Star Ka'at's Ramblings

{July 30, 2013}   That Remain

Her purple eyes
Locked and gazing
Softest hair
Cut and jagged

Broken and joyful
Desolate and elated
I wept
I laughed

On she traveled
Where I would never go
On she spread happiness
Where I would never see

Her perfect form
In the brightening dawn
Crystallized, burst
Thousands of tiny lights

Her spirit
Her memory
Soul fragment to dwell
In those that remain


{May 26, 2013}   Desolation Way

Drifting through
Sunless wastes
Moon glares
Desolation way

Empty should be full
Wanting cease
Dripping wistful
Black dreams

Walk the ghostly seas
Sail the sand less shores
Bloodless rent
Death never comes

{April 8, 2013}   Death Night

The wolf howls
Soft snow muffled
Now running, running
Endless distance

No glances
Ever forward
Pushing, driving
Endless distance

Deepening gloam
Other side of life
Drawing, bringing
Endless distance


{March 25, 2013}   The Jester’s Life

Maladjusted jester
Dances merrily
Unconcerned denial

Fruit cake
Flutes and strings
Jingling bells

King and god stands


{February 22, 2013}   Homecoming

Undertaken journey
so long
Finally home
so tired

Smokey horizon
Thicker, closer
breath hard

Through our field
tall, brown
Around the barn
sturdy, full

Broken mirror
My reflection


I try
Why, why

Rains now
too late
Sitting in mud


{February 19, 2013}   Nowhere Slum

Beating, beating
Red fists
Red ground
No one in breath

To dirt
To face
Backs turned

Night climbs high
Tiny child
Tiny knife
Cold hands on taut rope

Stiff tumble
Tiny tears
Trembling body
“Don’t leave me, Papa!”


{February 15, 2013}   Her

A lonely figure
On hilltop high
Bound straight
To oak tall

Her hair long
Uncared and lank
Upturned her face
And pale

Thin, stained
Clad her
Graceful folds
Torn, still beautiful

I reach for her
I am reached for
I would kill for her
I am killed for her


{February 7, 2013}   Star Light, Star Bright

Star light, star bright
Gives hope, light
Takes tears, fright

The first star I see tonight
Through gloom, delight
In pain, respite

I wish I may, I wish I might
In wrong, do right
In darkness, find sight

Have the wish I wish tonight
A broken knight
Dying beneath moonlight


{February 10, 2012}   Words of Life

Lips of an angel
Bitter, sweet, true
Words sent to pain
Long, hurt, deep

Sounds so sweet
Strong to weak
Find to lost
Dying to life


{November 10, 2011}   Slow Death

Mourn slowly
Mourn long
Mourn the long death
Of mind depredation

Aware, unaware
Simply fading
Changing, leaving
Stand, tremble, watch

We are left
Empty, alone
Family, friends
Wishing, crying

Your body
Your face
Your smile
Your mind is gone
