epiphany



it finally dawned on me
the answer


and, like watching a film in reverse, it
made sense before
it ever happened...


and after it all
happened


we met... and we knew
(each other)


it couldn't work...
there was a reason
(there had to be)


but then you asked
and i answered


and we were
truly
(godammit)
tried to be


flying (we became a comet)


elated~


the taste - we had
both promised
this would happen...
and we did


      deja vu
                               echoing
lives past


words words words
countless strings of seaweed
in our sea - i resent them
every day


games and twisted
tongues and lies
i hate them all


before words
we were


perfect


and we still are


and I hum in my
silence, my eyes
shining, a million
broken hearts


were my own


i mourned for
every lost
possibility of us
and now
              looking back


i see

the seeker


feeling my way in the dark
not afraid but 
...apprehensive 

senses heightened 
hyper 
aware
i feel a heartbeat

i hear tormented screams 
from behind doors
far away
yet feel safe somehow
as long as 
i follow 
the drum of the heart

we are all made of stars
cosmic dust whirling 
pulsing with life

i love sensing 
chemical reactions
i smell sweat and
the heat is tangible

running my fingers along the walls
i realize they are alive and breathing

oh.. i giggle to myself and feel my surroundings tremble in reply
it seems i've fallen down another rabbit hole




fuego

i was never able to resist
playing with fire

staring so deep
investigating oranges, yellows and blues
deeper and deeper
until you feel a disturbance in your whole field of view

you see back through time... 
how fire kept man alive
something that commands respect
while it can warm you 

it's relieving to know 
i have no control
tie me up
throw me in
watch me burn
