Like Poetic Hearts

Edge through those paved contours.

Sketching memory, marking scalds

Upon a bark, skin peeling like

Pistachio flakes; mindful mysteries

Mindlessly pried open. Caught curious.

Crack.

Like seeking wintery leaves on

Foliage sleeves

Amidst sweet summer sweat.

-

Snowflakes splatter

Bitter blue ice like butterflies of

Emotion. Those tattered wings

Like hallelujah whispered hymns. Epiphany

Like inspiration

Sends us drowning, like aspiration

Drug-high. We let go those

Thoughts like spinning tops awry.

-

Beating sun like

Watered waves of gold. Nectar

Spills itself onto the grass

Skating skin. Such swishing sensory.

Pen gripped in hand. Sensuously fibrous white

Sheets of imprinted words now

-

Suspend like dangling dew drops waiting

For painful dimensions, dams of mind

To pour and send them swirling down,

Like in glassy melting winds where

Hurricane rounded sounds

Fall dancing--

My rain pelts of the heart.


A/N: Unedited and unrefined. Hoping someone would review and give me a critique of the poem so I can actually work on my writing. I haven't gotten a review in forever.
