Chapter 2 – A Week of Me

7 Sep

Sunday

It was dark

No one came out to play

Monday

It was snowing

At home we will stay

Tuesday

Lessons to learn

You are far away

Wednesday

Back to Rixuland

For fun and games

Thursday

Pizza at the asshole club

For my drinks, who will pay?

Friday

Prepare for tomorrow

Another weekend day

Saturday

No letters to send

None received

I love you, see you soon

Is what I used to say

Chapter 2 – I Used To

2 Sep

I used to verse

On ocean waves

That never burned

Or blew

Bitter mist into my face

Snow that rarely

Blanketed the earth

Or gave me

Flakes to taste

Voices speaking

Foreign  words

For me to decipher

Or laughter

In which I found pain

Crucifixes

Painted on crevices

Into skin

With pins

Blood – I used

To leave my

Sinister conclusions behind

Or far from me

In this light

I have seen the future

Witnessed past

Now to make

These perfect memories last

Chapter 2 – Me in Mud

2 Sep

Planting the seeds

Roosting for hours

January showers

Limited numbers

Sunburned curls

Locked away from dark man’s touch

Excited, entranced

By distant voices

Choices must be made

Tomorrow begins the day

Which ends my journey

To the Finn lands

From desert heat

And the burning hearts

Of the ones I love

Chapter 2 – To Ninni, My Big Sister

2 Sep

I will not verse on your beauty

For surely it has, and will inspire

Many a poet to match in metaphor

That which the artist’s eye does seek

I shall not write about your generosity

Though it has been plentiful

And gratefully received

You’ve given freely without reserve

While I am able

To give you only these

Simple words, spoken softly

Attempting to appease

The bestial sea

Between us

Perhaps one day

Salt water will carry you back to me
