After Hours

The shadows play tricks,
All moon sprayed chameleons
And desperate darks,

They set things on fire
And sing songs in unison,

Love dies in seconds.

Breathing Shadows

Posted in Poetry with tags , , , , , , , , , on July 2, 2008 by dc

A prisoner off this landscape,
I am tied to myself,
Haunted by everyday dramas,
Lying silent in the country.

The dark sky coughs light,
The rain pummel rhythms
And the night’s storm flashes
Seem electric by design.

I feel lost
And I spell out my reasons
With the speed of my pulse.

Lunar bells ring out
Distant incantations
As I start to breathe shadows
And reach out for your voice.

I toast life
In all its gleeful ignorance,
I weep fevers like summer hot oils
And send tears to the earth
To touch your sweet distance.

I dream you can hear me,
The storm is your message.
