Lemosyne the River of forgetfulness

My hours are married to Shadows....

“In the hours they spent chewing my bones, I grew a stone for my heart, and poisoned the rivers that ran through me. I studied the bloodless moon.”
H.C.M

“Some girls are full of heartache and poetry and those are the kind of girls who try to save wolves instead of running away from them.”

“There is something about words.

In expert hands, manipulated deftly, they take you prisoner.

Wind themselves around your limbs like spider silk, and when you are so enthralled you cannot move, they pierce your skin, enter your blood, numb your thoughts.

Inside you they work their magic.”

Love is a medicine I must confide,

sweet dosage of cinnamon & cyanide.

you whom I long for,  

how endless your not-returning,

you as shadow till the day of days.

At times, I wish to disappear

like an ancient myth,

wandering in books,

unaware of its touch.

 

At times, like the withering foliage…

Untouched, crumpled, and gone…

At times like the winds, which no one can see…

 

At times like the heartbeats,

existing in bosoms yet can only

be felt with pressed hands… and someday,

if I do manage to become an air of

senselessness,I would tap and tap like

rain on the coffin of my own mortality.

“My love,

                ah,

how much love you have in your eyes for me,

here we stand at this bridge…

interplaiting our fingers in one moment,

in the next,

                I jump.”

May we eat the knowledge

of suffering,

may we eat the bitter

waste of the false food we have fed

others.

May we eat it in pain, and in time.

It is the time for the Holly King

(the king of darkness) to do battle

with the Oak King

(king of lightness) once again.

 

In December the days begin to lengthen and

the Oak King conquers the Holly King and

 reigns during the light times.

 

Including a bonfire as an offering of light

and fire and an appeal to the sun to warm

the earth once again.

 

"We are being guided to heal,

reflect and nurture ourselves,

with the purpose of being able to step

into our best possible selves when we

reenter the world."

 

Take a moment...

Stand still as the "Winter Solstice" happens.

But grief compels me,

maybe even more than sleep.

I am waiting for something to last.

I know nothing will.
