Reaching out beyond the dream of what you thought was real, spinning on this ball of life, head now under heel. Ready to die, to live this life so raw, alive on ledge- dancing, hurling, freeing your soul to finally stretch the edge.

hold my heart tonight

keep it safe from all the sounds
of loneliness and fear
and of things I cannot dream
hold me close tonight

be the soothing balm that
heals me be the easy slip that
frees me from me                                       
hold my heart tonight

reach your strong hand toward mine
sit beside me in the dimming light
be my brightness, be my guide
please, hold me through the endless night

and closer through the thickening dark
while I cherish the light and kindness
beating through your soul, as mine
hold my heart

it's so cold out here, tonight

If we seek anything other than truth
what are we seeking?

What are we defending in
the absence of actuality?

What do you believe in?

The corner of Hell & Main

My life, my love
the pits and the flowers
rainbows and showers
Will dawn break open the darkest night?

Can you come over, love
from that place in your dream
where you are neither there nor here, but
asleep in daylight and slumber?

Drownin in U

Set me free!
Can you really be with me?
Pour your soul 
into my hands?
Your heart
into my river?

Waters' colors

along the black and jagged edges of my past
seen through the ecstasy of your pain
your beautiful eyes graze toward
each shiny little patch in the middle,
like the glisten in a drop of rain or
the thinnest little seed of light,
the very first glimpse that awakens the dawn---
always falling from your eyes, yet again
to dilute these lines, stretching
colors all across my forms

what do you see in me?

Cunning linguist

Thank you for seeing me,
thank you for being me,
We are life's divinity
when you dissolve into me,

blow me away, again

Love from a friend:Thank you for seeing me, being me.

She whispered into my ear
as she held me so closely,
"Your love is beyond compare."
"Thank you," I said,
"for knowing this heart
so freely."

Even in a darkened dawn, your light shines so brightly.
