waking
tiny birds with tickling rays
caressing Gaia into life
and for a brief moment there
is only her, only nature,
only beauty and my soul breathes…
For a fleeting moment space was mine
designed beyond sight
Vulnerability of heart, takes flight
as thought and words soon fly.
If asked, I’d sit three seats to the left
Somewhere between here and mars
I’d converse silently, just me and the stars
and declare my wishes to skies of dark.
It wouldn’t be the first time, nor the last.
Those twinkling lights have long known your name,
In twilight battles to drive the devil insane
I tell Selene my secrets
I’m not sure she hears and never certain it matters…
I’m not always sure anything matters Living seems only to flatter
We’re specks trying to etch our names into the infinite
spending lifetimes searching
hopelessly for the lost scent of a love we once had
And in the grander scale of things
I hear the howling winds they drag me from my slumber, Trees screaming, leaves pleading, debris flying, Rain falling, heavy, denting, slamming on windowpane, Where now is Selene among this raging storm, I search for calm and find only the descent of crimson mist, I search for light… But the soul craves darkness Which has long arrived, I search for hope but Pandora was left astray, unlocked… I hear the startling call of objects dragged through the storms mouth, teeth bared, blood dripping, I hear the emptiness of atoms the raging storms of nature the familiarity of night sat alone, as insomnia Kisses away the shadows that haunt.
I dive down deep swimming between the throbbing waves as the ocean embraces my curves. Lose myself in the silent pull of Poseidon’s love as he moves gently through my wild mane of flaming hair and there deep within his kingdom I pause, feel the suffocation of desire drowning my soul, igniting my spirit, the burn of love within my chest that beats in search of rhythm. In search of you and eyes I long to swim in. The ocean kisses my porcelain skin caressing my naked liberation… Your ocean beats within my soul.
