    will the ghost of you return
    to the place
    where we hardly ever met?
    where the mirror
    that you keep in your chest
    remembers
    some sort of childhood
    heart-practice
    played out
    in kingdoms
    made of us.

    would you give me back
    the crown
    that's been forgotten
    in the knowing of others
    less deserving
    of my wild hands
    that endure your birds
    through the fire
    of your eyes?

    i'm standing here,
    full of the mistakes
    that break me.
    full of the mistakes
    that make me,
    waiting for a sign
    that it even matters,
    these words that fall
    like careless diamonds
    from my lips.

    what is left of the body
    when the love is gone?
    does it decay,
    like i have,
    in this hushing
    of my inner self?

    feel your hands slide
    into the mysteries
    of my body
    while you can
    if you will.
    i am more
    than the hammers
    of adoration.
    i am always becoming
    everything completely...

      Wow. I generally don't care for the more contemporary poems, preferring the more traditional and classic rhyme schemes. But something about your work really speaks to me, and makes me appreciate the oxymoronic simplicity and complexity of this poetic language. I'm quite envious, as I can't write this style of poetry to save my life! ^_^

    Be kind, take a few minutes to review the hard work of others <3
    It means a lot to them, as it does to you.
