rubbah and horns


Happy Birthday to Yooooooooooooouuuus
Happy Birthday to Yooooooooooooouuuus
Happy Birthday circlek, rivet, and simplyred
Happy Birthday to Yooooooooooooouuuus

This hasn't been an easy year for any one of you, I know.

I hope this year is a beautiful antithesis, a shining daybreak from the darkness of last year's storm. I send each one of you wishes for happiness and health this coming year and always :) Much love to you!

And a big happy belated birthday to frosty! I haven't known you terribly long, but I'm already struck and impressed by your kindness, intelligence and friendliness :) Hope the upcoming year is a wonderful one for you, and I look forward to getting to know you better!

I write bad poetry when I think nobody's looking.

I don't want, yet am left wanting in my own wantonness

I don't want a part time love
one who smiles and flatters and comes and then goes
I don't want to be scheduled in
like a luncheon
I don't want to be fantasy
antithesis to reality
I don't want to breathe on stolen time

I don't want to battle your demons
invited inside to stay
I don't want to be analgesic
for long-term regrettable pain
I don't want to be an ancillary
to a primary cum secondary
Browning's tears and laughters, eyes sublime

I want you stark naked on May Day
I want you all mine to devour
I want you to scream all your secrets
I want you to taste Beltane's flower

And I want you to talk like a pirate
And I want you to sing of the sea
And I want you to show me each one of your treasures
O, bring back my bonnie to me

slings and arrows be damned

I'm a sucker for great tragic heros,
Apollo's great arrow, fly free!
As I fall into fear, it's suddenly clear...
Oh. that great tragic heroine's me.

So I'm left somewhere quiet and empty,
amidst thank-yous and god-were-you-greats;
awaiting occasion for love's sweet persuasion,
humbled by cruel laughing fate...

...or perhaps I humble myself.

Note to self - fix the me/me repetition and rearrange this a bit, if you ever come back to it.
