Soul Silhouette

She is the kind of girl
who smothers herself
in Astronomy

New Age philosophies
and coffee shop poetry

All fire and desire
beneath midnight

Giving kisses
with salty siren lips

in every vein
and particle

She hides her sorrow
behind pages and ink stains
living her life by way of verse

Throwing Hemingway around like insults
and falling in love with every word Keats spoke

Blue cosmic veins connecting planets
a web of interstellar love

Writing her letters to the moon
she hides her heart underneath Helios

So she dug deep trying to find
if she spills scriptures
for passion or purpose

As legs quiver
and she becomes
tender to the touch

You see she transfers
her souls solar heat
into the ring of fire
Annular Eclipse

You see she writes for both
Passion and Purpose
