NaPoWriMo 2021 – Day 7

Gold Coins

Gold coins holding
The little things
Precious that I feel
In every song
I play in the rain
Getting quieter as
I float into sleep
Keeping gold coins
In my palms
For safety, to anchor
My dreams to my heart
Even after the world is gone
After I healed this pain
Digging me inside out
Into even more besides
Gold coins holding
The little things
Precious that I feel

NaPoWriMo 2021 – Day 6

Daze

My head in a daze
As I wake up into
A world I fail to notice
Even as it swirls in rage
Beyond this non-belief
Falling apart against
My legs trapped in a race
With myself and no one
While seconds tick down
And dance for attention
Obliterating thoughts to
Leave nothing more for
My head to ponder beyond
A fruitless daze

NaPoWriMo 2021 – Day 5

Bitter

Pass me the bitter
Better than waiting
For nothing special
Frozen throughout time
Could not compare
Hearts broken into pieces
Scattered across the universe
Feeling like a little girl
Not wanting to worry
My pretty little head
Yet I am wasting away
These seconds in holding
For more than they could
Give to me in night’s stain
Pass me the bitter
Better than waiting
For nothing after all

NaPoWriMo 2021 – Day 4

Waves Calling

Leaving what is left
To the waves calling
Me home as I roam
Into skies above
Where they bleed
Across waters where
I began and wept
For the patterns to stop
And start up once more
Even while I begged for
A change to appear
Fruitless and decayed
Leaving what is left
To the waves calling

NaPoWriMo 2021 – Day 3

Scattered Flowers

Gather scattered flowers
Across my nightmare-laden
Seas of slumber
Thunder like tides
Threatening me black and blue
Never the same song
And dance twice in memory
Draped across the moon full
Of it own disdained ego
Colors of silver and grey
Shone in my ropes
Of disastrous repose
Into scattered flowers
