broke up with Eric after 1 year
said no one's ever lasted longer than 3. Ran through a graveyard naked
got wasted for her sweet 16
got D's and F's last semester, misses at least 2 days per week,
wants some skinny jeans.
What about khaki and Bugs Bunny shoes? How long ago was that?
At least she wants a picture of Piglet too.
I haven't talked to yet.
Daddy said the same things:
"Never get old"
and wants me to mail another copy
of the Josh Groban CD.
So Much Moreso many thoughts at once
so many words unsaid
so much of you untouched
still vivid in my head
but now I know that love
unbridled isnt love
'cause less is so much more when you
are what I get less of
After a ShowerIn the backness doubled over strewn atop or in a ball
I found a thin-as-sheets sports bra
orange and green sun pajama pants
my white first wifebeater
and the big-black determination clip
cleared hair and cloth away for a casual clean.
Ode to CancerYou take me out of school and streets
work and play and being
ahead of the game.
I learn lessons in health and beauty
like tears in public
and laughter in the waiting room.
You strip away my shelter strand by strand.
Leave me naked, shining like a child.
My solar smile
no one will forget.
You burn my blood and try to crush
the bones of newborn love
but tenderness proves strong as steel
and as you try in desperation to destroy
two souls are forged by trial into one.
For everything you gave me
when you tried to take my life, I thank you
but most of all I thank you for thankfulness.
Discovery of SmallI was losing weight
It was great
until I started starving
greens and olive oil tasted good
my pulse lowered to 70 and I walked to the library
every day without getting out of breath.
Then one day I shouldnt walk at all.
I mustnt do anything but lay and eat, take it easy,
but whenever you feel queasy
you want to walk crisply, and breathe
the crispy morning air
that cuts the heat of nausea
better than the best peppermint
or freshest ginger tea.
So now, anything goes and I
must stop reading food
and start to taste again.
I cant taste it anymore.
Inner CourtNot too many years ago
conviction grew from the inside out.
There were roots and thick chewy shoots,
bright and fragrant blooms surrounded
nothing hushed or indignant.
I came following you
into the pungent embrace of a black lace mantilla.
Every question, each objection clipped away too hastily
now drags behind me.
I lay here blank and silent
tending broken branches lovingly,
breathing deep the banished baby sister
of ripened incense.
Truth BecomingNo one tells the truth
but those who become it
and they are not many.
They are not many who are brave
They are not many who are innocent
They are not many who are lowly
They are not many who become truth.
Creator and NarratorCall me the narrator, that is all.
Not smart for knowing what Ive been taught
holy for wanting to save my soul
or humble for having been humiliated.
Dont commend me for all I know
when its all I ever knew.
Dont congratulate my learning spirit.
Teach me how and why, show me Who.
Keep in Touch!
^Nyx-Valentine arrived in our community and started whipping everyone into a frenzy with her relentless desire to bring the Artistic Nude and Fetish galleries to the fore. 9 years later, and it's safe to say that Nyx is not only a leader as a photographer in these galleries, but she has also established herself as a much saught after model. ^...
