Change rides the wind

Future rides on the night wind
ruffles curtains, caresses skin
whispers promises at the edge of dream
leaving traces of something almost seen

More Than I knew

and I flew apart
blew my top and things
toppled out
many more than
I knew I was

rain drenched sopping ground
long sated - swiftly runs your

Self Portrait

I find it difficult to

look at me,

and see anything other than

what I want to see.

This is me as I

see me, or

if you will

as I want to be.

Night Write Against the Dawn

She cannot live her day out loud
and nightly trods her dark and hollow tomb
holding silent vigil
for a swiftly dying soul
and pen in hand
in desperate measure
she writes for her life
if not sanity at least respite
as each scene that never was is a moment
true upon the page as the words flow
soldiers marching cadence
across each pale blue line
in desperate foray an
assay against encroaching dawn.
