Songs for Ruby.

Songs for Ruby.

A Poem by Joshua Lean

Home.
It is where all essence breathes,
It is where my veins throb hard against
My skin.
It is where my lungs learn new things.
I have brought what all of me is,
Folded and creased in my wet humanity,
I am never more myself than when I
Lay atop the empty page.
So, these markings are for you.
I hope you take them.
If they burn or rust.
It is all the love that I feel,
And all the passion my raspy bones gather.
Alas beloved, you are that rosebudded star that stains my sky.
You are Home.

Upon the marble throats of dead poets, i bleed.
for your eyes only.

That's lovely, likewise :)
sometimes the only time we show the real "us"---is when we write...and sometimes we can't say the words well enough...but in poetry we can show our love...that is strength in written words.

nice piece.

Ah. Thank you for your words. Much appreciated.
Beautiful image in the first stanza, of you laying your soul bare upon paper...this is an exquisite piece.
