In Attempt To Steal The Garnet Skins of Dream

Papered dry and garnet teased
in spaces bleached for your approval,
an erasure of the unhealthy taking.
There were too many secrets etched
to wait another day.
I could have washed my hair again
or just sprayed the scent of yesterday
across the frame to you, a sip between
the one too manys, a swing of sight
into your world. I was papered dry,
I was germ free, and teased with garnet halves.
And it feels as if stones are weighing down
my eyelids, for I've lost my way again
and wandered too far from the safety of you
and the distance of truths swallowed in shame.
I forgot the time and wasted the hours
inside myself, in circles falling.
I never meant to come across so sure.  
I wasn't sure about anything.
I have a hard time believing in
the trip tales outside of coffee shops
all spilling and burning your mind.  
What a waste to think it mattered,
to have had that chance to play in the rain,
to forget the hour inside yourself.
I put me on a shelf for years,
aside from learning to feed and house and love.
I swirl for then and fight to keep my eyes alive,
reject the weighted sin, the heavy pains
accustom to the reality around here.
I figure I'd either walk from you or
turn around and run, but where's the fun
and wasn't that why this all began?
I fell here, parrallel to your episodes,
swimming in the middle of steel frames,
stamped with prints of lips in line,
in attempt to steal the
garnet skins of
dream.

Reading your words here it feels like a great weight falling across my shoulders. But then I could be picking up the wwrong vibes, again!   Take care my friend, and peace to you!

Spitfire,
    What beautiful imagery. I feel like I am there, and at one time I was.  Your incredible words bring this sad epic to life.

Your metaphor is astounding.  I'm so glad I read this one!

SpitFire~
You write melancholy like no one else -

'I could have washed my hair again
or just sprayed the scent of yesterday
across the frame to you'


Quite the read you've given us.
Well done.

Spitfire, sometimes we want others to see into our words, sometimes we do not...I closed my eyes and repeated certain lines, and perhaps I saw the Garnet of the poem...

well done...

very well done....

I think this would have to be one of favourites from your pen. You have out done yourself here, excellent piece. I can feel the sadness heavy in the words, hope everything is ok. Peace, take care my porch friend.

"I put me on a shelf for years,"

Indeed--where are you lady?

(for that matter, where am I?)
