nocturnal

I dream each grain of the ocean bed

anemone, coral reef

jellyfish blooms –

colours that unbend, unravel

tied in ribbons in knots of fragile wind I may be

a wisp of cloud

a wingless, songless bird soaring,

flailing

the black of night came and my grief gave.

now i am undone.

Terror of loving

someone

some place as fragile as this;

between my teeth I bite the bit

like a rabid bitch

refuse to let go.

Over to you folks, let me know what you think:
