Of Styx, and Stones



Of Styx, and Stones

It stings
When you tear away from me
Rips my flesh apart
To the bone
And I weather
Erode away
It crumbles,
My heart of stone
I wait for you
But as always
You have nothing at all to say
And I’m buried alive
But that’s okay
You don’t love me, anyway

Fire pours out
From my finger tips
Ablaze, insane, my eyes
In vain
Streaming infernos
Circle within
Zephyrs of all you said
Acid rain
I look to you
But as always
You have nothing at all to say
And I’m burning out
But that’s okay
You don’t love me, anyway

I twist the knife
Carve out my veins
And the bed is
Washed red, anew
I seek answers, hidden, buried
Blurred from my view
In sinew
I glance at you
But as always
You have nothing at all to say
And I’m bleeding out
But that’s okay
You don’t love me, anyway

I inhale another lungful of
Fresh water, rushing, choking in
This is the cost of love, I’ll pay
For loving you more
Than Hell loves sin
I call to you,
But as always
You have nothing at all to say
And I’m drowning now
But that’s okay
You don’t love me, anyway

I’m dying now
But that’s okay
You never loved me

Day 24 of NaPoWriMo! The poem today employs a line from one of my older poems. Went off a bit longish, lol.

See y’all tomorrow!

I never had an ‘innocence’
The clarity that childhood lends
Was always marred by lines of hate
Branded delinquent, reprobate
To wake up and to know for sure
It wouldn’t be a day to endure
To go happy to bed and sleep
Certain that no hatred would seep
Screaming, bellowing through the walls
Those are the nights that I recall
More clearly than the quiet ones
Are those where I’d stay up and learn

Those, where I lay in the dark
Embedded, engraved in my heart
Venom, repulsion, recoiling
Learning to stay quiet when roiling
Learning to keep my mouth shut
Learning quickly to grow up

Small wonder then, that I grew
Older than anyone I knew
My dolls never held fantasies
Of princes, eternal love, daisies
They were and are but ridicule
Not meant for homes where pure spite rules
My perception of love is awry
There is no room for simpers, sighs
All I look for is loyalty
Understanding is all I seek
And while I have found it, replete
I am for now, not incomplete
I cannot find it in me to mend
Not mourn the loss of innocence

Bimble Bumble Bum Bum


Bimble Bumble Bum Bum

A camel with a purple hump
Came over to show me his rump
He aah-ed and he ooh-ed
It hurt when he pooed
It seems that his bum had gone numb

I said, “Well what can I do?
Your bum’s in the dumps, ’tis true
Never have I seen
A camel so green
Or as purpley humped, as you!”

The camel, he huffed and he signed
Said, “Oh Doctor, never mind
I thought you’d prescribe
For me to imbibe
A bug or a drug or some kind”

I poked at his hump and I thought
He shouldn’t be left so distraught
I gave him some pills
To give his bum chills
And then numb or bummed he was not!

Yay! :P

Day 22!! Today’s prompt was to write a poem for children, in the style of Edward Lear. And how can I be nonsensical without green camels with purple humps?

Blue Silk


Blue Silk

Draped in blue silk
She stood
Awaiting perfection
The lines of her, taut
And withdrawn
As if yearning for

And marbled hands and
Azure veins
Mapped her frozen, placid
Simultaneously shy
And wild
But bereft of inhibition

Carved from chips of ice
As if, her eyes
In simplicity, out dazzled
The riots of color abound
They all debated
The truth of her beauty
But she knew the truth
Of all the lies

The smiling woman
So proud and vain
Was still a broken child

First day of the last one third! Day 21 of NaPoWriMo!! Inspiration for today’s poem came from two very strong women I know, and am blessed to know.

Much love!

Your kooky

The Melody


The Melody

Tinkling, merry laughter falls
On my ears like wondrous rain
Bubbling like the freshest brook
A chorus of mingled giggles
Trickling through reaches of green grass
Frothing over sharp edged rocks
Swirling eddies round my feet as
I paddle just off the dock

The breeze whistles, nudges, tickles
Teasing reeds, pushes weeds around
And they join me, tripping, falling
Sprawling on the dewy wet ground
Stretching cat like, tapping my feet
With ripples in harmony
All around, the fiddle pipes on
In the sunlit melody

And today, I have it all,
In the dampness of the shade
They all play, they play for me
As if for me this world’s made
And they smile, I smile with them
With ripples in harmony
In the laughter, I hear you too
You complete my melody

Day 20 of NaPoWriMo!! Just ten more days to go! :D

The Accidental Muse


The Accidental Muse

How do you warp the sun’s rays
To form a nimbus
In broad daylight?
And stay, so completely unaware,
Of how you make everything
Come to life?

How do you gleam, crystalline,
Bring diamonds cascading down
Send bolts of lightning arcing
Through the ground
And stay
So completely unaware
Of the fact that it’s all
Because you are there?

Alter existences, define
The boundaries of the universe,
Parallel realities, realization
Epiphany after epiphany
In seamless continuation

How do you transcend
Mere mortal flesh
And blood
And bone
Not even see how you reconcile
To me
The known, and unknown
And drop by drop,
Irrigate my mind
With a barely stemmed flood
Of reason, madness
Sheer, pure joy

And yet so untarnished, you are
Still you show me wisdom
Older than the stars
You guile and bewitch
Beckon, and confuse

How do you do it,
My accidental muse?

Day 19 of NaPoWriMo!! :D

If You Had A Booger



*cough cough*

If You Had A Booger

If you had a booger,
I’d wipe it away
I’d laugh, admittedly,
And snort through the day,
Oink and twitch at you,
But I’d wipe it away

If you asked a girl out
And she said she’s bi
I would go hit on her
Just to catch her lie
(How dare she turn you down?
The bitch will die!)

If you’re in a foul mood,
I would get my clown on
Relate fake drunk stories
Pretend I’m a proton
If you sniped, if you griped,
Cheerily, I’d take it,
Even if it hurt me,
For you, love, I’d fake it.

If you killed somebody,
I’d bury the stiff
Give the cops fake witness
And bribe the bailiff
If they cottoned on, I’d
Still be taking your side
And obviously, make up
The perfect alibi

(You know I’m convincing
When I deign to try)

See, it’s all cause you’re you
And I’m me, which means
If we both were zombies
I’d give you my brains
If you went to AA
Even I’d abstain,
And if you puked on me,
I’d ignore the stains

Cause when it’ll all go bust
When the world’s ash and dust
Through love, sickness and lust,
We’ll still remain

© CM

Because we will.

We’ll be friends, through tsunamis and diets, and exams and career changes, through exes and ohhhhs, through every damnable thing the world will throw at us.

We’ll still talk the same, we’ll still be the same. We will change, change is unavoidable, but we’ll change in the same way. The days come and go good, bad, and horrid. But there’ll never be a time I won’t squish hug you. There’ll never be a time when I won’t love you. I’ll always be that one soft corner for you to turn to, even when your world is at its harshest. I’m tortured and slightly deranged and quirky and lovable helping of nuts, but you know that and love me anyway, and how I love thee.

Hashish, Hayley, Madsies, Salface, Atit, Frohan, Kenny mah boy, Dr. Bard… Thank you. For everything we’ve done and said and been, and for everything to come, too.

And you, especially you.

(Yes you, idiot)

You’re the miracle in me. <3

All my love,

Cookie <3
