    I sit here in silence, it's never enough, I swallow the pieces whole.

    I came up with an idea once, felt like such a surprise, it fell through, though, when forced to face the facts.

    I am tired of trying, trying to find something to quell what will be and is, the inevitable collapse.

    And these people, they keep coming back

    These moments, as they pass, how they seem, in retrospect, as units of life lived.

    To live within a perpetually permanent past. A life defined by an accumulation of acts.

    I am tired of an aloneness I chose but, still, I cannot ignore this hunger for more.

    I am a speechless poet, a metal muse, an intense implosive fuse.

    Lost in the infinite, my anchored -self , completely and utterly confused.
    This is way more human. And I identify with it, as much as we are aware of stuff we are unsatisfied and restless in a way.

    We should random post in here more often. I had the last line of your other one pop into my head today when I was doing something.
    Freude, schöner Götterfunken Tochter aus Elysium, Wir betreten feuertrunken, Himmlische, dein Heiligtum! Deine Zauber binden wieder Was die Mode streng geteilt; Alle Menschen werden Brüder, Wo dein sanfter Flügel weilt.

    I like bed hair.
    They say that beauty lies
    in imperfections;
    The mascara in her eyes...
    The smudges on her lips...
    She was so rigid last night;
    now wildness exists.
    She wants to turn away..
    "You can't see me this way!"
    Never tell me, I won't love her
    in the morning.

    *for ragashree*
    (excuse lack of punctuation/sense )

    driftwood


    1.
    dark and celestial
    wild nomads
    star a broad way show
    milky migration
    rhythmic undulation
    in hypnotic suck and swell.

    wine-fragrant, the pregnant air
    thick, sultry as the soil's blood,
    diffuses ebbing shafts of light;
    a stallion, salt-maned, rough-shod
    foams blind
    upon the boiling shore.

    2.
    to night, drowned
    are the sweeter sounds-
    cadence of cicada,
    essence of Africa:
    a passive scream
    against the coral roar

    alone, beached and unbarbed
    crustacean
    on the sun-bleached sand
    a pearl stripped
    ocean discard

    overwhelmed,

    quicksand steals language
    with an alien tongue
    forked, like a sword.
    doubled, a single word
    negates its power.

    3.
    how earth and water will conspire
    against a daughter of the plains
    stirring deep
    unsettled waves,
    those memories best
    repressed in the untamed.

    like sea on granite rock,
    fear of confinement closes in.
    with frenzied rasp,
    undressed; without escape,
    hard-pressed; thus
    landscape will domesticate
    a lioness.

    Here, I will share some of my haikus:

    Utterly alone
    They're afraid of the silence
    Empty space to fill


    The paradox box
    Identical opposites
    Nothing is something


    Men are like answers
    Simple and informative
    Leave women asking


    The curse of caring
    Is both knowing and feeling
    The truth about life

    Ragashree? That sounds like a planet in Star Wars.

    Shoreline

    Each night I walk along the curving shore
    behind my house, hands eager to grasp
    at small, meandering crabs drawn like war
    to thoughts of easy food. They softly rasp
    the sand, antennae out, prepared to bore
    into small worms, who can't even gasp
    as death uncoils under their skins, surprised
    and then discarded: used, but not despised.

    Held from behind, their claws fail, though they try
    to attack, with quick serrated scythes dyed
    with blood from past meals. I know that hunger -

    I know the way my tongue mimics them, scarred
    by my need to gorge until filled with flesh.
    With shells like Gothic castles under stars
    fading by sunrise, they keep weapons meshed
    against skin, ready for siege. It is hard
    to understand their lives, each step a fresh
    start, hunting the gifts of translucent tides
    with goals they cannot know, though glad to ride.

    Nightly, crabs spread legs dried by winds that linger,
    and shudder free of evening's tired fingers.
    They plunge into their depth, freer than I am.

    How relentlessly high tide comes and goes!
    It brought you to me, and sucked at our toes.
    Tonight I see your ghostly reflection

    carried on the crests. Love is dissection,
    the slicing of the heart's inner chambers.
    When they dropped, it left you and I strangers.

    My sense is that the light of day is not
    for wasting. Even now this beach I cross
    peels into ebon rind and pulp, its rot
    marking the boundary of time, embossed
    by kelp tangles. I still dream, body hot
    with memories of the roving touch I lost.
    Your wings of rope and canvas steer you out,
    leaving me in fog, crusted with my doubts.

    Tonight, like every other night, is truce:
    the day's soft laurel wreath becomes a noose
    draped firm around my neck, its fibers twisting.
