Keep Me

Poem By Natasha Ashwe

Keep me
In an untouched place in your heart
And upon a sacred altar
Do this
For me so that my own diligent religion
Will not cause me to go under
You may
Love everything you touch
And lust
More elegant beings than I’ve power to be
But do not
Ever put out the candle burning in your soul
I could keep alight
For eternity.

Saves Me

I trust the night
I trust the stars that shine
I trust the moon
I know its love’s divine

I Love To Watch You

I love to watch you
My eyes become moths drawn by a flame
And you flicker in directions
That are fingers and thumbs on a guitar that’s playing

A Beautiful Flower

I know of a beautiful flower
With a sense beguiling fragrance
Where nectar like honey flows
With a sting

My Maelstrom

It’s a rock song and I won’t let you in it
Step away from my maelstrom
Bits of torn metal shred me to bits to submit
My soul to the earsplitting blast of drums

Let Me Not Know

If it were so let me not know
That never did you want me
