like honey,
the alcohol works its way
to her belly. with trembling
hands, she collects the phone
&curls on the couch.
her fingers pulse along the same
seven familiar numbers,
&her breath bates for the chance
of hearing his warm voice. there is nothing but
the empty ring tone. still, words slip from her tongue
and catch along the key with the pound sign.

i just--
i wanted you to know
i remember
the time we walked for ice cream
and i pushed you in the wheelchair.
remember, you pretended your legs were broken
just to see the funny looks from older ladies
when you rose from the chair
like it was nothing strange.
i remember your crazy stories and the way you always
lied. you wanted to burn away your fingertips to find
a new identity, and i always worried so much for you
when you said winter was a season
for sadness.
i thought maybe then our tangled webs would enclose us
like a tiny cocoon
but destiny walked, instead,
to the vending machine
for a diet coke.

you always said
you had better things to do
than spend time with me
while we ate pancakes at the dollar buffet.
we sat on your couch
eating cupcakes i had baked--my attempt to
wiggle
into the cold of your crumbling apricot heart,
and you asked, with a sly grin, what time it was that i was leaving.

but i'll never forget the warmth from your sleeve
pressed into my arm
or the glow of your smile and bright chocolate eyes
at the one thing i ever said that was funny.
you were always the orange-pink of a sunset,
the aching beat of my heart when you were too afraid to hold me.
every time i left you, i always wept
but i was glad for the tears,
glad to feel anything for you.
my heart aches for you--
for being fourteen and struck with love--
but with you, i was always blue.

&i just wanted to tell you
that maybe i won't always dream
the scent of your house--that maybe you won't always
be the first--that maybe i will forget the ice cream flavor (moose tracks),
the days i visited you (always wednesday and sunday),
&the person that you were--
but i will never forget
the way you made me feel
every second that i knew you.

Destiny Walks

Destiny walks,
Leaving Faith...behind
Divulges Silence,
And Swallows time...

Destiny walks,
As i shudder in fear
A moment to late,
To be sincere...

Destiny walks,
In my backyard, it stares
Destiny walks....
To show...she cares...

Returning after a busy spell

"Revelation"

Destiny walks down my front path,
Moving like a vapour or liquid form
Writhing and convulsing--fading in and out
I'm given to wonder if it is really the static thing
I saw outside my window last night.

A virulent fear of the inevitable to come,
A warring of Titan-like unseen forces
Where I'm expected to be trapped within
This morning Destiny looked putrid and weak
And I'm beginning to not believe in its power over me.
7, the pure flower

Destiny walks these streets
and dances in my backyard.
The stars all peer down just to watch her.
Bright colored dressed flowing all around her,
singing and laughing, singing and laughing.
Cradled in the evening, she shakes her head
in mirth. Her eyes glinting with the fire
her skin changing to the different colors of the sky
the moonlight glistens on her hair.

Very un-Torish, but hell! -- I'm gone for a week, it doesn't matter! Love you all, be good while I'm away and spoonlike and dove95 are in charge.

I don't have full moderator options because _tedious left without giving me authority on how to change the community profile page.

So . . .

Destiny walks


I would really appreciate it if more people would participate this go-round so that I can have something to show _tedious when she gets back.

Any questions or concerns, ask me :)
