Give it Tough 2

Fuck It

work in progress

between the bars cover

chelsea hotel #2 cover

from this far



an old séance

to whisper your name

this worn green chest

remembers everything.

dusty musky dusk

another day turned in

come alive again 


faded ink

like memories haze

loose blood and sleep

dreaming those last days.

the wind screams out your name

one they could never forget.

close, so close

almost in my mouth

i can feel you breathing

just beyond my reach.

your sulfur blood rebirth

spills stains like clouds

i could almost hear you

if the living weren’t so loud.

go in peace

but never never leave my side

 a soulstar shining

high up in the night.

purple hour turned pink again

shone love down on me

and i knew right there and then

how to hold you from this far.

everybody has their “thing”, and most things are not for everyone.  

heartache is a poison.  with just one antidote.  which is to feel it.  all the way through.  to the end.  and i always forget that.  until i remember.

for sarah:

i write her haikus

when i’m missing her sorely

because she liked them.
