Color Me #SpeakPoetry

[audio https://audioboo.fm/boos/2329345-color-me.mp3]

 

I gave you

A silhouette

A shadow of

A drawing of

The heart

That beats

Within me

To fill

Freely

To rend me

As you see me

And you

You

You color

Me deadly

In blacks

And greys

With no shade

Entirely

Abject

Of light

You paint me

As you see me

But you paint

Yourself

As well

For all I gave

Was a silhouette

An abstract

Portrait

For you

To fill

As you

And only you

Will


Lantern Light #fieryverse

[audio https://audioboo.fm/boos/2329299-lantern-light.mp3]

 

A lost child

Enters his forest

Drawn on

By lantern light

By hope of warmth

She encounters

The devil himself

A beastly form

Worn and torn

Snarling

Alone

Timidly

She approaches

Extends a small

Soft hand

He twitches

Turns

His eyes flare

And burn

But the child

Does not shy away

She instead

Caresses

His pelt

Meets his gaze

Selflessly

Welcoming

Her death

In the

Lantern light

Of his eyes

 


Emerald Mystery #fieryverse

[audio https://audioboo.fm/boos/2300049-emerald-mystery.mp3]

 

Kings and queens

Of the mounds

A mighty race

Lost underground

Shifting

Through

The history

Of the vast green

Velds of the Éire

The people

Of the Sidhe

Live on

Unfaded

From history

Forever sheathed

In emerald fire

In mystery

On the

Emerald Isle


Little Boat – #TercetThursday

[audio https://audioboo.fm/boos/2164866-little-boat.mp3]

 

Little boat caught in a whitecap of sea,

Swept from safety of harbor, hearth and home,

Cast out to the tempest, to drown in foam.

 

Violent the tides that crash down on thee.

Harsh the winds that so cruely tear your sails.

Little boat, no peace for you; storms prevail.

 

Each moment spent lost an eternity —

Each crest and crush and influx, a deluge,

Which tosses you further from sound refuge.

 

Bitter the waves that cast thou far from me,

As on my lonely shore I stand vigil.

My nightly observance, my ritual.

 

For you, little boat, crucial cargo bear:

My heart, my soul, my every prayer.

Return him to me, to my loving care…


#Haikuesday

Yesterday’s collection of haiku on Twitter. #haikuesday

 

1.

Dearest wind, my love

Blow your song again for me

Sweep me back to you

 

2.

Gentle breezes make

The trees shiver in pleasure

Warmth spreads to their roots

 

3.

The stream is giving

The river is a release

The ocean knows all

 

4.

A mountain born of

Shattered pieces of old stone

Each pebble matters

 

5.

Smoke rises, clearly

While fires hide from sight, beyond

The far horizon

 

6.

Fields of amber sigh

Soft rustling as they reach high

For the blue of sky

 

7.

Water seeks crevice

In stone to widen and own

Seeping deep in home

 

8.

Ever present soul,

Which guards and girds this world whole;

Oh trees, speak to me!

 

9.

Stone, water, ripples.

Susurrus of cool soft flow,

Lullaby of streams.

 

10.

Upthrust, molten rock

Scars as it creates the earth;

In fire, world’s rebirth.

 

11.

Clouds pass overhead

Soaring through the sea of sky

Misty submarines

 

12.

Black birds in black trees

Roosting upon burnt branches

Mourners of wild fire

 

13.

Life as we know it

Challenged constantly, for we

Know nothing really


In The Now – a Sonnet

The future enshrouded in shadow; unknown
The past beckons, singing its lost love songs
Lessons past, never right nor ever wrong
Lessons in our path may yet help us grow

Winds of chance and fate by which we are blown
To the past mistakes, to whom we belong
To our further estates for which we long
Souls cry for either side; Our love unsewn

In regards to future or past, alas
What is meant to be is still yet unseen
Whether we’ve learned, or still have much to do
Comes to each of us, comes to me and you
In each such moment, both exist in dreams
Our pieces, our memories come to pass

Thanks to Jack @for_my_Juliet for inspiring me to do a #SonnetSunday
Hope it’s up to snuff. ^__^

Written in the Petrarchan sonnet styling.


Timeless

A collection of micropoetry I wrote on Twitter, finally collected into one piece. Some additions, revisions, and corrections.

*********************

He was timeless
Strong and slightly severe
With the deepest, knowing eyes
At first glance, she knew
She was helpless

She was both dark and fair
Pale soft skin, smoldering hair
And a sorrow held within brown eyes
She caught his eye
He was ensnared

Her eyes met his
Both entranced
By one another
Both romanced
By each other
Two souls
Connected
Like this

To him she was the light
He was the light to her
Both shone onto each other
Into each other
Banishing the darkest night
As they fell
So did their shadows

They examined their fears
Soaked in their tears
Bathed with each other
In dark shared desires
Hungrily they fed the fires

While their pain they stroked
Their passions were evoked
In whispers and moans
And deep muffled groans
They lit up the world
They now shared

He and she
Held tightly
Sweet words exchanged
Lives rearranged
They fit and they bonded
Their love resounded

But even echoes fade

Burned too bright
In their endless night
Both left charred
And with new scars
Surprised by new seeping wounds
And fresh blood they’d wrung

They fought to rekindle
But love quickly dwindled
More strangers now
Than they’d been
When they’d met
Love so strong, now gone
They wept

Parting in tears
With newborn fears
Unsure of themselves
And their place
In the world
Now frightened
Of love unfurled

~FIN


Twitter 2-10-14

A few of the things I’ve written today. If you don’t follow me on Twitter, you should. Right now, it’s where I do my best writing. 🙂
 
 
 
I can’t help but wonder
If love is worth it
Hearts ripped open, torn asunder.
Why do we take that risk?
For moments like this?

Love hurts.

Love can be
such a tenuous thing
And will break
With an audible
“TING”
If not bound over and over
Steel threads twining
Ever binding
You
to
Me.

How is one
As broken as I
As shattered and fucked up
Supposed to deal
Supposed to heal
With all this mire and muck?

I always hope it’s not
As bad as it seems
Though the darkest thoughts
Haunt my dreams

Daydreams aren’t always good.

You’ve broken my spell
And my walls fell
I invited you in,
Smiling
Take what you will
I’ll love you still
Through the end of me
Dying.

Antiseptic hospitals
Cabs to call.

Medicine that makes it worse
That’s the curse.

The gauntlet
Again
Tossed.

Someone else take it? …

Tonight has been tough,
But through it I’ll rough.
I will grin
And bear it
With you I would ride
Every tide.
I love you –
You’re worth it.

I’ll never understand
How anyone can
So brutally
Intentionally
And with a clear plan
Destroy their fellow man

I sing songs to myself
My own personal wealth
That I would share with you.
Whoever you are, however far
Let me sing to you, long and true

Wish I knew how to heal you
Wish I knew just what to do
To mend your heart
Raise you from the dark
You deserve the light, it’s true.

Dreams dashed, hearts crashed
Everything falls apart
But even dreams can be mended
Even a broken heart

I have to believe

With duct tape and spit
With shear will and grit
With force if I must
And a thousand years of dust and rust

I’ll get your gears grinding…

Take my hand
I have a plan
Let’s run away together
Escape this life
Leave beyond strife
The circus sounds much better

I’ll be a knife thrower
You could tame the kitties.
😉


Twitter Poetry – The Archive Vol 1

Claude Bouchard, via @ceebee308 on Twitter told me today to lose the question mark after “Twitter poet” in my bio.  I’ve been fighting it, being labeled as a poet.  I am a serious writer, damnit!  And poetry is so…  Serious.  Yes, poetry is serious.  So I’ll aim to take it that way.  Well, most of the time.  😉  The question mark lives no longer — thank you, again, Claude Bouchard.  🙂

Please enjoy some examples of my Twitter poetry. 140 chars or less.

Jan 13/14
Winter’s cold.
Streets are slick.
Walks from the bus stop – tricky.
Loaded down with beer,
Looking forward to home.
And, perhaps, a Twinkie.

Jan 13/14
Twinkies are good,
But pizza is best.
The cheaper the better,
I say.
Cheep smokes are good.
Cheap beer is better.
Cheap men the best,
I say.

Jan 14/14
There is a guy I feel for,
And want to feel up, forgive me.
He’s spectacular, believe me!
His assets make me dreamy.
My dreams leave me..

Jan 15/14
Oh, words so fail me!
Loving you with my support.
Wish it was enough.

Oh, my love fails me!
Never giving you enough.
Why can’t I be more?

Jan 15/14
Know I have your back.
Even when you don’t have mine.
Hashtag Still Love You

Jan 18/14
When will I be enough?
Isn’t it enough that I try?
Is this my cue, is it yours,
That we should say goodbye?

Jan 18/14
I give my all,
When Love I’ve found,
To lift high and regale!
But when love falls low,
And is often lost.
I’m left with empty sails.

Jan 18/14
I’ll drink my lot
And think of naught,
Find comfort in comfortabilities.
Play Midnight Club,
Aye, there’s the rub!
Delight in nonsenisbilities.

Jan 18/14
Victoria Flair,
Writer of so much drivel,
Invites you to read.

VictoriaFlair.net

Jan 19/14
Nothing to offer you,
Not even my love.
Merely words to comfort,
That do no real good.
I want you, my friend
To find what you seek.
The Best.

Jan 19/14
You’re breaking a heart
That has no right to break.
You’re giving to me
What I have no right to take.
I’m sorry.

Jan 20/14
Few words were exchanged,
Yet enough to spark a flame,
“trespass sweetly urged!”
#Shakespeare #haiku

Jan 20/14
Notwithstanding doubt,
Desire will always win out.
Flames turn to a blaze.
#haiku

Jan 20/14
Heat engulfs, swallows,
Fills the aching emptiness.
Searing with relief.
#haiku

Jan 20/14
Conflagration reached!
Brilliant sparks shatter the night!
A roaring release!
#haiku

Jan 20/14
Flames recede in waves.
Quiet, blissful aftermath.
Coals still burning bright.

Until the next Good Night.

Wish I was the one,
Your all encompassing sun.
Revolve around me?

I’m done. Disconnect.
I can only give so much.
Can’t do this alone.

Loneliness, old friend,
Come to torment me again?
Fuck you, not this time!

Jan 22/14
Put your faith in me.
Please know I’ll never hurt you.
You are part of me.

#haiku

Jan 22/14
Fuck, I can’t help it!
Can’t erase you from my mind.
I saw that picture…

And damn.

If I must be at the
Vanguard
at the Vanguard I
Shall be.
If arrows should pierce anyone
I would that it were me.

Jan 23/14
Your arrows cannot
stop me.
Not even stall my step!
I will always keep on
fighting.
Dare me.
I won’t be kept.

Jan 23/14
Cute boy, it won’t be.
You’re a thousand miles away!
Fantasy – can’t be.

Jan 23/14
Too much fantasy,
Too much dreaming, isn’t good.
Always a let-down.

Jan 23/14
When dreams meet real life,
Magic can explode, take flight!
Till then, only dreams.

And dreams are lonely.

Jan 23/14
My heart is not mine.
It belongs to another.
Though I deny it…

Jan 23/14
I deny my heart,
For he is not mine to love.
Only to care for..

Long for..

Jan 23/14
It seems hardly fair,
That I lay my heart so bare,
Only on Twitter…

Thru #haiku

Jan 24/14
Snot pours from my nose,
Eyes cloud with a salty fog.
Need to be in bed.

#sick #haiku

Jan 24/14
Gusts rattle windows,
Trees flais and twist, try to flee.
Loose shingles flying.

I hate windy days.

#haiku

Jan 26/14
Bad night, can’t take it.
My emotionas are too raw.
I’m feeling confused.

#haiku

Jan 26/14
Bad night, can’t fake it.
Wondering what I am to you.
Friend, ally, or more?

#haiku

Jan 26/14
Bad night, can’t make it.
Can’t take not knowing – Why me?
Please, what do you want?

A cold walk, in snow.
A pain that would alter worlds.
These are my stories.

Don’t trust my “=P” and “lol,”
Sometimes my emotes lie.
I may be lauthing to you, when
On my side of the screen,
I just want to cry.

Fuck!
Can I just tell you that I love you,
And be done with it already?
I know it won’t mean much,
Except to me…

He gives me the love you won’t.
I can give him the love he wants.
It’s not a perfect world.

What have I gotten myself into?
What have I become?
I can’t, I won’t
Be a woman I despise-
How did I let myself get here?

How?

I want to sleep
To be unconscious
To forget about you,
Not dream about you.
What are the chances?

I hate that I love you.

Ling and leaves on the floor

That meets up to
The best.

Too many thoughts in my head
at once.
Each clamoring to be heard,
set free.
It’s painful to keep track.
Seriously, it hurts

My life, at times
Feels overwhelming.
Though to others it would
Seem simple.
Guess it’s all about
Perspective.

Jan 30/14
When I want to say
“I love you,”
And it’s implicit that I not
Where does that leave me?

Babe, tell me
What am I supposed to do?

Jan 30/14
And, fuck.
I’ve forgotten what I was saying
And to whom.
Guess that’s my signal
To say G’night.

Though I might Tweet from bed.

Jan 30/14
To write through the night
Or catch up in the morning
Always a dilemma
‘Round midnight.
I’m sleepy.

Car doors slam
Voices raise
An alarm is sounding.
Or is that my head
pounding?
Damn you 4:30 AM.
This girl needs sleep.

You are my moon-
Inconstant

Always a present force.

Sometimes my emotes lie.
I may be laughing to you, when,
On my side of the screen,
I just want to cry.

@divorcequeen
I’m in a fine mood
Troubles
Passion’s brood

Laughing
When others
Think
I should be
Crying

Not a poem, but I liked it:

We sit across from each other
Letters dancind in our eyes
Oblivious to the miles between us
Two screens
Two Dreams
One reality

For our hearts were like
Rocks and shells on the beach.

A trust that allowed her to
Fall knowing with certainty
He would catch her
