Tend to Me?

>·<
I spent today
Pulling out all the weeds
And dead things from my garden
It looks terribly bare
I’ve left it untended for too long
>·<
I’m uncertain how to fill
These hungry spaces
Perhaps the tiny, struggling
Remains of previous endeavours
Will grow again
>·<
I haven’t the heart
For putting in the work, though…
New beauty please
Empty
But tidy?

The Choice

Posted in Poetry, Uncategorized with tags , , , , on July 6, 2016 by becciseaborne

heart

.
I’ve had a falling out with my heart
She brought me to a dangerous yet beautiful place
I came willingly, open-eyed
But now I need to return, I find she won’t allow it
.
We are stuck here
.
So my choice is to stay with her, and the pain
Or to leave without her
She is wayward and wild, my heart
Stubborn and cruel to me
.
Yet she is wise and true
.
I’ve always trusted her
Wherever she takes me
She’s taken me to joy, pain and grief
To beauty,darkness and love
.
Never to peace, though
.
She has never taken me to peace
Perhaps it is time for peace
Perhaps we should part ways now
My heart
.
And me

Bubble

Bring another bubble

They don’t last long

My thoughts are too sharp

To preserve iridescence

 

Bring another bubble

And reflect to me

That world of ours

You paint so well

 

Bring another bubble

Breathe deep

And exhale long

It’s all I need

 

 

Strange Skies

Stormy Skies by Marcus Sam

Things get lost
Picked up
Put down

Warm Streets
Cold homes
Strange skies

People get lost
Unseen
Yet changed

Warm Streets
Cold homes
Strange skies

Hearts get lost
Reckless
Broken

Warm skies
Cold streets
Strange homes
