Annie Jane Poems
The Tale Of Mr Sagittarius And Lady Libr...
Mr Sagittarius, Man of Fire, among the trees, Sat down and fashioned arrows out of wood and flint with ease. Then passing, Lady Libra, who despite her grace and airs, Was captured by the flame in him, so hid, and watched him there.
A Frozen Flower Thaws
Delicate flower, you have been growing alone for too long. The soil round your feet was frozen by winter, Your petals were brittle, their colour near gone.
Best When Broken
Back arching like a tree branch, Take me and break me As if snapping twigs with your hands.
Brittle By Name
Brittle by name, But nature changed her. Nurture turned her, Conversely, to stone.
Finding Something Burning
Someone lit a fire, Knowing someone like me would Find it, feel it… why?
Salt And Gold
Oh lover, lover, loved completely, Come to me, come calm, come rest. You're wearied by a world lead-weighted, I'm here to hold you, love you best.
I cry for you with poppy tears, My lover somniferum, sleep-bringing wonder, Dreamer. For the sweet, delirious Heaven
Vibrant Blood And Quiet Bones
The fast ache of absence sets in, Gets into each space in my thoughts. Half a dream, and it’s yesterday, And lilies blossom as apples fall.
Half To Share
Books half opened Lines half written A bridge half built is halfway there.
Dew Decorate Me
I have the want but not the means To cry, and so I let the trees
Of These Things I Am Sure
I do not love you by comparison. It isn't borne of desperation, pride, or pain. I do not need you for counsel, release. I do not dream of you to alter you or your words.
Today I'm told to love you, Told to tell the world I love you... As if I could forget that truth For the remainder of the year.
A love like this I've never known, And now I know so well, I'm proud in love, and prouder yet Of all, one day, we'll tell.
Just Can'T Rest
Once, sleep came so easily.
You opened my eyes, and now they refuse to shut,
Because they search for yours.
I know I leave you restless,
And I am sorry. Let those silent, stolen hours
Be mine, so I can have some part of you.
I will indulge my insomnia,
