New ages

Like Humpty Dumpty
I tumbled
Fumbled
Finally fell

All the kings
Horses
And all of his men
Tried to piece me
Back together again

So the doc
Sewed me back
Together
With candy cane
Stitches
And the best wishes

And now
Here I am
I’m born Again
Like a renaissance
Woman

Curves
And curiosity
And love
In all the right places

Blinking

Sitting here
Amidst chaos
Paperwork

Meetings
Frantic greetings
One on ones

Emails
Roadmaps

Tapped out
Wrapped in issues

But for a moment
I close these
Tired eyes

Just to see
Your cheeky smile
Warm gaze

Locked with mine
And briefly
Everything’s just fine

Just keep singing 

Leave a comment

Gentle notes
Breathe in
Then out

Where an exhausted
Mind
Would otherwise
Scream obscenities
Cried with ugly snot
Covered blotches

Splotches
Of ragged truths
Too brutal
To hold close
Any longer

Instead these
Softly lyrical soothes
Sayers

Slayers
Of words that otherwise
Would rip
Through silence

Trip across
This turgid tongue
Come undone
By fairytales
And faintly laced
Lies

Hogtied
By those vaguely
Quant
Ties that bind

Love languages
And poetry
That winds along
Every faint line
I drew in the sand

And I softly
Sing along
To the ballad
Ignoring these
Bitter voices
Inside my head

Lies

1 Comment

Here inside
This aching head
Misfiring synopsis
Wires crossed
Constant dread

The earth
spins on its axis
And me on mine

Dizzying speeds
And crossing lines

He calls me a liar
And maybe
He’s right

Because I don’t
Know what
You are

If I’m being true
I’m not certain
Anymore

Where even
I went
In all this
Chaos

I see glimpses
Of me
In his eyes
Or our laughter

I wish I couldn’t
See me
At all in you

Or in terrors
At darkest
Points of night
Reflect in tears
That drip

Flip to today
Where I play
Ever growing roles
Taking tolls

Until the only lie
Left to say
Is that I’m ok

A mama’s grace

When she was
Lying there
In that bed

Part girl
Part machine
Blood and fluid
Dripping
Into her

Nothing I could do
But watch

Hold the palest
Hand I’d ever
Held

So instead we laughed
At the soup
And the doc
Who looked like
A backstreet boy

And every now
And again
I’d turn around
To wipe away
The tears
And snot

Before I turned back
To smile
At the girl
Who stole my breath

And now that her cyborg
Days are gone
We still laugh at soup
And she still steals
My breath

And every moment
I remember
Just how close
I came
To losing my grip
On those pale
Fingers

And I raise my
Wet face
To whatever
Gods that’ll listen
With thanks

Motherhood

Leave a comment

I came with no degrees
Or doctorates
Diplomas
Previous experience

Not even particularly
Good
Educated guesses

Did a lot
What not to do’s

Did none of the
Crying it outs

Took less than a fraction
Of advice
Of well meaning
Masses

Oh but the love
From their eyes
That match mine

Makes me hope
Perhaps
I’ve mastered
A thing or two

Love the most

Where your soul
Ends
And mine
Begins

Bright lights
Blended lines
Blinds our eyes

And magic
Sparkles
Crackles around
Our toes

Where we step
Disoriented
Not sure
The direction
We came from

Or where we’re
Headed
lighthearted

From touching
The stardust
Before it exploded

And soaked
Into our mingled souls
Where we embrace

Such beauty
Traced
The colours
Raced through
Our celestial veins

Before separating
Us back
Into our bones

Hand in hand
Leaving us here
Not quite sure
Of where we were
