My eyes are blurred from senseless dreaming
My mind a constant waste
My nights are longer than forever
My needs are met in haste.

The nights grow infinitely darker
The shadows are my Muse
The days are journeyed nothings
In misery I feel abused.

My hopes and fears run parallel
They beat within my heart
My shine is rusted saline tears
They come and go...then start.

Busted open ribbon wrapped
Token kisses all now trapped
For memories all displaced and gone
Chills run tremors to my bones.

Knees tucked high beneath my chin
Long-lipped lines where smiles have been
Sparks of azure turned to grays
Gone the nights with misted days.

Happenstance of a ghost
Forayed rape of the coast
Stagnate heart in packaged... wrapped
Meets and greets a heart...entraps.

Silly, stupid woman-child
Get thee up and walk that mile
Leave to fester rotting dreams
Garaged up with trash and things.

Timelines teach a lesson well
Foolish Damsel in your Hell
Pick your head up from your knees
Try a smile and don't you bleed.

Learn from this and beckon those
Who only stand upon tiptoes
To kiss the nose of one this blue
Must reach a doilied cloud or two.

Gotta watch those doilied one's with all that bric-a-brac lacing around the edges. Loved the mood and tone and premise of this well-done poem, Susan. It has that woe-is-me-get-that-cloud-away-from-my-head style, but then . . . but then . . . it got righteous and lifted that head from those knees wet from bawling all damn night. Yes! This one took.

It's good to keep our heads up in those clouds.....:)
