Neverland

Neverland

Call me walled
in cast iron squalls
sailed by random memories
to shelter in the dark
mismatched pieces of
this broken heart
Betrayed, unswayed
the ghost inside my head
is bleeding red
on visions of a perfect world
I am just a Lost Girl
silenced by a feather
drifting onto the remains
of hollow wordplay

I’ll be Blank

Dove by TasheenaS
Dove by TasheenaS

I’ll be Blank

I suppose
as I grow old
my heart this knows
my brain won’t hold
on to everything
I’ve ever known
Some will go missing
as how I’d grown
when’s and where’s
will fade away
Not just yet
but in those days
I’ll be frank
and like the dove
I’ll be blank
of all but love

North, South, East, West

North-south-east-west
following my heart
is what I know best
Sometimes it doesn’t go
the way I think it will
Sometimes it does
or it just stands still
Sometimes it’s off
in outer space
Sometimes it doesn’t
quite know it’s place
but I hear my heart’s song
where it always belongs
forever a home
where it’s never alone
with family and friends
until the bitter end

I’ll Never Blank

.Fear of a blank planet. by Nonnetta
.Fear of a blank planet. by Nonnetta

I’ll Never Blank

I’ll never blank a star
from existence
away so far
I’ll never seize its light
from the darkest of nights
or steal a beam from the moon
I’ll never know the heat
a single star can beat
when it’s shooting through the sky
I’ll never touch a star
or wander far
from the illuminated path
I walk to live
I’ll never cross the stars
the lovers they are
smiling on the rest of us

Snow Blinded

Snow Blinded

Snow blind
in the rear view mirror
shards of a broken past
reversed in the glass
to look light and bright
from the outside
None of that fluffy white stuff here
I’m on the run from the spear
aimed at my heart
ripped apart
by the follow through
A new start
looming in the shadows
of what should have been
your long deserved happy ending
Our time together
but fairy tale dreams
Fates and destinies
are not what they seem
because any magic
including true love
always comes with a price
Double-blinded
and minded
by time…
