“Ascension Takes Time.  And Practice”


The Composition of Expectations
By Lisa Nielsen
Inspiration piece

I can’t take on gravity while
smiling rancid thoughts.     Floating thru your darkness,

I am a shape shifter that bends to your moods.
Hardly a courageous act, but how else do I hold you off?

A thud on the floor of your dreams,
summons me like a ward.

The world quakes with loneliness, even if loneliness
isn’t the thing,

here we are.

That ear to your chest isn’t me sinking,
I am deciphering morse code.

you see, the ghosts of tyrants live in my skin,
waiting for a man like you to pull them out
