Star Ka'at's Ramblings











{March 28, 2017}   Jaded

Jaded and faded
Outdated and traded
Dreamless and hopeless

No goals, no drive
My purpose is for others
The self is empty

Fight to abstain
From love and life
In vain, in vain

Curiosity stunted, interest wanes
What do I want?
Days pass, unconcerned



{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



{September 13, 2011}   To Recover

Soul blood
so deeply red
Soul torn
such deep rents

How to master
feelings loss
How to let go
betrayal powerful



{July 5, 2011}   Victim of the Blind Food

Trapped
Screaming
Fighting
Dying

This cage
I thought I left
This box
I hoped to outgrow



{June 15, 2011}   Blades, Blood, Bane

Why the want
For blades and blood
Over words and love

Surrender to
Die or fly
Try and try

Pain is a gain
Again and again
Pleasure to bane



{June 12, 2011}   Help Them

Screaming
Trapped
Helpless
Hopeless

Straight jacket
Late bracket
Crying
Dying



{May 9, 2011}   I Wish

I wish I could
look
feel
act

I wish I was
attenuated
light
robust



{April 10, 2011}   Explosion

To want
To hold
To hope
To cry

So fast
Unwanted
Now treasured
Unknown



{March 28, 2011}   Writer

A writer
I am
Am I?
Sooth?

See the world
Flowing words
Gently catch them
Take them, hold them

Letters woven
Spun with care
Beauty captured
Lovingly remembered

Picture worth
1000 words
But can your picture
Bleed thick emotion?
