Time Squares

IT’S OVER

It's Over

Let it go
because breathing
is more important
than not;
holding tight
is for arms –
not lungs

SECOND PRIORITY

Second Priority

Love is not being second priority on a list.

NOURISHMENT OF THE HEART

Nourishment of the Heart

Nourishment of the heart
feeds a variety
of rising hungers

EMPTY BOX

Empty Box

An empty box is filled with possibility, and nothing less.

REBORN

Reborn

. . . and with every touch, another piece of me is reborn

SILENCE

Silence

And I am left speechless enough to know that words cannot fill a void like silence.

© Tamara Natividad | pisceanesque.com | Written 8 March, 2017

TRULY FREE

Truly Free
The free are simply surrounded by ignorance; the truly free, bound by love.

HOW DIVINE

How Divine

How divine
that thought can both
dress and undress the mind
without even leaving it

THE MOUTH OF SILENCE

The Mouth of Silence

Fluid
the mouth of silence
while the drowning poet
writes to starve the
mind of words

INCEPTION

Inception

Time: a purpose
built for frolic and fancy;
an infinite seduction
so exquisite
that it’s yet to be considered to exist;
a burden so nameless
that life abandons it
almost upon inception.

TO PAUSE

To Pause

Abandon me
so I may postpone
this satisfaction
and
for an irrelevant time alone
subsist on nothing
but my starving need
for your fulfillment

IT WAS LIKE

It Was Like

It was like
you were something
I should not permit myself to see
but the voyeur I make no apologies
for becoming
stripped you down to bare flesh
fully clothed
while I peeked between the slats
of fact and fancy.

I HAVE LOST

I Have Lost

I have lost
you: lost myself
in the search
to find us both.

MY PASSING

My Passing

Come lay with me
so that I
with any luck at all
pass into the night
– yours, being the last face
I shall ever desire to see.

EVENTUALLY

Eventually

Every second we touch
leads us closer
to separation.

I would rather watch
for there is no end
in sight
to this vision.

SILENT WORDS

Silent Words

Every word you don’t speak
is simply one more
that I would happily wait a lifetime
in silence
to hear

KNIT

Knot

You could be made of
the fanciest yarn that
binds forever
your empty space
and you would still
knit me a reason
to love everything
you were actually not

LOVE RAPTURE

Love Rapture

my fingers
trace your outline;
every
hardened wave
and liquid curve
the perfect shape
to precisely enclose
my rapturous heart

LIGHT AND DARK

Light and Dark

There might be darkness
where there is no light
but there surely
cannot be me
if there is no you

© Tamara Natividad | pisceanesque.com | Written 4 July, 2014

FROZEN

Frozen

If I were the ice
and you were the sun
I would
drip
until there was nothing left of me
but a reflection of you
in my puddle.

APPETITE

Apetite

If I starved myself of food
I would never feel empty
because someone
with a taste for beauty
made you delicious.

© Tamara Natividad | pisceanesque.com | Written 12 January, 2014

I KNEW

I Knew

I knew
that I would let you
swallow me whole
so I pretended
not to notice
and enjoyed
you watching.

JIGSAW

Jigsaw

Part of me
is lost
in a jigsaw puzzle
where the image
I am putting together
is looking more
and more
like you.
