i’m Circe again:

singing stinging this man’s soul

into it’s true shape.

Advertisements

the bridges you burnt

the lessons not learnt

the ill will you earned

your lonely returned

unkindness you raised

all caught in a haze

your face starts to fade

you forgot-

the demons

always

need to be

repaid

kick you to the kerb.

kick you again until you

bleed for both of us.

all the worst things are

right there inside you, you are

made of water and oil

the tide

that drags

me

down,

you spit me

out upside

round,

you haul

and pull

and push

me in,

and then

you let me

spin

lightning on this edge

of sky this is you and me

our long kiss goodbye

the moon swallowed by

the dragon maw of cloud you

closed your eyes and sank

no stars only the

bright moon through fast flying rags

of cloud and dark sky

our boundaries are

north and south and east and west,

that’s all we can see

i am

walking

somewhere

on

the verge

of

waking.

i dream.

i grasp

your hair

your throat your

wrists your hips.

you.

press my lips

tightly

to your

locked

heart and soul ,

find and hear

and match

the neatly

pulsed

rhythm

contained

only

within you.

and

then

awake

to

a new

and

sudden

dawn.
