Literature
The Brightening
Today I forgot my reply,
and left a moment hanging between
spider-web strings,
sticking.
Tell me,
why is this ground
aching like a bee-stung arm?
Why is my bed
writhing like a scared millipede?
Dragonfly,
shed your ever-changing colours
and make up your mind.
So iridescent, so attractive
but you buzz by so fast that we don't
try to catch you.
There was a noise in the hallway
last Saturday morning,
very early,
of someone racing
to a patient doorway.

Next to Fall
There is an end to every earth where
the black rifts gorge upon the
waterfalls of ending life.
No one wants to be
the next to fall.
I'll see you on
the other side, the
Mother's womb. Birthed
by nature, born of lust and
sinful dust. Phoenix from the ashes.

Dragonfly
My true colours were larval,
when I was only concerned with
laughter.
No longer will I
possess the personality of a dragonfly's
back, iridescent colours changing every moment.
Forget looking perfect.
Only when the makeup congregates
in the creases of my eyelids
will I be seeing
perfect.

April Showers
It's going to be hot today -
I can feel the sunlight
biting at my cheekbones
and I feel deceived
by low-lying clouds
that rose too early.
But when I feel
last night in the grass,
brushing against by calves,
I welcome
April.

Literature
Fresh
Cigarette smoke
is a breath of fresh air
in the city where
plants, processing the pollution
fall into a premature
autumn.
And there's black tar in the bay:
fish rotting on the waves
are picturesque
in the city.

Literature
Night
In the silence of the night
there is nothing I can see.
Though stars pierce the blackness,
like me, they are far away.
There is nothing I can see -
the sun is hiding somewhere cold,
but though there seems to be no light
inside there must be something.
Though stars pierce the blackness
their light is dim and insignificant
and if I continue walking this road
I'll end up hurting worse, somehow.
Like me, they are far away
I am little but an empty shell.
I only wish I could feel, long ago
you stealing all the life from me.

Something of Mine
   The last dregs of day were slowly draining over Widowsvale, throwing the mansion on its outskirts into complete shadow. Its black silhouette loomed over the town as a young lady hobbled up its driveway, a man following close by.
   "It's bigger than I remember," said the lady, gazing up at the house.
   "Well, your parents were never ones for the simple life," laughed the man.
   "I know," she whispered "but it's good to be back."
   The man had walked her up the front stairs of the mansion, and then, after she assured him she was ok, he had kissed her and left. She was now writing a letter in her library - part of her enormous inheritance.
Melissa,
I got out of hospital today! Finally! Even though this mansion gives me the creeps, it sure beats the hospital. I'll have some cleaning to do over the next few weeks, cobwebs cover everything - perhaps I should have hired a housekeeper.

Missing You
You've left me
parched

My heart's rivers have bled out!
Skin fractures and splits,

to settle the dust.
