#170 (surrender)

warm bodies

cool breezes

we battled the heat

losing

surrendered to sweaty sheets

making

velvet darkness and

the clear sky

our blanket

#149 (drowning my fears)

the paths between light and dark

glowing in shades of blue and yellow

I drowned my fears in deep sleep

stuck them to a fairytale

I made up from some restless bits

meeting some monsters on the way

sometimes all it takes is

a frame to collect my scattered thoughts

to herd them back into

this fleeting focal point

I trapped them in a blinking box,

tricking myself into

the illusion of control

#81 (fragile tiny flutterlings)

silver threads

fell out his face

his eyes

were red

ablaze

wild horses

rode along his spine

sly beetles bit

his heart


surrendered

to the dark embrace

of heavy dreams

he lied

in slumber’s swamp

and resting

on his chest

there was

a cup of finest

china


partaking

in some dreamish glories

his feet were twitching idly

and in between

two shallow breaths

a butterfly so lightly

like early morning’s finest ray

it flew into the white

within that finest

smooth embrace

it fluttered and

then died


dawn

threw his rosy veil

and soon

said hero’s eyes awoke

the dusty cup it fell

and broke

within the dust

some trace of gold

two silken wings

the story told

of queens and kings

and fragile

tiny flutterlings
