Star Ka'at's Ramblings

{January 31, 2011}   Weep Beneath The Trees

Cold embrace
Rent my heart
Yearning, broken

Filter my tears
Open, never
Reason lost

Trip, scream
Empty, shattered

Death, so final
Earth, so heartless
Anguish, so wracking
Take not my love
Hindered from life

Options not given
Favors not granted

Run, run
Over, stumble
Bent, agony
Inner, hollow
Never again

Herald not the dawn
Offer not food or drink
Open the earth
Defend, only a memory


{January 30, 2011}   Me And Anti-Me

Slapped awake
Snapped alert
Shaken violently
Thrown to the ground

Who are you?
Why treat me so?
Pain so great
You will kill me soon

Turn and look
Blood blurred vision
No, no, no
It’s me

Two of me
Too many of me
Me and anti-me
Dear God, help me

One dark, one light
One dirty, one clean
One armed, one broken
Both hurting, both dying

{January 29, 2011}   Desire

Why the whispering
Why the voices
Wave my arms
Nothing there

Clawing, tearing
Screaming, crying

{January 28, 2011}   Profile

Spiral through
The mind alone
Leaving soul and heart

Wade through
Perceptions alone
Leaving murky feelings?

Distance kept
Or compromised self
And they’ll spiral through you

{January 27, 2011}   Breach Anon

Once more
Into the breach
Out of reach
Now, anon

Blink once, twice
Spin around
Fight or flight
Death or life

{January 26, 2011}   Clint Pereira

Of death
Do you ask

Of life
Do you share

Of sacred things
Do you what
Gray minded

{January 25, 2011}   Take A Trip In My World

Wrap in my cloak
Fasten on my shoes
Snug down my hat
Take a trip in my world

See, feel, think
Perspective mine
Set aside thine
Take a trip in my world

Observe keenly
Passions, hatreds, fears
Loves, griefs, despairs
Take a trip in my world

Peer inside
Hopes, dreams, wishes
Perhaps buried, but never lost
Take a trip in my world

Burning fury of the emerald dragon
Sparkling existence of shy fairies
Winking stars above a forest home
Take a trip in my world

Wield a sword with ease
Release arrows without thought
Fight for justice true
Take a trip in my world

Sleeping or waking
Drift always between dreams
The one of flesh and blood
The one of comfort and hopes

Who are you to deny my dreams
To scorn and laugh at my hopes
You who dare to mock and spite
Open your eyes, open you heart

Wrap in my cloak
Fasten on my shoes
Snug down my hat
Take a trip in my world

{January 24, 2011}   Let Fly

Written to the tune of “Brian Boru’s March” as performed by Loreena McKennitt.

Dance, step
Kick, spin
Smile, laugh
Let fly

Hear the instruments
Feel the music
See the joy
Let fly

Joyous, one two
Radiant, three four
Vibrant, five six
Let fly

Hair a whirl
Sweat drips
Muscles ache
Let fly

Dreams awaken
Soul revives
Energy thrives
Let fly

Passerby gaze
Blood tingle begins
Feet tap
Let fly

Happiness spreads
Paying the piper
Healing the hearts
Let fly

{January 23, 2011}   Daily Grind

So much
So little
All work
No pay


Day in
Day out
Daily grind
Daily bind


{January 22, 2011}   How Long, My Love
Here I stand, tall and unmoving
Back straight, heart broken
Tears unceasing, my eyes clouded
Stained and tattered, endless vigil
My raiments have turned to rags

My feet sink into the sand
Pulled constantly by the ocean
The wind whips and pummels
Hailstone rain and shattering waves
Lightning my only torch

How long, my love
Till sunrise in my soul
How long, my love
Till I am whole again in body and spirit
Till you can enfold me in your arms

How Long My Love
