fear

this creature
made for sky
high above all

a creature
who knows it itself
looking at its equals
with longing

a bird
with fear of heights

death of a…

Looking at my baby
trustworthy
sucking my breast
feeding in my warmth

this shining child
this God

growing
dictating my days and nights
knowing I will be there
doing, breathing unison

Whose the greatness
is there
such a thing?

Grinning
determined now
baby

cannot be

I push her face
against my soft brim
not a sound

Die

there can only be me

Sometimes a poet would like to explain (I do) what a particular poem means, but I won’t spoil it for you. And don’t be scared, I’m no human baby killer.

Apr 8

beast

look at me
understand
look
I’m scared
and hurt

the beast
has awakened

it will eat
the worlds
eat me

when I’m gone
world
no longer exist
nor does
the beast

what is fear

standing on the edge
winds blowing
tearing me
apart
closed eyes
I’m terrified, paralysed

deep darkness
awaiting underneath
talking to myself
I’m not scared
no, I’m not

turning my head
sensing the depths
this wind
yes, it blows
but it’s warm

open my eyes
looking up
instead
the sky is singing
that windy lullaby

fill my lungs
spread my wings

I can fly
