Silent BreathMy family sleeps peacefully as a silent breath slithers into my home.
Fear chills my thick blood as it slowly moves closer.
It stops outside my door.
The muffled breathing turns to a low, hollow snicker.
The door cries, as it swings open.
The hallway shines a light of darkness onto me.
I try to hide myself in the sheets
But it knows I'm here.
The figure stands high in the doorway and there it waits for me
I can't help but walk towards him
With each step my heart pounds louder.
In his face I can only make out the eyes of a dead man.
Hidden in rags and miserable
Empty eyes untouched with emotion stare into me.
Sweat drips down my brow.
The stranger tries to grab me
Screams pour out of my soul
With every screech from my lips
His face brightens
My pain increases its hideous smile
I try to crawl away
Calmly he moves toward me.
Something glimmers out of his fist.
A silver blade pierces the night.
The door shuts and he remains quiet.
Only his steady breathing can be heard.
Death has arrived
An Everlasting HeartI awake with a blackened heart
A reminder of pain and tears
A permanent visual memory of suffering
This mark will lead me back to forgotten times
Times that are no longer joyous
This is a tattoo of my own destroyed emotions
The ink drives itself lower
Attaches to my very soul
It is buried far beneath my flesh and to remove it would leave me empty
I have been scarred by beauty
And cursed by love
I hope it will get easier
I walk along with the crowd with my heart painted over
Covered by a smile
A smile for my once perfect life
The dark is easier to mask
But a tattoo on the kidney needs time to filter out the pain
I remove my shirt only to find the mark gone
The black is now skin
The hurt no longer follows me
I am whole- but a piece is still missing
On the ground is my heart
What I longed to rip from my very chest
I am free
I hold my black heart
I don't want to be alone
Without her, I only have grief
I put my black heart back onto my skin and let it slowly drift back into my m
dead dog julyI.
the summer heat lays limp in the city’s lap,
breathing long oppressive breaths.
it does not even lift its lolling head
to bark out hoarse indignancy
when a strange man brings the mail.
there might be heavy rain today,
brought by some swollen, murmuring cloud.
the world will whirl and howl,
then settle down,
to die a little more.
o, quickly, love,
press your back against the wall in fear
as the universe spreads her arms and
shuts her eyes
and starts to summon the end of all things.
come with me
to the place of windows full of speechless afternoon
hot windy whispers of half-formed solutions and resolutions,
sweltering sunlit meadows we’ll wander and then forget.
o quickly, love,
let’s to the season of forgetting
and unwind all of our harshest memories
and fill the universe’s mouth
with mute cotton.
i’ll whisper these words to you some evening
with all my exigency in the hand i rest on your arm—
