HealingI will weep like a woundHealing by Mew-Mew-adict
and ground like a powerline -
nothing compares to me
I'll heal up like a zipper,
once inside myself
and I'll stay in the dark
until people worry,
until my eyes grow stale,
until I can hear people talking
PotentiallyDrape a black cloth over my heart -Potentially by Mew-Mew-adict
to trick me into thinking I can sleep again.
for a chest full of tricks.
I look at you the way house eaves
curl over to look at houses.
A back written in rain and moss,
turned against the sun.
With clumsy feet
I found you as children find puddles -
and I went fishing for mud and play.
I could give you all my words,
wrapped up in the fact that I'd never speak again.
And it would mean nought
in the face of hurt.
I'll give a gift to the world
my words will wind around paths
makes passages of wayward sea.
Air in still places,
still places made unstill
COUNTING FRIENDS.I'm counting friendsCOUNTING FRIENDS. by Mew-Mew-adict
the way I thumb pages and read ahead.
I prefer being able to hold my friends,
I'm old fashioned -
nothing quite like
the creaks of reading an old friend.
Old fashioned rites
are what my hands lack;
laying a friend flat,
satisfaction the colour of pages
- a distant brown.
a second look at
a freshly rearranged bookshelf,
sitting in windowsills,
afternoons to yourself.
There is an art
September Moulting.The days are coming away in clumpsSeptember Moulting. by Mew-Mew-adict
I am losing what I am,
My brain is poached,
standing on its tippy toes -
extending and crying,
sobbing in exhausted grunts,
filing away September.
September is a council,
and a church,
a registry of names and marriages,
a union of dates and queue of days.
the tantalising instructions
on how to become a colleague of your blood.
Hello - I’m Bryony.|
I'm a poet of sorts, but I also love to get crafty now and again. I'm a uni student studying religion and creative writing, currently recovering from acute anxiety.
Find my witchcraft etsy here -> www.etsy.com/shop/WardWitchery…
Mainly my poetry is about my mental health, my relationships, my pantheism, animism and witchery as well as other fun things like that.
