Nina cried power

Power to the night the skin of my skin
Power to the waves that endlessly drown
Power to the feeling of freedom

Lovely is the sun when dawn breaks
Lovely are the thoughts of breathing
Lovely is the breaking of a soul

Keep on trying keep on crying
Keep on trying keep on crying
Least we crash least we fall

Remember the beautiful
Standing at deaths door
With a gun in her grip

Remember the grass after rain
The floor emitting pain
Not everyone loses
But it feels like heaven to win

1903

I felt myself tremble when my heart started to speak

And little by little I knew something had changed

In the summer of 1903 the bold looks and racy smiles

I knew my lover when all the planets aligned

Sweet Major and minor divine where kisses

Taste of decadent cherry wine

And while the seasons continually change

I find my lover still stayed the same

We come together like honeybees

Living branches and cedar trees

And when sacred night harvests our flame bright

We harbour words that send our hearts a flight

Evergreen gardens where our fountain of love flows

Like waterfalls and the endless mastery of brilliant rainbows

The things I thought I use to know fall and fail they all let me go

The signs and song and words of the wise sound so bitter they cut as deep as knives

That love is so unattended day to day

The growing bud must be mended

I find love so sincerely refined

And with this statement I’ve lost clarity of the mind

Moonstone

I feel like I’m holding on too tight
But every bone in my body
Is screaming at me push against the current
I’m fighting a war that doesn’t end
I’m crying human the unraveling begins
I’m crying human I’ll never understand such things

Helpless breaths push me forward
Tears of agony root themselves deeply
I crave the peace of the old raging in my soul
I crave the story I began at young
The wrath of time set hurdles before me
I’m screeching human seeking humanity

I crave healing I search for healing
I hold on to the plentiful ideals
Knowing I am not I have passed I have fallen
I grasp at the stolen moments of normalcy
The explosion worse than the collision
The hope defining the tragedy

Is the future a cloud away
And my present set in the soil
The past waves of treacherous seas
A new arena daily and agony greets me

I feel my grip loosen and breath return
I search for the shifting day promising dawn
Is this delusion or hope I press on
Is the given a guided territory
I rise with the sun and rest with the moon
I carry memories and dreams volatile
As sifted and shaken as the earth’s plates

Of the Universe

Intergalactic being
Who jumped into the Atlantic ring
Cover up the blooded stains
Celestial convergence born again
Of the seas when the waves break
Of the skies when clouds float away
Elixir of wonders I see you from the times
Wonder of wonders the meaning secular life
Sometimes as beautiful as the horizon
I want to be authentic, intentional
Free from the inscription of my memory
I want to cast the waves into the seas
Screaming and crying my song of sincerity
I love you so like the plants love the bees
I speak in harmony with you
I crawl out of my being I create I am free
I find myself moving in rhythmic ease with you
Canvas colliding with my shadow to create life
I treasure you like a piece of my own soul
You are the golden moon the brazen sun
Life I carry on living with breaths
No hollow no breaking but a birth divine
Born and unborn created yet existing

The wanting

All I really wanted was you

Your smile your skin on mine

Your frown your fingers so close to touch

I can feel you breathe and feel you bone for bone

Give me now before it’s too late

And our recording machine says our final goodbyes

All I really wanted was you

Tell me was it worth it

To wish and dream of you

While the world was watching us

Who was watching god

All I really wanted was you

When the records play too slow

And the starry night let’s you know

I’ve seen better days with my smiling

But cut the song and make a mess of me

Call love pain and I’ll be the mistress of misery

All I really wanted was you

Let me kiss you and crece your collar

Hold on to me lazily and I’ll sing about

My old life before you

And the memories I try to hide

All night all day I won’t let you slip away

You have a lot to say but you hate questions

And you love the sound of my mother laughter

All I really wanted was you

Tell me how due West always gets you silent

And my eastward sun lights up your smile

Carry on mariner before we run out of time

Because it can’t just be a dream by your side

-v.

Evergreen Eden

I’m a hundred years old when I breathe

I find comfort in the miniscule starlight calling me to rest

Evergreens, Oaks and Willows

I’m seven years old when I climb them all

A giant when I reach the top

Plane Jane and ordinary Jo

Tell me all the little things I need to know

Eden seemed like the perfect home

Cut down the trees and build a home

I’m seventeen and the world could never be louder

And the lonely screams silence

The ink on my skin

Is a mystery worth uncovering

Crash like the gypsies

Dance the endless rhythm of aging

Because I’m thirty and the world’s repeating

I’m just older to most with my flailing that use to

Mean jumping and my jumping that looks like

Flailing so the words are jumbled in a line of straight

The sheets are quiet

The sunsets are bleak

And we lay awake at night but don’t speak

I still find myself in your eyes

With every truth and the little lies

-v.

Lucia

I roam the streets with my bottle of giggles

Roses in the air of night

I’m desperately searching for love again

Seven years in counting

Artists bore me

And singers make me sad

I need something to believe in

The rain comes softly

And I let it water the garden of my crown

I kiss the moon good night hoping

There in the middle of it all

The sun won’t find out

The night is for the sacred and secret

When did the hollows swallow me alive

I’m spinning dreadfully in the universe

And my car is somewhere on Mars

I use to cry at the thought of dying

The most romantic parting of our time

In the morning I’ll wish for the sun or a saviour

In the evening another bottle of roses and giggles

I’m wishing for chaos theory to hold me

But here you are flying in like an archer

Destined to give me a fatal kiss

Thanking the fate of all the forces

That sent me tumbling through this city

-v.

Saint

I caught you writing in my journal

You told me it reminded you of home

Where everyone wrote letters

Instead of making calls

I remember you telling me that

They kept your drawings on the wall

The first time you camped with me

I saw Orion’s Belt and felt serenity

The poison ivy didn’t hurt as much

When you circled it with your touch

I love the finger paintings we made

In the garden where we laid

Dreaming of splashing in the watermarks

Of our words in the brilliant lights

In the unfiltered and uncovered darks

But fires burnt down our home

And house for house we had nowhere to go

The stars turned to shadows of what was

And the years nearly turned us to dust

We cry and we weep till we fall asleep

The man said we sow what we reap

Timing was right when we turned on the lights

And men made of man laid out his hand

So swift was the tide when the boat capsized

Crawling back from the shore

I felt my heart beat and rage for more

There you are my saint with the beauty of Venus

Holy beloved with eyes dancing in love

-v.

Ocean waves

Sometimes I feel big and brave
Like the ocean waves
Crashing and flowing
Then I feel as small as a grain of sand
I’m worried about sons and daughters
The ones who have laid the earth since birth
They call me back every chance they have
Like the lake falls into the waters
We are our father’s daughters
Like the sun brings us to our knees
We watch the sons listen to our pleas
Sharing looks into our kaleidoscope future
And the magnifying glass of the present
Never doubting the telescope image of the past
Palm trees that’ll never fade away
I asked innocently for you to stay
I look to the future now I ride the waves
-v.

Portrait

I saw you at the fish market
A real Mona Lisa
Are you the same after the divorce
I heard the scandals from night too
Will nature truly take it’s dated cause
You only swim upstream
Why do you look at the fish like that
Why do you look crossly at your plate
You don’t need to eat the whole of it
They say eat as much as you want to
And then the leftover is art
But with your ocean waves you try to hide your face not as tough as you paint yourself to be
You’re the walking portrait of what I thought
A marriage half-baked was suppose to see
