grey matter

by Tricia Marie Miel

a thousand petals of sweat
rip through like lazy rain
crushing the blood beneath my breast

if only for a moment
my weakness and power are one

the girl I am is a goddess in her bed
a heedless wanton dreaming
of a man on the moon

visions like winter swim out to sea
time will run them over with the language of eternity

in sleep I will always recall
a whisper of a fiddle raw
from playing bittersweet symphonies

or how it felt to fall

and shadows elaborate why...

true love must incubate

I love the first and third lines. Your word pairing is great and so moving. I'm going to favorite it.

Ok I have a plethora of magnetic poetry on my fridge that I mess with. And this awesome poem just inspired me to start putting my musings up on here. Great Poem!
