week 676 [from week 2] I swallow my heart like a goldfish

leave a comment »

I swallow my heart like a goldfish and
hope it remembers how to swim back to
its old spot in my chest what did I do
to end up holding disappointment’s hand
again I say it doesn’t matter it
really does though I close my eyes but my
mind pops open and as hard as I try
I can’t collide with sleep so we just sit
my dreams and I on the edge of the bed
and wait it out like drunkards or cowboys
or someone with plans until light destroys
our refuge and day drags us out instead
of hope grant me a lifetime warranty
so I can schedule my recovery

my heart fell
off my sleeve

off my sleeve

week 403 ~ family grows in the heart it expands

family grows in the heart it expands
adding those who stake a claim on our love
never stagnant sometimes out of our hands
family grows in the heart it expands
big enough to hold everyone who stands
at the door by choice or luck a sense of
family grows in the heart it expands
adding those who stake a claim on our love

I open my heart
though it feels empty
tear reason apart
I open my heart
press hope press restart
as life preempts me
I open my heart
though it feels empty

week 319 ~ why does the roof fly off the world

with 2 comments

me.319why does the roof fly off the world
from time to time leaving me bare
I reach out in the darkness where
will I find sustenance words hurled
in frustration fall broken curled
up in a ball at my feet they’ll
evaporate by morning sail
away even from memory
as my heart’s song no longer free
lies tattered trying to inhale

week 206 ~ which box marked fragile holds your heart

with 8 comments

which box marked fragile holds your heart
he asks I don’t know what to say
I wrap my past pack it away
there isn’t any easy part
and though it’s time for change to start
each object holds a memory
together they have defined me
now some will stay and some will go
but I am who they made me so
my heart’s in every box you see

thanks to Sam373 for the inspiration

heart full of wonder
which way lies dreaming
clouds pull me under
heart full of wonder
what time will thunder
send the rains teeming
heart full of wonder
which way lies dreaming
