The words I write
like stains on time
are from within
and spill with rhyme
but of my thoughts
the words are not
they are of a pain
beyond the heart
they come from SHE
and her bitter knife
SHE carves them deep
SHE gives them life
they are a burden
at times my noose
but I am helpless
what can I do
I have no choice
I can not fight
so for my muse
these words I write

WHY I WRITE
I was tagged by my dear wordsmith friend @stillwaterrunsdeep to answer #whyiwrite. This poem tells why.
I did not write much until SHE (my dark muse) strangled me with a death grip. SHE then ripped away at my soul until it splintered into small piles of torn and tattered words. I found a voice in those sorrowful piles of wounded words and I used it to speak. Loudly.
I now tag my lovelies @calliope._ @the_poetic_diva and @the_poetic_turtle to share why they write (tag three others to answer WHY I WRITE).

(WE GO CAREENING)
Sirens our future
Careening
Foot to the floor
Smashing Guardrails
Shattering complacency
Demolishing judgement
In the dark
Without control
Without exit
Disregarding limits
We impact
spiraling descent
Spinning
Careening
Kissing glass
Caressing chrome
Our existence
Crushing
Our worlds
Colliding
Ripping at the seam
Tearing at the core
Damaged us
Embracing inertia
Into the crash
We go
Careening
(KC)

They say I don't fit
My words arn't right
Too much like song
Too much I rhyme
These snobs of word
They pretend to know
As if they are Gods
But their egos show
They poison a truth
They are locked in time
With meaningless dribble
They tout as sublime
This is not of all
Only a few
But the sad part is
They've gotten To you
I hear your soul
It no longer sings
It's too busy scribbling
Dull pompous things
Go, be with them
These dinosaurs
Close a tiny world
Behind egomaniacal doors
Wear your beret
Smoke cigs to the stub
Choke out the world
With a poetic snub
See where it gets you
Yes, let's see how far
What good are the words
If they no longer scar
And it's so sad to see
This is how you now are
I read it in your words
This is how you now are
(KC)

Poem: A rather silly one. Because we all need that sometimes.

She was a loss
Right from the start
A penny soon dropped
love without heart
I would not listen
I stared at the sun
I ran with scissors
I wallowed in fun
like all cheap things
We were made to break
Our love soon spoiled
Like mold on a cake
But yes I would
I would do this again
What is a thrill
Without a shot of sin
And truth be told
When life wears thin
Sometimes the heart
Needs an easy win

(She Was Torn)
A letter of longing
A ring of gold
She was torn
Her heart of paper
Her love of silk
Her answer of sword
She lays torn
So easy she frays
Quietly she tears
Silently crumbles
But with grace
She'll fold
Beyond the tatters
Stitched with needles
Mended with thread
Carefully patched
She hangs
Once
She was torn

Image: Photo of me executing a performance art piece, 'Russian Roulette, American Style', at the La Mammele Gallery in San Francisco (many many years ago) Yes, I survived.
Poem: She of sadness was gone, but I still had my share of 'goodbyes', this from the She of Worry.

She said goodbye as if she were pulling a weed.
I had become nothing more than an intruder, a nuisance, an unwanted pest in a tiny plot of dirt she called her heart.

(The day the dying died)
Melancholy broke in the night.
With a kiss of light, fever withered.
No longer am I wrapped in a blanket of sadness.
This is not easy.
Profoundly unfamiliar.
Truly strange.
Words 'I am blessed' cross trembling lips.
A monumental event...
quietly downplayed.
No melopoeia.
No crescendo.
Yet my hand scribbles musical notes.
A gospel.

Goodbye
My halo,
muse of tears.
My worship,
she of sadness.
My detest,
She of pain.
my love,
this wound.
Yes, Goodbye,
she.
Forever more,
Goodbye.
--
Note:
I have no explanation.
I only know it is gone.
Spell, fever, possession, whatever you call it, is gone.
The SHE poems now come to an end.
I did not plan this, I actually thought the Muse of tears would continue kicking for a very long time, if not to death, but she surprised me. A year of suffering ended.
Just like that.
Liberation, freedom. Relief.
Miracle.
I can only be grateful.
Thankful.
Where from here? I don't know.
I really don't know.

When she looks in the mirror
she leaves life behind
she loses herself
as if she's enshrined
For hours she stares
it's like she can't see
her head does not move
not a single degree
Deep in the mirror
it reflects in her eyes
time doesn't exist
almost like she's died
Life can be be ugly
beauty often disguised
but here in the mirror
a second life lies
One day she will fall
into that silver glass
from one world to the next
she will quickly pass
Into the reflection
her soul will go
and this mortal world
will matter no more
If I bring her flowers
hold them for her to see
will she look back
or will I only see me
And if I keep staring
will I see her bliss
or will the reflection
only be of sadness
When she looks in the mirror
she leaves life behind
she loses herself
as if she has died
(KC)

I have a heart to the North
and one to the West
One heart beats crimson
the other bright red
I had a heart of white
down by the sea
But a deceptive black tide
took it from me
I once had a pink heart
It came from the East
In a game of charades
I proved too weak
Over a cyan ocean
Beats a heart of green
It has no lock
so it can never be
Down to the South
is a sad yellow heart
It wrapped me in tears
Before having to part
An orange heart arrived
On a tepid blue day
Orange hearts run wild
So they never stay
My own heart is purple
Once shot in a war
It takes many colors
To beat red once more

Hello followers
Some already know my 'she' poems from my main account -

@lowbrowser

Well, due to 'pointed feedback' I've decided to continue them here and leave the other account to pictures and short prose/quotes.

As well as words, this will be my art posting site; drawings, paintings, hand carved stamp art, etcetera.

The old 'she' poems will remain at:

@lowbrowser

Please check them out. And thank you for the visit and follow.
