Insomnia

For many nights since the first

I have been wide awake

Too scared to enter the unconscious

Too scared to leave the light

But it wasn’t the monsters under the bed

Just the ones in my covers

That kept me up all night

And made me fear the dark

my articles, poems etc., poems etc.

A barter of souls

Feet stained red

Celebrating negotiated love

Standing on the edge

Beyond all caging fences

Above the skyline

 

The cold cement

In an open embrace

Offering a calm conclusion

To her buffering spirit

 

And so hesitantly she left

Her grey house

Now his

For a home promising to be hers

Till after the end

 

Left floating away

Her arrival sounded by the breaking

Of her once radiant will

Releasing her from

The forced barter

 

A new lease

Now signed in her name

my articles, poems etc.

Rain

As her auburn locks

Unfurled unabashedly

Lusting the fresh water

Falling like pellets

Which cured

The sparse lips

And miserable eyes

Changing color

As she flew

And danced

To the sound of

Ambrosia being poured

Into her mortal soul

When your eyes

Pierced her heart

And joined her merriment

With the clouds

And Electric sky

Her giggle thunderous
