Fuzzy

A fizzy feeling
Starts filling my form.
The fear is fleeting
Feeling fuzzy and warm.

I fled from a fixed and formal rapport.
Confining, defining.
I'm fettered no more.

More fuzzy.
More fizzy.
A future of fulfilment,
And I'm forlorn no more.

Black Heart

My black heart
When full of fear
Only ever leads to tears

My inability
My disability
Leaves a wasted well of love

Noble
Stranded
Not fully expanded
Alone in the safe zone
A redundant defence

My black heart
A world apart
Uncharted
A world away from you

♥

Fall

That gentle descent.
That familiar scent.
As your dressings descend,
In a chaotic dance.
Some floating.
Some shaking.
Some whipping,
And tripping,
And filling the air.

A carpet of auburn
Returns us to there.
A resting, arresting,
A calling of calm.
To gather, to tether.
We all hunker down.
A consolidation.
Vibration.
A lift and a fall.

You rocked my world. You
Blew me away. For all that
I forgive the bad.

The Fog

I feel it lifting. 
A gentle shift.
Exposing how far I have become adrift
From my core.

I'm sensing a fresh space.
To create again.
To reach.
To be.
To be me.
To love.
To love me.

And the warmth flushes through my torso,
And I let go.
I let it go.

Ahhhh...
I release all my past tense.
This shift is a gift.
It drifts, and I give thanks.
The fog lifts, and I let it.
This time.

When you fell off my
Pedestal, it was me who
Got away...now free

Like Rust

A connection
Void of trust,
Corrodes.
Like rust, it crumbles.
Every attempt to repair it
Just chips away some more.
'Til all that remains
Is dust.
'Til it gets swept away.
One day...

You took me to a
Dark place, and I deserve a
Lighter place. Still free.

Ahh.  The freedom of
Being with those who accept
You just as you are.

Odious Beast

It's not a pretty world
When your view is obstructed.
With harmful and hate-filled
Odious beasts.
Venomous cretins.
Avaricious, and callous 
And steely and cold.

The power they crave
Wrested in those they devour.
With fear feeding their engines.
Ingrained year on year.
Stripping away one more layer.
Another level of cheer.

And the beauty of the sky,
And of snowflakes, of tigers,
And of bees
Drifts further from view.
But thank god they're still there.

A catharsis.  Ink
Making shapes that cap-
ture heaven and hell.

25/01/2017

You.  You meant something 
To me.  Now just bittersweet 
memories, to keep.

Tit for Tat

I have no truck
With those who want to fuck
With my mind
And keep me reeling.

I'm taking respite.
From all of the spite.
The tit for tat.
You ain't all that.

Keep on wearing your crown
In the new town.
Coz I'm the queen now.
And I feel just fine.

The Shallow End

Maybe I could cultivate a way
So I would only play
In the shallow end.
Being open only to the softest ripples.

Guaranteed a smoother ride.
Part dead inside.
Numbness colliding, 
Alongside.

Less wild.
Mild and flat.
The middle ground. 

No. I've already subscribed
To the higher ground.
Survived a tidal wave.
Braving it out.
Alive.

Relaxing into 
My own space, by letting the
Calm flood my heart/mind.

Touch

You touched a part of me
I had not been to before
Unleashed a well
A messy hell
Intense and wired
Electricity fired.

Still burns.

Spinning a yarn, while
Sitting with my knitting. Yeah,
Keeps me warm inside.
