Impossible - open into dreams
I thought,
or at the very least
was the word that came to mind.
Your face too familiar-
your eyes, those eyes, their deep-impenetrable depths
their flashes of light
and all thoughts, dreams frozen in amber
held within an enchanted grove,
the inner recesses of my heart found there,
unchanged, everlasting.
So when I was all dizzy heartbeats and mismatching wishes,
your eyes came back to mind,
your image,
a shining beacon.
And within I saw
something else, a land beyond,
a lost land, place of dreams,
a sky somehow higher than others,
lifting my childish wishes up
and making all landlocked, grounded, very much grown-up ambitions
seem suddenly shortsighted.
I knew, then,
my Fate did not hesitate and
neither would I.
I closed my eyes-
turned my back on that future
upon whose door I had been so stubbornly pulling,
a door to a home that had never been mine.
I opened them-
opened into a brilliance like coming out of a dim place straight into afternoon

I lay down on the early snow.
The cold into my flesh slices,
The leaves, made beautiful in their death, hang heavy with the weight of snow.
I am naked.
I lay, the snow piling up
on flake.
At first
each flake is a separate sting
but soon the cold has spread throughout.
Each flake is a single feather
it lands softly
without temperature,
without sensation.
My flesh is pale.
The snow is whiter still.
Jealous of the snow's fairness
my cheeks redden.
My lips taste of water
and also of frozen skin, pink and cracked.
I think of the story of Snow White
of blood on snow-
how inspiring a contrast.
There is no blood
but inside I can feel it rushing
pounding so warm onto the cold walls,
my skin.
A hum, growing louder,
swells into clarity.
It is a voice that shivers into my ears,
foretelling everything.

The time bounded by day and day is a nobody's place. Up here on the third story I imagine the rain filling up the world, filling the space between the houses as if they have created a perfectly sealed in container, building up until the still water pauses just outside my window, a mirror disturbed only by the last raindrops, then laying flat and expansive, reflecting the sky. The rush of water is a great ocean forming. I can spill all the books from my bookcase and use it as a boat, paddle my way to your house through flooded streets.
The time bounded by day and day is the home where lost loves find shelter. Memories bubble up, boil over. Him, he, gentlemen, and those not so gentle. The unruly heart trembles with explanation. With feet that never brushed the ground I could not stand, could not even step forward. The greatest mystery- why, at ease in a contented present, must we hold close the unfavorable past?
Sleep visits for a time. She takes hold of me and enters. I close the world

Personal Quote: "Love is not thinking, but being"
♪♪ Something's coming but I can't see
Something's coming but I can't see
But I can't see

Drifting through sun-streaked days
And wispy nights
Of afterthoughts and fireflies
Careful now
There's no one around

Something's coming but I can't see
Something's coming but I can't see
But I can't see

Shifty-eyed and sifting through the rubble
Who would think a mind could be so muddled?
Terrified as terror does it finds me
It finds me

Desperately, spiraling...

Something's coming but I can't see
Something's coming but I can't see
But I can't see
