Human Constellations

flesh colored emotions

stars tangled in skin

bones tattooed with scars

clichés, cleft, on the chin

*

a vast sea of people

constellations with smiles

spirits shooting through peepholes

glowing brightly for miles

*

galaxies fill the void

where once, hurt, left its mark

expectations destroyed

still preserving a spark

*

dancing on milky ways

exploration of fear

while the universe plays

diagnosing my tears

*

messages in rare bottles

bobble and wave, in the ocean

pushing the limits of the throttle

expanding the depths of devotion

*

wounded butterflies

adrift the break in the breeze

relearning to fly

arising beyond the trees

    Hi-K ~ Got anything with a little more skin-deep meat in it?...Just joking or am I? Can't imagine how you just whip these marvelous rhymes out. I'm not a Poet and I so know it. But, I am toying with one right now - I may need a Pro Bono consultation from your expertise booklet. btw - Take (3) minutes and view my 'favorite' "Peep Show"...and if you don't get a Giggle from it...stand in line for a show ticket refund...'Probably'. btw; You're such a 'Girl' and I say that in such a complimentary sorta way!
