The Windy City

We climbed so high that day-
Recklessly in love,
I straddled the Sears Tower.
Burning desires drove us shameless,
mutual heat tore through
our bodies
Like arsonists, we lit Chicago on fire-
yet again.
Hot sex and history making;
twisting tornadoes
spinning wild in the
windy city.
You called me beautiful,
I deemed you so very
Midwestern.
A girl with the gypsy upbringing,
handing out labels-
Ex-husband guy.
Rebound guy.
One night stand guy.

My Sad Cinderella Story

You seemed like a really good catch
until that night at your place
dollar store votive candles
boxed wine
and for dinner
frozen lasagna
you picked up at the drug store
when you got your industrial
size bottle of opiates
now my good catch
began to rot

Mom always told me about
how many
fish there where in
the sea
and I had to land you
the cheap
broke
slimy

When We Were Shadows

Your shoulders now crowded
with love's golden harp-
no space for my heavy
heart to lie;
Symphony harnessed,
and a pas a deux
mesmerize you. I shall hum my
song of discord in silence,
never to disturb your ballad
to love's new joy.

I'll tend to my garden-
of evolving weeds,
I stand quiet and
listless at your side.
Gazing at a new passion
thriving within you.
Stoically, my friend-
I shall not throw my
tarnished sand

A Painted Clown

Thick vials of color, paramount to evil plans-
hours spent gazing at a black canvas
surgical precision, each stroke methodical
to reap the greatest rewards.

Stark white paints sheer evil;
plump red lips, a ghastly show. Eyes turned black
a palette of evil hues. No detail overlooked-
Disguise complete, never paying the toll
to enter our dreams

Perfect villain for centuries gone by.
Children haunted, terrorized into eternity.
Spell cast, never broken. Painted one only whispered about.
Lives spent fleeing his haunting twisted smile.
A grin of satisfaction, painted in perpetuity.

Lurking in dark shadows, always ready
to pounce. I saw him today. Forever chained to his
heart stopping fears. Looking over my shoulder,

Visiting Home

Today I took a trip back-
in time
Standing in a puddle of
deja vu, smack dab
in my childhood
neighborhood

Oh how things had
changed-
It was full of
chipped paint
dying flowers
and broken cars
I guess age took
it's toll-
Things looked old and
broken

I closed my eyes and-
clicked my heels

A Paris State Of Mind

It was the Paris feeling of it all
assaulting my senses
as I slumbered and dreamed
on imagined European time

White noise buzzed
with sophisticated speak
clicking on cobblestone
to Chanel boutique snobbery

As the Eiffel Tower loomed large
drenching the city in warmed light
my dreams paused, to images of home
longing for Lady Liberty, a fine french gift

Scents of the city of lights cling tightly
lavender, roses and mint leaves
hurry me back to my imagined luxury
dreaming of the Hotel Le Bristol Paris

All The Fish In The Sea

I've never liked my-
arctic sleeping partner
Just one ambien,
an a spritz of lavender-
take me out of reality hell
Lead me to sanity dreams and
freedoms calls
Finally millions of light years away-
we are bed partners.

If I die young
from terminal loneliness
or hypothermia-
remember a sun burned girl
with crooked teeth
family vacations at the shore
sinking in burning sand
with our baked bodies
Water so clear
I could see-
