Missing

How long have I been running from you?

the pounding of my heart,

the dampness of my thighs.

How long have I neglected you?

Fearful of your whispers

your longing

your insatiable desire.

Really I am like the rest of you,

a tyrant in sheep’s clothing,

a hunter cloaked in a façade.

As I pick up speed,

The forest crashes under my feet.

Branches scratching at my skin,

Tearing at my hair,

Bloodying my body.

It is here in this cathedral

I am seeking punishment,

I am seeking to be free.

I hear myself panting

breathless

Trying to escape the shame

the guilt

that isn’t even mine.

 

That’s how I went missing.

Queen

I yearn for you to look at me with hunger

to crush my ruby red mouth, swollen by your kisses.

I want you to be drunk in my beauty

intoxicated by my scent and taste.

I want to hear of the lifetimes you have traveled to be by my side

To find me with my crown, clasped in my bloodied hand

My crown encrusted with jeweled secrets, heavy with burden

So easy for you to hold.

Do you hear me calling you across the generations?

To match my quick wit and clever mind

To conquer my body, my sovereign nation

To captivate my heart and rule by my side?

Hear my call O’ King

come and awaken what has been sleeping

Hold me as I rise and claim my rightful place as Queen.

I see you.

the owl winks, his eyes knowing

the whispers of the moon.

feel his wings

create the wind of my heart,

the heart that pulses

with the blood of all nations.

Sometimes I am a supernova

exploding into the darkness and silence of

the night sky.

And sometimes I am the mystery

that calls you in.

Crawl inside my divine opening

and I will meet you there

with a warm embrace.

Crawl inside my divine opening

and I’ll take you on a journey

to another place.

unresponsive

unresponsive

No matter how many times I try

to resuscitate you

You remain lifeless.

I shake

I scream

I yell

I love.

You remain frozen,

lifeless.

Yet I know you are there.

I see you when your guard is down

I see you out of the corner of my eye

I see you when you least expect it

I see you.

With all my love I call to you

With a reverent fervor, I cry out your name,

But you remain,

lifeless.
