marks of existence (november 2008)

Posted: July 21, 2010 in Uncategorized

wine stained lips
nicotine rings
caffeine-induced stupor
-i sleep with

goldfish eyes
battered mind
homesick soul
-i smile (in spite of)

suburban calm
distant city noise
ocean dejavu
-there is hope amidst

the moon remains full in this in-between world
fighting for eternal light from the ever elusive sun
i wake up with scars from this ethereal war
-i am marked. i leave marks. i live.

meanwhile…

i sip my wine
dark as night
sweet as sin
-here’s to morrow.
