.bruises and missing bread.

loves not enough in itself by chriseastmids

a poem is just this

a self referential list



i would be

  a work of steel and plastics

  polymer wrapped gold and copper

  singing with gears and ratcheting levers

  dancing gestures


i would be

  skeletal quiet calm

  long gone

  ancient under glass or ground

  observed and ignored

  passed by


i would be


  boxed upon a shelf

  hidden in a busy space

  stacked among similar states

  of others


i would be

  a memory

  a scent of where someone went

  a soft yearning

  a touch

  a brief blur

  things just forgotten

  then gone


i would be

  silicone tears

  melted wax

  burnt sugar

  frayed linen

  crumpled newsprint


  potting soil

  spent lead


i would be


  feather light

  air below ballerina's lifted slipper

  a falling curtain

  a curtsey

  a single note disharmonic


i would be

  a place

  a piece of furniture

  a clock


  a swallow that doesn't catch

  a reminder

  someone's pleasure


i would be



  a temptation

  promises of resurrection


  a shadow


  a wick




i would be

  a door

  crockery smashed

  a used napkin

  mown lawns

  thick ice

  in love


  a temperature

  a spice

  not singular


i would be

  a thousand years ago

  light unobstructed

  virgin again

  a twig just fallen


  clean sheets

  motionless cold


i would be


  ocean pressure


  my daughter's gaze

  a blush

  a stone skipping water

  compassed direction


i would be

  snow fresh fallen

  folded tempered steel

  a single breath

  a lover's heartbeat

  a pressed flower

  an art gallery


i would be

  a knotted ribbon

  three bells

  a finger press

  wet slate


  taken for granted


empty broken windows

i would be
  a neck kissed
  a wrong note
  a stumble
  a right palm
  the scent of vanilla
  a scar
  never missed

.bruises and missed bread.

I became a loom ... a work of wood and oils and flesh and pain ... I became words, woven together to impart myself, an offering of memory and love ... I became a crowd of voices longing for that final color that might complete ... I am Amanda here to open, here to pound loud and set you upon a journey ...

Let me tell you a story ...

Farcebook™ I only use for music and posting links to my work here ... Gargle Plus is the same ... now ... TubeOfYou? lots of music that i likes mmm hmmm

TweakerCreature™ - i might answer i might not ... i never know from day to day; be patient i have things to weave - @blondeonhorse

Tube You My Channel -…

For the ensconced demented deviants among us!

Yes, I AM a gay American woman; and damn proud of that. I flirt shamelessly with females, males, and photos of kittens. Anyone who let’s that go to their heads (eyes.the.homophobic.female.artist) is not only stupid but arrogant.

Tag a quality deviant, You’re it! :iconflyingheartsplz: Quality doesn't mean that you have a lot of followers, or a lot of messages. It means that you’re nice to other people, and you deserve to be happy. :iconheartdanceplz: If you get this message, someone is telling you that they love you as you are, and they don’t care how much followers you have. Send this to 10000 deviants who deserve it. If you break the chain, nothing will happen. But, it’s just good to let someone know that you love them! :iconheartballoonplz:
