poetry

Porcelain Seconds


The breath of the moment
Melts into life
Like diamonds
Swimming on top of liquid gold

Words left unspoken
Define what is told
Between sheets of comprehension
And letting go

Frayed to the bone
The burning is slow
The fall
Just a ruffle of feathers

And in the pale shoes of memory
Fragmented truths
Reflect anthems
Grown into rays of light

In a darkened room
Hope sails beyond all reasons
Trading sins
For porcelain seconds

As an armful of glitter
Lassoes the moon
Limitations are all
There is to loose
