Delirious

Poetry, portfolio

the apple of your eye
tastes sweetest in the dark
slipping between fingers
lingering lonely on your lips
a bitterness you crave
to turn windmills and grapevines
to look longingly through windows
when the rain is falling down
and run through hallways
as you spin, spin around

the apple of your eye
like an origami cat
is crisp and clean and ready to
pounce, to curl in your lap
with soft paws and soft breathing
a soft face with evil secrets
don’t fool yourself, i guess
you could try to put up a fight
but now it’s time you find the mind
is a bullet you cannot bite

☾ ☾ ☾ ☾ ☾

Darkling, dreamer,
Stars simmer at the brim tonight.

Bluebells reach, high from your palms;
Sweet teacups collecting cool rain.
Fairies flit and flicker witches’ psalms,
Purple hues haze in novocaine.

Swim the black sea with me,
Swing through planets, galaxies,
Feel the darkness, in all its glory –
Silken, salacious, upholstery,
Bite
Into dark delectability…

Feel it seep in
To every crease of your mind.

Darkling, dreamer,
Lick the salt from my neck.
Let your tongue swell, three times,
Until your mouth hangs open…

And you cannot breathe.

Fingertips find each other
Delicate, adjusting,
Hesitant first…
Flowers grow, in-between
Spaces growing smaller…
Alive in all senses
Singing operatic chords,
Gushing lightning and rivers.

You tease your fingers along mine
Lips linger in my palm.
Cool, sweet saliva
Drives my hands to your waist.

You run yours through my hair,
Blonde velvet swaying for you.
I arch like the opening
To a stately home…
Where roses are blue
In a sea of green…
Where still I would find
My way back to you…

I fall forward, to you, lean in your arms,
Slow breath warm, familiar, of you…

The universe awakens,
In the darkest corners
Of your eyes.
