Explosive

Explosive

Moonbeams flicker through the fog
Conducting a quiet symphony
Of sighs and weary goodbyes
Last call
Lights out
Yawns stretch and silence falls
And with it the heads of lovers collapse onto shoulders
Dominos caving in on each other
Neatly origami folded figures flopped together like
overworked dolls retired to bedroom shelves.
Nestled and nooked, tucked and together
The containment of this company
Highlights my loose ends
My anxious domino chain
My carelessly crumpled paper
My messy room and barren shelves
This ever ticking
potential explosiveness of being
One

Some Days

This post is part of the “Blogging from A-Z April Challenge”! The “S” themed inspiration for today is “some days.” Enjoy!

Some Days

Some days

The orchestra finishes playing

The circus leaves town

The theatre empties

Clouds cover the stars

And in all the languages in the world

I cannot find one beautiful word

Or simply one I understand

 

Some days

I don’t want to deal with love

With it’s paperwork and taxes

How much to give

How much I should get back

When the ones I love don’t reciprocate

And my outward nonchalance seeps in

To save me

 

Some days

Stretch like holes in sentences

That hang unpunctuated

Unfinished

Like this rant in my head

A discrepancy of a locked in soul

I wait, holding these beating hearts

That I gamble all away for yours

 

It’s not how you should play the game

But

Some days

The rulebook tells me

To play without rules

Some days

I realize we make it all up

As we stumble along

Reminder

This post is part of the “Blogging from A-Z April Challenge”! The “R” themed inspiration for today is “reminder.” Enjoy!

Reminder

Locked behind thick black doors
His words were painted into her breath
And like watercolor
Mixed and spread
Seeping through the faintest
Cracks in the gates
Escaping into blanched landscapes
Far beyond her reach
And she remained
Waiting for the strange new hue
To reach his skin and color him
With realization
That he had left her behind
Chained to his memory
While he walked free.

In This Kaleidoscopic Kingdom

This post is part of the “Blogging from A-Z April Challenge”! The “K” themed inspiration for today is…well, the letter “K”! Nothing like exploring that exclusive little section of the dictionary that is home to knights and kings and a variety of Australian marsupials. Enjoy!

 

In This Kaleidoscopic Kingdom

 

In this kaleidoscopic kingdom

Kindred are we

A koala and a kangaroo

Kicking Karate and killer Kung-fu

Kleptomaniacs stealing keen kisses in the kitchenette

While the kettle knocks knowingly

And the kittens kindle kerfuffles,

Kidnapping and parading our knickers

As kitschy cat kimonos.

 

Coming up tomorrow on the A-Z Challenge: ‘L’ is for “LOST”.

The Ground

This post is part of the “Blogging from A-Z April Challenge”! The “G” themed inspiration for today is “ground.” Enjoy!

The Ground:

In this world of persistent gravity
You tell me you are not falling in love
But floating in it
That your heart beats so fast and strong
It suspends you like the wings of a hummingbird

Still, I cannot imagine your immunity to
The rush of the rain to the ground
The pull that tears the avalanche down the mountain
The shrugging swallow that awaits men who jump
From bridges

With our frail mortality
Our crippled humanity
Amidst the weight of our flaws
We cling together as we fall

And I cannot believe that the love we create
Is loftier than the poor, beaten ground
To which
All

Things

Tumble.

(Coming up tomorrow on The A-Z Challenge: ‘H’ is for “Hipster”)
