Our Bird Song

Poem By Nellekke Tak

“Don’t do that.” He said,
“Every time you loose your pride,
you make it harder and harder for me to love you”

“You know I tried, ” He said
“But your hearts frighten me.
They make me run.”

Why do you make it so hard
For me to love you?

“You’ll never find someone like me again.”
He said,
As he walked back cautiously
Hands in pockets
Head hung low…

“No one who can make you feel this way…”
He said.
As he kissed my neck
Touched my cheek

“You make it so hard for me,
To keep on loving you, ” I said
Pushing him aside
“And that’s why you have to go,
and never come back.”

He kissed me once more
Set my stomach on fire
Walked backwards,
Fell
Called me a liar

He ran from me once again
Dust clouding his trail

“Don’t do that.” I whispered.
“Don’t be this way.”

“Every time you come back, you
Make it harder and harder for me to love you.'

So I played out song
Over and over and over and over and over and

Killing Tinkerbell

And her lips die quick and cold beneath my own
They tremble still,
and her eyes won't close
But you're not here,

To Quite Smoking

Sugar and caffeine are now my drugs of choice
So easily accessible with loose pocket change
But you, my nicotine,
Are a lover I shall bring first hand to the plane

finding yourself entangled between clouds
only fog in the distance
making it to see the end
of a very small earth

I Put A Spell On You...Because You'Re Mine

Infected by a climactic awe
A young room contaminated by a spurred moment
An expectance of invitation
There is no ardor

Old Scratch The Serpent

What have I done,
To bathe these disturbances
The swirl of pretty pink everything
Bouncing along the tile of everyplace in town
