I Set My Shadow LooseI set my shadow loosethe dreary warmthleaving the touchto find a new specter.Much later...I find her cryingon a highway overpassshe sees me eat a secretI spit the lies in her face“Go away!” I say.She jumps.The water belowwalks ahead of mecarries herwith pocket holesfor breathing.Somedaysomething will drag usback together.For now, I keepthe great poetsbottled insideof this bodyno longer bound.
The Life of the PartyI have been to lots of parties,barricaded by both men & womenthickened with unwinding alcohol.Quite the life you already know,very secret lives, everyone make-belieflying through their cock-thickening mouths....sole motives to only shirk, beat out with eyes,nearly diamonds, the brightness letting us drown.Out of touch .... yet everyone rubs nigh,wandering vacuums, too near to hearwhat's already been spoken, sucking up glow & alluringpersons, whom are feeble ... too far behind.Tinkering hands and looped musicpollinating dingy brains.Spellbind grief, unbearablyreminds you, the life of the party....can't get there from here.

What a Writer must do.To live beyond the worda writer must trust the wounds,human suffering,a preludeof what is about to come.The lack of words is what a writermay need to endeavor.Precisely, revive a bruised landof skinbreathlessly stretchedto the inner acheof all mankind with wineupon the lips, a writer persists,times when there will be nothing leftto feel, belonging at all risk.
Pen NameYour heart is the vital necessity of my existence.The useless woman I had been before you,precedes understanding.Yes, I did have a name, bearing upon scrutiny.O, but you directly named me Asteriaand so “Ashley Saylor” in a sea of poetsdoes not possibly stand out as passionateand honestly not a luxury compared unfairlyto Asteria Sinclair.
I do this for you, really. A pocket full of decomposing starsdelicate bones in drawers,the sightof blood soakingunder newly pedicuredtoes – exciting. Walking home,bird with no wings. Spare some conspiracy,just don't feel up to flying this one night.
SimplyA simple touch and I walk upon the water,A simple kiss and I sail above the clouds,A simple word and I float among the stars,For I simply love you.

MessagesIt started with a text,from him.My heart skipped a beat;every time my eyes,skimmed over that message.Hello,he said.Hi,I said back.The letters began to fly;we talked everyday.It started off,like a tingle.Then exploded;with every text.Saying cute little things,silly love poems.But,he was also there;for the bad times.Where I wanted to cry,he couldn't hold me.No,instead he made me laugh.Nervous.I didn't want to,say it first.Bad relationships in the past;flood my memories.Praying to God;that he isn't like him.But my phone,had the answer.His message,the letters burned in my head:I love you.We wanted to meet,but never had the time.Living two states away;it was impossible.Until that on winter day,when the snowwas just beginning to fall.Someone knocked on my door,I found him with a Christmas present.He stayed the week,lived like husband and wife.Meant to be;but he had to go home.Leaving me alone on News Years,pain filled my heart.I felt alone,
I'm not telepatheticI'm not telepatheticand you aren't too,because you would knowand you wouldn't be angry with me.Therefor, you're thinking of me too.
