She thinks there are nebulae
in the rough of my gutter bones,
some stargazing sanctuary
for lonely outcasts to lay their heads.

I am but a car crash,
spellbound
inside eyelids,
& red inked corrections
on crosshatched skin.

Made up of moans,
the clutching of bedsheets;
I am contemplating
ripping my ribs apart
& proving
I never had a heart at all.

But my moon shy love;
she is determined
to try & wake the dead.

After I read this ... I was talking to a friend of mine, and I started talking in a poetic way, I was talking in a style like this (your poem thing), and he said "what has gotten into you?" And I responded with "Can I speak in poetry from now on?" But still, this is an amazing poem, I love all your work, and can relate to allot of it. Thanks for making such wonderful work for the rest of us to enjoy :)

I find the first three stanzas explosively beautiful, and the last is the perfect landing.

The dead are meant to stay dead. They're gone for good and they don't belong to our world anymore.

Sometimes I feel like I'm a car crash, too. But then someone comes along and picks up the parts to make a new vehicle and the road goes on. This is a random comment, I'm sorry. :) Just thought I'd let you know I'm still here reading and enjoying your poems even though I don't have much to tell you in terms of constructive criticism or whatever. How is your scrapbook coming along, by the way? :)
