— Your lungs– 

Your lungs 

paper-mache worlds caged by lonesome bone.

Your lungs

 lined with the smoke of your impermanence.

Your lungs,

faded pink, breathe in the words of great minds

that taught your heart how to live.
I think:

This world can only hold so much pain,

That humanity cannot refrain

from evil,

from billowing clouds of thought pollution

and

the  allure of dancing on life’s deflated lungs.
Your lung’s edges

 melanized like my contaminated  heart.

Your lungs

like clay that has yet to be molded by the hands of time.

Your lungs 

vast oceans of air 

that are oceans from mine,

tiny capsules of loss.
 It is said,  “Death is the mirror in which the entire meaning of life is reflected.”

And when I look into it’s crystaline surface,

all I see is the vacancy of breath upon breath

and your lungs

writhing beneath a cloud of stubborness.

 
Your  pretty lungs, 

haunt me sometimes.

-Eva M.M.

Note that the quote on death being a mirror is from,  “The Tibetian book of living and dying “.

the looking glass ( 3.28.17)

Still as the moment,

I stand on the shore

watching the stillness,

water pulled into glass

and I look back at myself.

We only see what we want

to see

is to deceive,

to believe

that we are infinite finite beings.

I slowly trace circles against my wrists.

I muse    internally    and eternally

that nobody else seems to notice

the slow draining of life from our world,

that freedom is a bursting of arteries

and that we all question the power of compassion.

 

I am motionless

watching,

waiting for something to s h a t t e r the illusion

that I exist separate from existence.

 

I hear

the crinkling of crisp autumn leaves embracing the earth,

footsteps approaching.

I am not

                                                                                              alone.

All is tainted with the faint music of holding on to Now as it passes.

The gentle whisper of the trees, mother and child, soothing,

a conversation muffled by the sweet melody of weary birds.

 

The breeze raises tiny mountains on my arms,

the slight smile of sunlight upon frailty

and all labeled , existence.

 

I taste

the salt, the mineral flavor of red.

 

Foot follows foot.

I wave into the glass.

It taps against my ankles

cutting a lattice work of penetrating cold.

I watch the stillness shatter,

shards of light  breaking down light.

I no longer see myself in the disturbed surface.

I wade further in.

The water, saturating my clothes,

suctions me to the moment

and I know

we are all afraid

to go deeper

I desire,

dive beneath the blurred blackness.

I open myself to all it has to offer.

My eyes milky with the film of microscopic life.

My lungs burn.

I fall

and then

I exist

 

still.

Graduation

First and foremost I wanted to say thank you to everybody who helped bring me here. Honestly, when I started at Trinity school I never thought I would make it all the way. I wasn’t intimidated by what lay before me or  lacking in any confidence; I simply could not see that the uphill climb before me would feel as effortless as walking across a stage with a diploma in hand until I stood beaming on the side of the stage. I can name on the fingers of just one hand the number of times in my life I have felt this free and joyful. I already know there will not be any moment as abundant in happiness as this for the next four years at least. I graduated! I made it through some of the hardest and yet most important years of my life.To all who have aided me though this journey, taught me life lessons I will carry with me beyond, and most graciously to everybody who had faith in me , helped me pull through, and held me up when I could not hold myself up. I can’t wait for the adventures that lay ahead, the uncharted lands and things yet to be learned. I cherish the bittersweet memories and look forward to sharing and creating new ones with you as I move on. 

This chapter is done.

My pen awaits.

With a warm and glowing heart. Thank you and hats off to the future.

Adulthood and sickness.

First of all, I wanted to apologize for my long and unannounced hiatus from you the pen. No I am not suffering from the world’s greatest case of writers block, in fact, I feel like I have more things than ever to share with you. The reason I have been so distant is because I have been very busy with preparing for my graduation party and finishing up the last things that needed to be done at school but also because I just could not muster up the strength to open my computer and let flow everything that was whirling around in my mind. Today, coming back from school after a practice graduation run through and picking up my cleaned laptop, I decided I should share with you some of the thoughts whirling around in my head.

The other day I was lucky enough to be chosen by some mysterious illness that sprang up on me in the middle of the night and nestled itself into my system. The next day I thought I felt a little strange but crediting it to the overly spicy food I had ate the previous night I decided to go babysit. Turns out my immune system was on vacation and I was sicker than I thought. After putting on a movie for the children and numerous awkward shifting on the sofa sessions, I hurried home as soon as possible that evening. It is odd how when you are sick timing often happens in both the best and worse ways possible all at once. I was spared vomiting in-front of the two exuberant children but the minute I got home I knew this wasn’t just going to be a lot of uncomfortable stomach cramps. I will spare you the visual but what occurred for the next seven hours was a lot of noises, shifting around on the cold bathroom floor ,dehydration, and the motivation for this entire post, calling for my mother.

After I had calmed myself from the initial attack I realized I had lost a lot of water and needed to get something to drink. I stood up. Nope. Guess not. It was like that moment when you drive through a tunnel where everything goes dark and you are wondering why they don’t install better lighting in the tunnel because you are pretty sure there is some wacko invisible driver about to ram into your car. My vision blurred and darkened and everything went fuzzy. I figured attempting to make it downstairs to get a glass of water might not be the best option but my sister was working on the yard outside and didn’t have her phone on her and I doubted my cat would be helpful. I did what any sick person usually thinks to do; I called my mommy, crying, asking her when she would be home to take care of me.

Keep in mind, I’m at that stage in my life when everybody around me is covered in tears thinking about how much they are going to miss their families. Don’t get me wrong I love my family and I will miss them in my own Eva way but I have never been the type to get sad about something so freeing and joyful. I am more than ready to go out on my own and be broke and make terrible decisions like I do now and have to take full responsibility for them and then have to call my mom to ask her silly things like how to write a check or which brands of meat to avoid buying at all costs. Yet, people who know me also know that I am probably one of the most nostalgic people out there. So while I was wondering if my stomach would stay where it was supposed to or end up on our bathroom floor I realized, nobody ever seems to take care of you like your mother when you are sick.

I was thinking about all of the vomit my mother had to wipe off the floor, our faces, and out of our hair hair. I don’t even want to think about the other things involved with being sick. I cringe when  a kid hands me a slobbery toy, I can’t even imagine all the things my mom had to handle because of me. Sorry mom. I remember how she used to have us lie down in the bathroom near the tub and would bring us these tiny glasses of Gatorade every hour.

My mom finally got home and she made me some chai tea to soothe my stomach and brought me some more water to drink and I was thinking to myself this whole time: How do grown ups be sick.  How do people throw up without their mothers there to smooth down their hair and bring them something to settle their stomachs.  I am completely on  board the adulthood train and more than ready to go. I’m overjoyed! I just hope I don’t get sick because nobody takes care of you when you are sick like your mother.

I let you (3.20.17 ) ( with audio)!

 I let you

I fear you,

repetition of repetition,

dazed and glazed.

you,

darkness upon darkness,

destroyed me with your lust

for love

is an acidic cloud of doubt.

I fell into you,

thorned briars upon briars,

tumbleweed

that whispered in the desert dim.

I embrace rank romance,

forbidden love, festering

words rotting upon the decay of flesh

upon flesh

knows not the radiance of forever.

I let you destroy

everything I stood for

I needed to feel adored,

wanted;

There is no value in vulgar validation.

I wanted the moonlight

and the warmth of the sun

but drunk on the moon shine

and scorched by the sun rays,

I fell through time,

a slow unwinding

of sinew and bone.

I let you in

but you were never there

so I let myself out

and I, still waiting,

waiting to go home.

Reflections on poetry and a friend from a foreign land on a rainy day.

Some things I can not know

like the scent of rain upon feather

or the sound of heartbeat enthroned;

you,

or shall I say,

I

am

merely atoms and mutiny,

traitor to all–

myself

in dingy corners

and

dissonant words,

all pungent,

saturated with the lacy odour of decay,

the fragrance of death and earth,

mushrooms and smouldering roses.

Stillness.

Thought paid to assassinate thought,

anilihate idea,

eliminate invention.

This,

I am,

or should I say,

you are

the echo of glorfied heartbeat

comme le parfum des plumes qui glissent sur la pluie,

                                                                  know somethings,

not I…

Not I.

-Eva M.M

Thank you for reading and staying with me though I have been very distant lately. I have been both very busy and suffering from a severe depletion of energy even open my laptop even when I do have the time. So thank you for still reading and waiting patiently.

Fallow

Creased hands

and beads of sweat

brave upon the cliff of your brow,

haunt me.

I feel the memory of being shattered,

set free against a hazy sunset.

I am bound even now

by the razor bladed trailing of your lips

And

scorched in the radiation of your sorcery

sensation beyond words, born in me,

spread

like a cancer,

its tendrils sweeping across my canvas,

nerves wrapped around nerves,

we were breath upon breath.

Now,

Ahamed,

Confused,

No longer the flushed minx,

The nephimp who dreamt a thousand worlds

But

Bare,

nude against the desert of lonesome bone,

severed sinew from weary lungs ;

I cower,

cradle tremble in tremble,

stare some nights on moonlit vacancy,

the mirrored reflection of my abandoned land,

undulating flesh that once,

streaked with the grip of youth,

now lies fallow,

Void of knowing.


Now,

Silent,

Still,

no longer the symphony of movement,

the voice that spoke out in a moment of submission

But

Meek,

timid against the tundra of crisp melancholy,

blurred noises upon subtle vibrations;

I close,

fingertips that shelter faded roses.

I fall some nights in revelatory ravines

in which I see only fragments of mirages,

veiled realities with the odour of smoke and deception,

smudged with the trailing of innocent betrayal.

I lie fallow.

Void of knowing.

– Eva M.M.

the carnivore

Two years ago

I embraced its fangs,

the shred and torment of its teeth,

the passionate pollution of it.

The carnivore ekes out it’s living

from the silver tears of youthful hearts

but it bows to one greater,

palmed paradise,

palmed,

the cunning of laced skepticism,

blind rage,

and carnivorous letters read eagerly in dim light.

For I have a spliced heart,

divided infinitely

and through its trenches trails barbed wire,

the thorns of disregarded wisdom. 

It lurks in tangled shadows,

shifting shapes with eternal joy.

Still, we all buy a ticket

to drench ourselves in the honeyed sensulality of the carnivore.

-Eva M.M.

oblivious ( i gave you…)

” I think I just might hate you for peeling away everything I thought I knew –but — but how would I know, after all, I live in deceit.”

He stands, stretching his legs. Oblivious.Goes on another day. Oblivious.There is always work to be done and dreams to be caught.

There is always the sweet kiss of oblivion

against your ruined skin.

I think I just might  love you

for stripping away everything I thought was there to protect me from going after the power of flesh.

And was this just another game for me

and another life lesson for you.

I am always wishing you all the best

and letting you hold your hand to my throat

while I cry and try to help you all the more.

Maybe I am better off admitting that I was never here to heal you

for how can I heal you when all I do is hurt?

Why am I always chasing after people who only spit in my face and tatter my skirt?

I gave you my words.

I gave you my mind.

I gave you my heart.

and after all of that

you left

oblivious

that I had also given you

the only thing I cannot regret giving you.
