Clutching for balance
Unavoidable through straw stark nights
Lost within the gap
Caged in need,
Of rippled static
Surrender in the frightful whirlwind
That moves in silence,
Like a thief in the night
To open wounded doors
And swell in my belly
A nebulous mouth,
Until everything rushes out,
And left with a bosom unfettered
Words & Art by: NaRa
I found the stars in puddles today…and poured them in my cup.
A cup of stars…
Washed down and warmed my belly.
It took the brown out of my skin
And turned it porcelain.
I thought I could glow like this forever,
But the incredible light burst forth from me
And dazzled into a trillion colors.
And this was what was left of me
Hues swirling through eternity,
To fill up countless irises
Of wishers and kissers of the night.
To shine upon velvety skin,
Of girls that I could have never been.
And when they bathe naked
They absorb my energy,
To color their cheeks rose
And their navels, for the tongue of a boy…That will love them.
