ghosts in here.

Shaking beneath
this skin,
my thoughts echo

like footsteps in
empty hallways
and

unseemly shadows
lurking against
the walls.

I realize, then,
that sometimes,
(sometimes)

a ghost is
just a
ghost.

& no amount
of wanting
to be more;

searching for paths
& seeking a way home;

no amount of struggling
to fight dark &
find self

will change the nature
[of a ghost].

Home [Is Where You Are]

I wrote this for my babies, quite a few years ago.

snow babies

[8.15.10]
 
You are my lights;
the stars & moon
that paint my skies.

The love that carries me
through dark moments –
when i’m lost, you find me.

The sounds of your laughter,
your words, your songs;
the way you both smile.

These are my reasons;
Your love lights my paths
& brings me home again.

10 Lines

“Write a 10 line poem”.

Write a 10 line poem, it says.
How dare it demand creativity
like it’s demanding oxygen?

You’re not the boss of me, prompt.
You don’t make up my life!
I write what I want, when I want!

Who are you to tell me
what I should write, and when?
You’re just a prompt, that’s all.

A 10 line poem, indeed.
