Pained Expression

Startling
glaring
snow diamonds
glitter
under milky moon
air so cold
breath hangs
frozen
crystal for a moment
before fading away.
Standing
watching
shadows creep
wailing winds
skeletal branches reach skyward
mournful melody
wolf’s howl
eerie counterpoint.
Stepping
one foot
other to follow
stray path
forked roads
I go
looking
not for riches
not for love
nor desire
I look for self
one lost
unto childhood
pain
memories
addiction
on goes the wretched list.
I am not proud
part of me though they are.
Today I try to compose
fragmented soul
one whole
girl
woman
Queen
I will become
never again to kneel.

Revivification of Self

Waves pounding
blue hues thrown to air
sparkling diamonds
sun pouring through
as I dance withing crested waters.
Freedom.
Giving self permission to love.
Giving self permission to fail.
Giving self permission to grow.
Giving self love.
Watch from the sand
reveling in passion
rejuvenation of woman
expression through desire
through touch
fall down
my cold thigh
yours hot from the sun
watch goose bumps pop
as my flesh warms.
Content
laying
sun basking flesh
drowsy
smile adorns my face.
Learn to embrace the unpredictable.
Learn to embrace the world around.
Realized I can only be responsible
for me
my thoughts
my actions.
That it is impossible to know the mind of another.
Your fingers catch mine
drawn to lips
soft kiss
smile wreaths my face
jumping up
pulling you to your feet
dash into the waves.
We have the whole beach…..
to ourselves…..
wicked glee flares
as in we dive.
