Aurora Borealis

Poem By Kendell Cochrane

I want to be dissolved,
Sift me,
Only to realize glitter
Runs not through these
Tapped out veins,
Though, equivalently
In my defense,
You'll find no
shortage of colour.

Send only warm winds,
& I'll wildly dye
Long, leafless, birch tips,
Before my hands join
The rest of
My wandering soul.

Use my heart like
That of a jar,
Usually home to burnt sienna ink,
paint me into night skies,
Hide the secrets of
It's oceanic depths,
through impeccable calligraphy,
Whisped between magnificently
wondrous stars.

Goldie Locks

I've made a few beds,
I've layed in them all,
Fell short with a few,
With others, too tall


I've thought about heroin,
The rush I've heard she gives,
The way she makes problems vanish
While seeping into your veins,


We don't know how much time we have,
Yet still work to the bone,
To provide a life we think we need,
For those we leave alone,


A certain feeling used
To suffocate my thoughts,
Sometimes it still does,
Leaving me in a blank

Confessions Of Love

Confessions of love
written onto paper,
remaining blank while
Diving deep into thought.


Words spoken in silence
are often meant
for the heart,
or mind,
