Blinking

at the cemetery
blinking through tears..
still missed
after all this time…

Leaving

her window filled with Spring..
I hold my mother’s hand
as her spirit leaves…

become

at the time of birth there was no more to become,
all that i became will erode away at death,
ready for rebirth

heartbeat

The ticks of time are told within
Your chambers beat within your skin,
90 not 60 per min,
Your clock will stop, you wear it thin.

Lullaby

Translating the woods in my head
With words made of darkness —
— The world is not for everyone
But it is an oyster for those who are dead
