Travel Like the Moon….


I travel across the open highways
never staying in one place
always and ever changing
I’m like the moon that fills the night with magic light and shadows
boldly dancing in corners
then dwindles
sharper and spare
my light eclipsed
Swell me with pleasant words and caresses
that lead to heat and wanting and a desire
to belong
to stay
full and round and blooming with light
But each phase, each morning
scrapes a layer from me
until the glow has cooled
familiarity breeding as it does
the dance is over, the curtains fall
and the only elixir is to join the wayfarers
back on the road
back on the open highway
seeking to be filled again…


About chimerapoet

I write. I write a lot. A. LOT. There are times I am half blind with a sentence ricocheting off the walls of my stupid, cant be shut off to save my life, brain. I am miserable until I get it down on paper. Punch it up a bit. Usually cross out half of it. And then breathe. Relax. Only to do it all again..... But I just thought that was me. How I am. Not a writer....noooo...not me. Writers are.....writing people. People Who Write. REALLY write. Write things that matter. All grown up very important things. I am just a scribbler of sorts. And I was/am content with that....if it's true, well then....a scribbler am I. Until the thought wormed its way in to my brain (the furtive sneaky bitch) that maybe...just maybe...that is writing. My style. My strange way. But....still writing. So here I am at the dance. Not sure I know any of the moves and the music is entirely mine. But.....only one way to find out. Would you care to join me?
