I’m looking for silver skies
so i can hang my golden stars
from it’s ceilings.
I want to dance with you
on cloudy balconies.
Just to show you what i meant
When i said
you mean the world to me.

..She said i see your minds illuminated
Show me what makes your soul conscious
Show me where your heart is
Tell me what made you decide to make earth your home
…I pointed at her.

We have to stop
This falling in love with dancing
Dancing with early morning stars
Unhealthy habits
Habits that make our mothers nervous

Late hours understand lonely hearts I know
They also understand lost souls
Souls clothed in new forms of insanity
What shall the psychiatrist say
When we tell him the sun knows our faces
What pill shall he prescribe
When he learns we dance to moon and star music?

But do you know how handsome 4pm looks?
We spend noons dreaming
Dreaming only of each others voices
We spend evenings plotting
We lust only after clocks with extra hands
We dress our desires
Disguise them as nothing
Only to hungrily undress each others minds

We make a vow
We’ll only stop if we find why shooting stars think our beating hearts make a perfect metronome

Our daughters are prepared
to run where your sons
are taught to never go.

and that’s how the lonely folk
catch you – they know how to come
dressed up as all of the things you need.

These came in the mail today (finally) and I am a ridiculously happy woman. “Salt” by nayyirahwaheed and “Zimbabwe” by tapiwamugabe

My day was made even better, when I found a handwritten note from tapiwamugabe himself in his book “Zimbabwe”.

These will make my travels that much more ethereal!
