the smell of ice
and vampire bites
thrill is in the air

fright night –
flashing sights ,
blurred lights &
candy so bright .

the scare of a clown
when no one's around ,
terror abounds
in cul-de-sacs of sound .

run run run
the shrieking rattle of death's bony fingers –
oh my God !
never mind , just a Grim Reaper .

& at 3 a.m. , when
the cycles begin again —
you know you've found
the thrill in the sound
"Happy Halloween!"

he presses my hips against the grimy sink ,
tiles racing in an old-school mosaic ,
in the mirror a girl with scruffy hair and
too-wide eyes glimpses the boy rubbing her shoulders .
her heart stops –

against her chest
ba-bum ba-bum ba-bum

she imagines it is a bird , not yet ready to fly away
but she knows caged hearts are cliché and nothing can stop
the boy trailing kisses down her neck .

i don't understand how his mouth
moves so naturally
when my tongue
can't even scream .

he pushes her , she imagines
she is in a meadow , ribbons trailing from her hands
making beautiful imprints against the indigo sky .

she doesn't understand how she got on the floor .

finally , her voice flees her heart , and races up a straight-edged spine .

a shrill cry pierces him , he shoves her away ,
protecting himself he
runs .

she sleeps in the police car , dull lights faintly sparkling
cerulean and maroon . he never comes back .
trigger: rape
i got away . i'm so sorry to those who couldn't .
patterns of music whispered

as she stepped

over valleys of unmade beings ,

souls curtseying and

clouds soaring joyfully .

mountains burst

into existence at the sound

of her name .

she had a smile

to rival the moon's ,

and loved all the creatures

made and unmade .

Death was her closet friend .

he courted her sweetly ,

teasing and playing like a young child

as he tickled her ears and

fancied her bare feet .

red curls surrounded her

head like a crimson halo ,

and when the sun rose they

slept in golden grass ,

lace draping every tree .

God saw this companionship and

was jealous .

he wanted the girl for himself ,

& spun an elaborate plan to capture her heart .

he held a feast for all the creatures , big and small ,

wild and tame , and

invited Death and the girl as special

guests to entertain all the animals .

when the day of the celebration arrived ,

Death and the girl walked together , hand-in-hand .

God noticed this and separated the two

immediately ,

but before he had them sit down ,

God gave the girl a beautiful silver necklace .

he told her it held stars in its depth ,

and not to open it until your happiest moment .

Death was slightly saddened that he did not get

a special gift , but he was happy for his

friend .

at the end of the feast , God announced a brilliant

idea : the girl and Death should sing and dance for

all the creatures .

naïve and pleasantly full from the delicious food ,

the girl and Death happily agreed .

Death danced and leaped and spun ,

and the girl with fiery hair sung

a delicate melody , her voice

rising high to the heavenly

night and coaxing itself around

each creature's heart .

at the peak of her song , she laughed and

opened the locket , and the smile was still on

her lips

when she fell

from grace with

a crumpled sigh . God feigned shock

and horror as Death leapt forward .

he instantly realized what God had done .

taking her body in his arms , he spat vile prophecies at

God and all the animals ,

cursing then for eternity .

to this day ,

Death has held Love in his arms ,

keeping her caged forever,  

and when it rains,

you know God still weeps for

the wickedness he had done to the world .
she walked to the beginning of time
etcetera , etcetera . 

( an older piece . )
two lovers , eclipsed in eternity

[ i don't want tomorrow to come ]

colloquial conversations ,

come perch in the rafters with me

and we'll spin gold out of straw

and write our own fairy tales .

[ i dressed myself in bleeding madras ]

crusaders love your tenacity , your absentminded
speech gives them ecstatic delight .

but i want you to come home .

capricious wind bites my feet ,
blankets crying as bare skin
smothers dry bone .

[ the halcyon days are long gone , luv . ]
he's an indian summer in the middle of winter

    people say there are other fish in the sea , but i say " screw you , he was my sea ."

:grump: i'm a black-and-white mess , i threw up in the shower , and this feature is on pause . my damn life is on pause . he held my heartbeat in his wrist and he'd rather cut it out than press it to his lips . i'm sorry , i will be back later . my mind needs a hiatus
