To Be Awake

FREE WRITING

I float on my back with my limbs stretched out wide 
The soft, sunset waters bidding me home 
Midnight whispers of dreams kiss my eyes 
As I gaze into paradise alone 
 
Alongside the bay where the stars façade their fall 
Limp figures seal their fate with crimp-curved ink 
Restlessly twitching and itching for a call 
Their colorful fibers turn monochrome with a wink 
 
Nevertheless,  
I bid the sorrowful sun adieu with a cheerful wave 
Twinklings of moonlight tickle my ears 
Breathing life into me until...

Her eyes like soft, chilly glass scan the brooding horizon 
Glancing at the looming, fathomless mass creeping up the shore 
Their disheveled, limp forms crawling, their phantom echoes calling 
But she cannot hear, no she will not hear 
 
Her dainty hands hide her porcelain figure in a rose-glass, bubblegum crevice 
effacing the ephemeral love whose blackened lungs could sing no more 
Rocking restlessly with the trembling melody plucking in her stomachs 
He would not hear, she will not hear 
 
Her teeth chattering at the thought of his swirling kaleidoscope...

To tell my truth

PROMPT: Why I Write

I write to tell my truth, 
the tiny voice whose inconquerable murmur 
swirls within the ice-cold waves of my brain
and the firey abysses of my heart.

I write to scream in pain, 
With my one assurance, my one plea, my one word
the last leaf that falls each autumn
and the first rose of spring's cherry blossoms

I write to laugh and leap and sing and dance, 
to let the golden sunbeams of the glittering sunset sprinkle me with ...

perceiving the world through a rainbow-tinted g l a s s
with his pink skirt and technicolor eyes
unhearing the e u p h o r i c ephemera of yesterday's sorrow
multicolored bandaids decorating his unscarred canvas
he skates figure-eights in patrol of the c l o u d e d heavens
and he falls.
