Leaning too far
this balcony
holds me by tip toes
I have long strewn
heels discarded
that pinched
the edges
another sip
from bottles straw
taking too long
to drink me drunk
below, around,
there is no grace
in the flailing limbs
which the music surrounds
and spurs on

~you never would dance~

moments like this
I know why
you spun me  
with words
and not movement
tamed my busy feet
sat me still
hushed muscles
even tonight
I hear whispers
through deafening
thud
of meaningless music
willing the theme
to change

~bring me your guitar~

in the quiet
play silent
mime me the memory
change this
am mockery of fun
melt their mass into one
remember how we sat
people watched
their nauseous stagger
amuses me still
we looked like them
but laughed anyway
claim me
occasional voices try
meeting them
with forced smile
that begs
to be left alone

~you wouldn't want to get to know me~

I need not
the lips of another
stranger
though they tell me
it helps
laughing at how
friends can get
you so wrong
their persistance
in finding me
someone to fill
the gap of tonight
knowing I'll turn
my face
smoking for end
holding back bruises
from show
their laid
back therapy
for grief
sickens stomach
so I

~promise myself not to come back next week.


Instant karma's gonna get you.

I must say that I enjoy your style.  

You captured me from the very first line and I was with you until the end.

Wow.... You write of the phase that I'm in now. I like going out with friends. But going alone leaves me more depressed than if I'd just stayed home. Thank you for this.
