Breath Me

Standard

I am the air
As it glides over your skin
And hair
Breath me in, my love
And I’ll anoint you
With the sweet fragrance
Of myrrh and rose

I am the song
A melody of colors
And light
Dance to me, my love
And I’ll enfold you
In the crook of arm and breast
As we drift softly Into sleep

I am the moon
Goddess of the violent tide
and a wolf’s wild heart
Howl for me, my love
And with silvered hands
I’ll lift you
Into the warmth of my skies.

She’s Made of Storms

Standard

“It’s said
She’s made of storm cells
And a wild wolf’s hungry heart,
That she’s learnt
The lightning’s secret
To ripping darkened skies apart.

The power of her presence
Can bring the mountains to their knees,
Her song is one of chaos
As she stirs the angry seas.

But if you’ve met
You’d be no wiser
For she is also born of light,
Another face amongst the crowd;
The hidden
Hiding in plain sight

Great power doesn’t always come
Inside the forms that you’d assume
But you’d never doubt her strength
When she is howling at the moon.”

If you could feel what I feel
You’d know how much brighter the sun burns for me
A fiery kiss
As sweat drips
Glistening on honey skin
Emerald eyes ablaze

If you could see what I see
You’d see the universe come to life by night
Oh how he awakens for me
Sending stars to ring my head
Their light like silk
Sliding down shoulders and breasts
Lingering on hips and legs

If you could hear what I hear
You’d hear the ground breath
Singing a song
As I sleep in the secret grove
Surrounded by trees that hum along
On my side I’m curled
Cheek to earth
She whispers to me of life
And longing

If you could smell what I smell
You’d smell the sky before the storm
Waves of ozone and electricity
Crackling between raised fingertips
Hair floating with static
A red halo
And the scent of the wolf beneath my skin
Wild and fierce
Awaiting the lightning that will come.

One of Their Kind

Standard

“If you ever
Want your soul
To dance in the clouds,
You will at some point
Have to juggle lightning
And taste
The thunder.”

One happy night
I walked down the side street
Of an old southern town
Lined with frosted trees
And a rain began to pelt
I laughed as they ran for shelter
“Come on Leah, get out of the rain!” They called.
Instead I smiled and lifted my face to the sky
I relented to the violent night
And relished the cool dripping of my wet hair
Down the nape of my neck
As it traced a line along my shoulder blades
I lifted chilled fingers to follow the caress
Then the wind and rain said to me
“you’re mine,”
and I agreed
Yes, I am one of their kind.

No Bird

Standard

“I am no bird and no net ensnares me.”

I’ll fly to you my dear
And eat from your open hand

Perched there, I preen and croon
A song for you alone

Oh how you love the surrender of wild things
Shaping them to your will

I must warn you my love
Do not mistake my acquiescence

I’ll never sit tame in a cage for you
Not always respond to your entreat

For the world is my domain
And The sky my home.

-LM Jones
(Quote: Jane Eyre)

Today, I am not…

Standard

I am not the calm of a spring day
I am the scorching summer thunder
I am not the bird song of may
I am the lightning skies asunder

Don’t ask that I always be your smiling girl
It will only cause you pain
Don’t dress me in muslin and pin curl
I’ll just ruin them in the rain

Allow me to spin in the hurricane of my mind
Don’t hinder the wild flame
Yes, I am still your little one, good and kind
yet, I am also the wild thing, never to be tamed.
