NaPoWriMo 2021 – Day 12

Shadows

Grab a phantom
I do not know because
I know too damn well
That I will need safe passage
As I travel through shadows
Sharpening their teeth
Against my reality
Twisted up in
The ruins of my energy
Leaving me shredding apart
As I travel through shadows
Wanting me for their very own
Not ready to go home after all
Hope strung on delicate threads
I wove from my hair cascading
Like dew over the lands
While I seek a phantom
I do not know

NaPoWriMo 2021 – Day 11

Carve

Carve out a soul
Of your own despise
While the rain pours
Crimson and cold
Into snow it swirls
Aching with its lust
For another day
Everlasting on whiskey’s
Inhale to hide secrets
In the ruins of bones
Charred and broken
Waiting to carve more
Than a comatose memory
Of revisions incompletely
Carve out a soul
Of your own demise

NaPoWriMo 2021 – Day 10

Priceless

Drown in the black holes
Circling your priceless counsel
Lock down and lick poison
Friendlier than this passage
Where we hold hands to keep
Our heads above water
Water we cannot tread
Nor quench our growing thirst
As we silently give way to
Drown in black holes
Circling your priceless counsel

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
