by fire

will singe my soul

tis inevitable, unless

i let you go

higher plane (lyrics)

you break the calm silence

of dreams in the night so close

like whispers of love higher

just beyond reach

like the sacred fingertip

~

my heart beats true

to the thing

other than you

words cannot explain

a new love

on a higher plane

~

thunder crashing down

your swirling bed of lies

satin sheets blowing cold

with all your might

it’s a bolt of darkness

that you strike

wounding angels unaware in flight

~

my heart beats true

to the thing

other than you

words cannot explain

a new love

on a higher plane

~

torn hearts apart

crying – dying

the storm in your rage

i lie here in abeyance

why do i

obey your storm

~

my heart beats true

to the thing

other than you

words cannot explain

a new love

on a higher plane

a new love

on a higher plane


black birds

the black birds descend

upon me now,

a shroud of darkness

covering my body like a plague

devouring the remnants of life

before earth’s pleading season.

a hawk circles overhead,

and two robins

in the distance, sigh.


like a mood (lyrics)

i wear you like a mood,

you smile for me

when twinkling eyes grow dark.

you are my tear

fallen, burning,

stinging the earth

pure as baby’s truth.

you are gone now

and our stormy bed remains –

your hair upon my pillow

left mingling with mine,

braided by our love,

as it was –

when we lay as one

held by the truth in love,

naked and wet

on flowers of fire,

burning our innocence

into the flesh we wear.

i wear you

like a mood.
