The seams in my soul were sewn with rainbows
and my pockets weighed down with the heat of
Summer Skies,

Your eyes coaxed brazen cares from
the scarlet pleats in Passion's skirt, rising
over you like Venus to undress my inhibitions
and clothe you in filigree sensations,

My touch startled your Purity to claim a further
nudity, hotter than the comfort that your creamy
liquor skin used to know, not lapis-cool
in its incarnated remembrance,

But lush as the crimson capture of melodies that sang high through the lofty air, oh how our clothes
melted away, windburned as we touched Summer,
out clothes got lost somewhere on the way
home,

In the park-under the breakable Stars.......
on the faery grown grass, our clothes slided
off our flesh when we started perspiring
too much Passion, in whispers barely there
we were naked,

In not so subtle temptations and with a hint of urgings we were seduced nude, maybe it was the sheer sparkling night that murdered our modesty-or maybe it was just Summer's sorcery, we crammed her into the pores of our memories,

Together we owned her and the serpent imprints that taunted our hearts into another cosmic awareness, and as I recognized a new goddess rising from your crescent core,

I will not resist the element that inspired my change, nor regret the overwhelming passion that peaked my purity wide-eyed, together we were undressed by Summer Solstice.

You are the tongue of blushing oleanders
licking the silences between my heartbeats,
the pause of raw pink scars contemplating
another laceration over my ivory notions,
but my mind is a fragile thing that still
licks the blood from congealing breakfast
over your fingertips, and my consciousness
is shaped by the uncanny tripping of fears
that seduce me open like coffee shop reveries
and sugarless nocturnes, how do I escape
this place feeling so wrong it feels good?
I search for a melody to replace the mad
malady that clutters my skin with another
carmine slice deeper than the bloody last.

I can't help but admit to myself that sometimes
I miss the cutting and the blood I bled prettily,
searching to release the butterflies that fluttered
beneath my skin, I uncluttered the confusion
that stuttered behind my smile instead, and the
emotional fractures that were the familiar alarm
to my fragile heart, I tell myself I deserve better
-but the words are sleeplessly pale and this dark
feeling is too real, I still believe that I don't
belong anywhere, only to the Darkness that cries
for another encore release, so I make my thirteenth
slice bleeding the rainbows in my veins, but on
the floor spill out butterfly wings and wildflowers
scatter their color and I knew I had overstepped
my clumsy care once more, what am I to do to regain
my sanity from the languid lips of this Dream of you?

What am I to do to regain the color of my Wildflower?

No one asked anyone to give a "Woot n Holler Why?" It matters not to me whether anyone gives a Woot n Holler Why?

I am because I am not because of others.

I need no ones validation but my own.

I write for myself not You Ms. Colorado- and yes I am smoking my cigar with my feet placed on a stool drinking a hot toddy and laughing at you.

I bid you adieu Ms. CC I care not about what you have to say. I am done with you and your attack on my person.

You are behaving like a childish bitty and I can hear you clucking like the hen you are.

DONE!!!!!!!!!

Cluck

Cluck

Cluck..........

Please try to control the chemical reactions roaming your head at this time and get yourself together.

Let us see how much control you have over your physiological process.

I bet not as I predict you will be unable to keep yourself from clucking once more.

Cluck

Dedicated to Clucking Hens

Lack of respect

Respect? Yes respect
Lack of respect
Lend us in hot oil
And now we are fried like vianas
Because you lack respect
Yes respect

Respect? Yes respect
Lead you to put your feet inside the packet
And look now
You have fallen so hard in the ground
Because you lack respect

You had foolish remarks
Asked personal question
And proved to the world how jealous you are
Because you lack respect
You questioned facilitator than scenario
How? Because you lack respect for colloquies
Because You mesmerize twaddle
You are futile

Okay, as one of "the others" I follow, no need for your subliminal message below the threshold of conscious perception, causing impetus stumili.

"I write poems to untie myself, to do penance and disappear.....
Through the upper right-hand corner of things, to say "Grace."

"Some moralist or mythological poet
Compares the solitary soul to a swan;

I am satisfied with that,
Satisfied if a troubled mirror show it,
Before that brief gleam of its life be gone,
An image of its state;

The wings half spread for flight,
The breast thrust out in pride
Whether to play, or to ride
Those winds that clamour of approaching night."

With all due respect Devine there was no sumbliminal
message in my post.

Clearly, you have misunderstood what I wrote. It is quite simple.

Grace is my pen name (some people know that and some people do not).

My post was not done without thought or care; nor was it impulsive.

Could it be that the responses to my post were???????

Yes,

You said so yourself. I am not responsible for individuals who cannot control their impetus behavior.

And I refuse to take responsibility for anyone who does save myself.

Adrienne Rich

Responsibility to yourself means refusing to let others do your thinking, talking, and naming for you…it means that you do not treat your body as a commodity with which to purchase superficial intimacy or economic security; for our bodies to be treated as objects, our minds are in mortal danger. It means insisting that those to whom you give your friendship and love are able to respect your mind. It means being able to say, with Charlotte Bronte’s Jane Eyre:“I have an inward treasure born with me, which can keep me alive if all the extraneous delights should be withheld or offered only at a price I cannot afford to give.”

What is so great about being the one?
The one who has responsibility
If anything goes wrong and likely it will
It comes back to the one with accountability
Responsibility is the burden so many must bear
The load, the strong must be willing to carry
Someone has to be responsible for things
Not everyone can party, be happy and be merry
You must have a DD, a Designated Driver

RESPONSIBILITY

When you do a foolish thing
Of which you can't disclaim,
And even if admitting fault
Will bring you utter shame,
Rise above your shallow pride
And with proud voice proclaim,
"I TAKE RESPONSIBILITY!"

...if there's no one to blame.

You know that thing you should have done
but picked other things instead?
That thing entrusted just to you
that now won't leave your head?

A certain person counting on you
to have rightly done what's due
Will soon find out you did not
that thing you promised to

That guilty buzz inside your mind
that will not let you sleep?
The thoughts of it that hang around
and into all thoughts creep?

The knowledge that quite soon you will
be found to be remiss?
And soon be hoping painfully that
you will find forgiveness?

That is the voice of reason
the one that helps you see
that always guilt will come to those
who lack responsibility

Not at all...you see "Grace" you know my real name, it's Adrian...

However with you it's most confusing.....I was under the misapprehension that "Check_Your_ Pulse" was your "pen" name, now to cloudy the waters even more, you're stating that "Grace" is your "pen" name, if that's the case then whose initials are CYP ?

"Devine" is my pen name, so if you don't want to be addressed by your real name, that's your prerogative and your exclusive right.

Although I thought it was a woman's privilege to change her mind ?

Kind Regards,
Adrian (DeVine) Knight.

With what stillness at last
you appear in the valley
your first sunlight reaching down
to touch the tips of a few
high leaves that do not stir
as though they had not noticed
and did not know you at all
then the voice of a dove calls
from far away in itself
to the hush of the morning

so this is the sound of you
here and now whether or not
anyone hears it this is
where we have come with our age
our knowledge such as it is
and our hopes such as they are
invisible before us
untouched and still possible

Check Your Pulse refers to a physiological response to stimuli. It is in reference to my career and my work outside of writing.
