I the tiny snowflake and you the snow.

Shot a rebel through the heart.
Cancer kills but life is art.
You tried to put a stop to all that we are,
But we are too hot to handle; you can’t grab hold of a star.

Fire your guns; I’m invincible.

I can’t always be your salvation.
One day I will rip you apart.
I won’t always be a helping hand,
Because one day I will reach inside and tear out your heart.

Rainer Maria Rilke translation: The Panther
The Panther
by Rainer Maria Rilke
loose translation/interpretation by Michael R. Burch

His weary vision's so overwhelmed by iron bars,
his exhausted eyes see only blank Oblivion.
His world is not our world. It has no stars.
No light. Ten thousand bars. Nothing beyond.

Dreamer weaves 
her golden words
like breath brought
her into a new world
each chord held 
she remembers holding 
the constellation
Virgo in her arms 
in time small windows
open midnight blue
glistening jade
they reign over her
a Lion whispering 
the oddest nursery rhymes, 
lullabies she's remembering

Grey ghostly clarions
Swiftly travel
To the east of darkling day
Riding on a dirge wind
Blowing harsh
Over waters that reflect
The fading dawn
When they turn to blood red, 
Glowing crimson,
As they color the vast and swirling grey
Trumpeting to the earth,
With light retreating,
The call of...Read More

Why he chose 
To be with me whoa

Freedom tastes like fresh air, 
that very first sigh
when the work clock finally strikes five;

Freedom smells like new money,
when you can leave the house 
spend it, come back and throw a  party; 

Freedom looks like an open road,

there are butterflies under the sea
and fish in the air today
willows wept over the moon
and stars giving

where words 
lose their shapes
with their spurs
and fingers with lips

Born of a star,

With their skyward gaze
Dashing through newborn dewdrops
Creating playful shadows

What are the soul suckers
 that forcibly cleave to you?
What do they mean to you?
Why do you let them steal from you?

Next I’ll get you

To make you well again

In the sprinkles of moondust

Sacred of white magic

Rambling of a paired star, pardoned,

wherein, the errant star took pace,
foreboding star came into view,
