forget me

you won't forget me
one day when a certain girl
who looks a certain way
saunters by and catches your eye
i hope you'll remember
there was a strange eyed girl
who loved you so
the one you cast away
who will never erase
your memory
You will hardly know who I am or what I mean, But I shall be good health to you nevertheless, And filter and fibre your blood.
Failing to fetch me at first keep encouraged, Missing me one place search another, I stop somewhere waiting for you.

"it was my duty to understand everybody, becoming delirious,
weak, unyielding, compromised, heroic, vile,
loving until i wept, and sometimes an ingrate,
a saviour entangled in his own chains,
all dressed in black, toasting to joy."
pablo neruda

violet

violet shadows
before the breaking of dawn
half dreamed sensations

yes

love with no control
hazy lines blurred between us
there is no escape

It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.

“In your light I learn how to love.In your beauty, how to make poems.You dance inside my chest,where no one sees you.”

marichiko

I waited all night. By midnight I was on fire. In the dawn, hoping To find a dream of you, I laid my weary head On my folded arms, But the songs of the waking Birds tormented me.
~marichiko

softly as the sun rises

i shine before you

my heart is a precarious bird


yes to everything


covet


my skin fresh with dreams


alone at the break of dawn


this longing for you

sonnet 17 - pablo neruda

I do not love you as if you were salt-rose, or topaz, or the arrow of carnations the fire shoots off. I love you as certain dark things are to be loved, in secret, between the shadow and the soul.
I love you as the plant that never blooms but carries in itself the light of hidden flowers; thanks to your love a certain solid fragrance, risen from the earth, lives darkly in my body.
I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride; so I love you because I know no other way
in which there is no I or you so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand so intimate that when you fall asleep it is my eyes that close
Pablo Neruda

waking dream


the last magnolia


robert browning

The moment eternal - just that and no more - When ecstasy's utmost we clutch at the core While cheeks burn, arms open, eyes shut, and lips meet! Robert Browning

i feel your sweet voice
seeing me and feeding me
faraway jeweled eyes

hummingbird flicker
exquisitely electric
craving your nectar

the precipice


dark birds

“Electric flesh-arrows... traversing the body. A rainbow of color strikes the eyelids. A foam of music falls over the ears. " ~anais nin
