Pretty Little Fool

e56658dee65a6f987b6bfff05b8ac8dd

Some say I am a fool

A foolish little girl

That I live in a dreamland

High in the clouds

 

Some say I am a fool

A foolish little girl

Too young and naive to know

Sheltered from the world

 

Some say I am a fool

A foolish little girl

With feet above the ground

And a head beneath the sand

 

Some say I am a fool

A foolish little girl

Who doesn’t know real life

The pain and deceit of people

Do you have a Plan B?

Sprinkle on satin petals and

    be Reborn in my solitude

No darkness can cover you from my eyes

                                                Open.

I’m breathing for you.

                Shallow disregard,

They are blind to the beauty of your spirit

                Free me.

                                                Taste me.

You are imprinted on my mind

The heaviness of your question

                                bleeds into my heart

A new dawn to be your Plan B

                Leap, you say…

Fragrant Memories (first draft)

Wisps of fragrant memories,
comfortable homesickness,
wrapped in the embrace of the chill.
Shiver, sweet child, for the desired recalls you smell
What will come of this
heartbroken happiness?
Lie, if you must.
Lie with your mind, adultery in hand and awaken the spirit of a child.
Your blissful ignorance
will comfort you into
a consuming meditation.
Beware, the blood calls.
Unwrap you mind and hand
your thoughts over to the vulnerability of your destiny.
It is you they choose.
Child of mine, be lulled by the serenade
that surrounds
The knowledge can kill but hope
will awaken with a cry
Be not forgotten or begotten to the mystery.
Thrive within yourself in order to burst forth
from slumber.
Be brave, my phoenix, and rise to your role;
Let not that which you fear neither consume nor destroy you.
Heed the greatness you carry and
remember all of whom carry this power that follows
ever-watching
ever-growing
ever-enveloping
like a forest covering her saplings from the wind.

Go forth, my lovely, begin your steps of prophecy.

An Audience of One

Happy C.V. moves the legs,

jumping sheep turn to waves.

Salty, sand-filled;

the mind is pregnant with a dreamless sleep,

The safety of an alloy friend.

interrupts the soft glow of the new year.

Drinking Jack,

watching God give light.
