Poetry

The party

I could celebrate
What, you ask?
Anything
Nothing
Who cares?
‘Tis not the cause
But, the company
Let there be glitter!
In the middle of the room
I swirl
Vast emptiness
In every peripheral
No echoes
Confetti falling
Adding to silence
No one came to the party
Not even you
Sour now

Poetry

I have a book!

Greetings, friends!

My first book is available for pre-order in Kindle format! Release date is March 1st, at which time it will be available in both electronic and paperback formats!

Thank you for the support of everyone here, especially those around from the beginning, when I first started sharing the poetry.

As I’ve said, I post mostly to Twitter now, so follow me there, too! @hellolauren528

Here’s a look at the cover!

Poetry

Play the blues

Turn these melancholy blues
Into gentle strums
That calm my heart
Soothe my soul
While I dance alone

Poetry

A fine drink

Where is the man
That ages like fine whiskey
A smooth scotch
Who will drip from my tongue
Forming sultry words on skin?
Lips parted
Insides awaiting
His slow, pleasant burn

Poetry

Now

Impossible
Improbable love
Before me
You
In the future
Me
In the past
An intense death
At first bloom
Now
A glimmer
In the present
Passion
Thought dead
Manifests
Forgiveness
Flowers
Fire
Yearning is deep
Daydreams are of you
Nocturnal warmth from you
It’s time
Come ’round

Poetry

Response

What will you do
To illicit a proper #response?
Shall you honey the tongue
With sweet, sugared words?
Might you excavate every curve
Dusted over by the past?
Will you lie your head between my thighs
Listen to my pulse where you did not know it could be heard?
Could you be you with just me?


I’m pretty much only posting on Twitter at this point. Able to interact with folks more. Follow me there! @hellolauren528

Poetry

Ironic

Edging toward the edge of feeling
Ceasing to be a being
Slowly dying
All energy exerted
In brightness for the masses
Hoping for the hopeless
Resplendent idol
Stone soul
Cracked
The leprous and withered abyss calls
Fallacy, and yet, a symphony
I think I’ll jump, sleep

Poetry

Last Dance

How dare you waltz back into my space
My heart is closed
No tenets
No reentry
Still, I’ll slow dance with you
Let you touch me wherever you please
Dark poetry culminates in a brief relapse of you, my drug
This is our last song, final death
Twirl me, properly, please

Poetry

Invisible woman

Invisible woman meandering crowded streets unnoticed
The noise
Maddening
Lost in a society void of intimacy
White elephant
Devalued by rarity
My heart will toil no more
I allow it to atrophy with all other muscle, feeling, emotion
Silence walking
