Poem By Meredith Fahey

I watched the moon fall down in your eyes
As the night gave way to morning
I had to go yet you had me linger still
Wanting to hold your nightingale
And hear her mournful songs, for comfort
Please don’t pluck my feathers and ask me to fly
Hearts don’t grow and mend you know
I watched the stars fade in your eyes
As you realized what you did to me
How human you became
No more of a guiltless animal
You know the sorrow
I’m sorry lion
I can’t sing for you again
My voice has been quieted
As these feelings overwhelm us
The human world and all its suffering
Are upon us
I should never have sung my praises
As we danced under the harvest moon
And sang to mother earth

Goddess Of Bedhead

If I went to bed with you
Would I find you a god in the morning
Or the ghost of some late night regret?
What would I be to you?

Rabbit Hole

I tumble into your heart,
And lay sprawling, panting, catching my breath in this strange place,
This exotic geography of lips and kisses and laughter
I take a moment to look around, this place I've never been before, love.

Peter Pan

You are a constellation in my night sky
Guiding me home
Straight from the North Star
Until morning


I am broken
I am shades of darkness
Filtered through your pain

Sea Of Love

Tides of this lust
Sent crashing into bodies
Into pools of sex
Animals, demons, angels, fish


I make love to you in this place out of time
Where I am not scared of you discovering me beneath the skin
We make ripples in the fabric of time as we explore and cry out
Tearing down the walls of reality and fantasy
