Peter Paul Rubens – Daniel in the lion’s den

when you see a loved one
slipping herself into madness
with the consent
from her loved ones–

when you see her losing it
and can’t hold her into place
or yourself in somewhere else
than sadness–

when the string is so thin
it vanishes in the air–
when the only light
comes from our hearts–

when life makes no sense
just love can hold
us tight–

and the only pray i say
goes like this:
you can loose your mind
but never your truth

i’ll be here holding you
if you go and if you stay
our hearts are together
wherever you may be–

Pablo Piasso – Woman Writing

runaway words
from here
to there–

they never
stay
where i put them–

(they are always
everywhere)

*

they go
from a poet’s feather
to a locked journal–

they go
from a rhyming heart
to an analytic hand–

they go
go
go away then–

*

here i play what’s real–
there
there’s no play.

Two Figures in a Landscape (2002), Cecily Brown

Cecily Brown – Two figurines in a landscape

lie on your back,
open your legs,
let me search…

do what i say,
let me start,
no time to waste:

from hip to hip, a bridge;
from mind to mind, a path.

drink my seed,
make me complete,

touch me
where no one has.

keep me awake,
make me sane,
once again.

lie on your back,
open your legs,
i’ll find your soul!

- – –
Written while listening to Coconut Skins by Damien Rice.
