Buckshot Has A Voice

Your words…

Are your weapons of choice

Who knew buckshot had a voice…

You’ve made sure the shrapnel is deeply buried

A cellular pain that must be carried

How much more can I take…

Before I bend so far, I snap and break?

I’m out of my head tonight

I’ve conceded the fight

But the question’s remain

In my mind, they are a permanent stain

The what if’s?

The how’s?

The when’s?

The where’s?

Impossibility has punctured my tranquility

It’s needling need…a junkie’s disability

My heart-burns with destructive despair

And no amount of antacid

Can clean it’s toxic air

Right now, nothing is placid

A Cup With No Lid

How can a thumb crush?

Pressing mine against the window

I’m looking at the world on the other side

It’s making me so cold in the middle…

My eyes close on a deep breath

As my thumb depresses the up

My spirit is in such a shaking rush…

I’m standing on one leg like a pink flamingo

So pretty to look at…even though I’m nibbling at my hide

I wanna get high and lost, and that’s not a riddle

A light shone down yesterday, it was a little death

I tried to catch it, but I didn’t have a lid on my cup

Pain

If I could take your pain I would.

I wish my love I could.

To think of you hurting so.

Saddens me, pulls me low. 

I wish upon all the stars.

That you my love know no harm.

That if someone, pain must see.

That it overlooks you and comes for me.

If I could take your pain I would.

I’d bare it for you if I could.

I Know My Words Bruised

The words bruised

Squeezing their interrogation

And their love suffocated

Fixated and fused…

This needless ablation

That they both hated

Their pain was Edible

As they feasted to the bone

Gnashing, snarling, gnawing

Until another bite became unbearable

And they both began to writhe and moan

Each fearing the other was withdrawing

Tears traced the horrible possibilities

Of one without the other

Of their forever becoming their never

Until their hearts had enough and slammed together

Exposing their fallibilities

Revealing their forgotten bond to one another

That nothing and no one could ever sever:

They were life partners that shared the same cardiac tether

One simply could not live without the other

Stretched and Snapped

A cyclone had been silently brewing

Spinning and stretching

Until it finally snapped

~

I was a perfect (w)hole

But now my insides have come out

And I’m pouring into my panties

~

Now, every day is a new multiple choice test

That makes us both Grit our teef

Because I keep circling the wrong answer

~

No, you! No, you!

Do you? Do you?

Will you? Will you?

No. No.

Yes. Yes.

Just hold me Daddy, scoop my parts

Let the melting of our joined hearts

And the alchemy we’ve sparked

Bind us together stronger than ever before

I love you Daddy, and it is unconditional.

Here Comes My Love

What have you done to me?

Here it comes…

Here comes my love again

Splitting my plump and juicy

Folding me into the position

What have you done to me?

Here it comes…

Here comes my love again

Eruptions bend me like a rainbow

And my details become the devil

What have you done to me?

Here it comes…

Here comes my love again

Fire has ignited my beauty

Burning me at the hands of this magician

What have you done to me?

Here it comes…

Here comes my love again

In the darkness my singed wings glow

And in this lightness I revel
