shade of my heart

shade of my heart                            October 24, 2015
there is always more shade in the winter
when the sun is low and crystalline
in the desert sky

i hate you
shade of my heart
you will come again in your season
as soon as i
have found my stride on the ice floes
of the frozen river you call love
you will come again
to shatter my peace
and shred my family

it takes no prophecy
to predict you
i shall always be
the warmth you crave
and are compelled
to control and posses

About m

My ego wants to think I'm a writer but my heart knows I'm just another one of God's Kids who sometimes has words to say. 2 human kids and 3 feline kids call me Mom. Or Mooooooom. Or mewom, depending which you ask. I'm kinda-sorta busy being a student again; this time I signed myself up for a bizarre torture known as Graduate School. Theoretically in 4ish years I'll have earned some more nice letters to put with my name. Let's face it, I'm addicted to learning and probably need rehab to restore me to sanity and remove the obsession to read books. I don't remember what free time is but I think I like to spend it sleeping or playing in the mud on a river bank.
