New Poem from David L O’Nan “September is my Blind Girl”

(c) David L O’Nan

September is my Blind Girl

Unto thee I lift up mine eyes, O thou that dwellest in the heavens.   Psalm 123

I haven't been following your eyes that I see in your faded footprints.
During a clever Summer, endless heat
Your skin stuck to the melting of everything around.
And I’d watch you leave, and watch you go.
From contempt to a new journey in the cold.

From July to September it was months that bathed me in a forever drowning.
They bounced by too fast because I was trying to breathe in your every breath,
 and drink in your every thought.  
Putting beauty to the mistress when the maidens were all dying with the lambs.

Love was a walk around the town, 
Love was stuck in spoken tongues, I couldn’t understand.
Searching for your scent in the dirt of this aging frail town.

I watch from my jail, the town is up in flames from my bending windows
and my loud neighbors are too silent, or I am too tame in my lonely hands?
Just laying in sheets, wounded from heart to heart, the world’s heart doesn’t beat anymore.
Turning and turning, or did the world become still and pause with the pills?

I want to grow with the trees, bathe in the rain, I want the muscles emotionally and physicall
 to secure this warmth and comfort if I were to ever feel the need to succumb to the gusts.
To dream as the birds do. To kiss as the wires do that hang overhead. 
To be peaceful as the lightening
that frightens our eyes when the thunder threatens us into endless shakes.

Watch God 1-2-3 lift up my eyes. I’ve the need to escape the heartaches and the straps.
