Winter Moon

by

Jennifer Chapman

Delicious beauty burns about
Kissing the shadows frantically
Void only time when bare winds blew
Smooth winter stars
Irons out the cool rusted lies spoken
I am behind my sadness
Heave about my madness
A soul that dont exist
Whisper sad nothings underneath the moon


Starving Experiments

by

Jennifer Chapman

Absurd angry harmony
My empty pictures appear like drunken music
Full of surreal balance
Imagine every artist performing passion through procreation
An old nude canvas asking to paint a masterpiece
Living silhouettes turning into a symbol of experiment
A smear of sculptures sold by the starving
Hidden by the lies


Silent Invasion

by

Jennifer Chapman

Your light whispers surround my heart
Words like music laughter so kind
I hold you my beautiful woman
You enrapture me
My soul smiles because of you
You refresh me like wild flowers after a rain
Holding me so tender just the same
I swim in your hair like the great sea of love
Life is fragile and so blinding
You were taken from me in a matter of time
Life became invaded like death by war
A shadow that crept and took you so far away
Burning black into my being
My senses don't even seem quite the same
Sometimes I can smell your sweetness in the air
Trying to convince myself that prehaps you are there
I ask myself why didn't she take me away with her?
Terrorized by the blackness that surrounds me
I do not sleep at night
A terrible monster was thrown inside of me so violently
It is invading my heart so silenty


Talking stars

by

Jennifer Chapman

Did you hear the stars whisper that I love you? I talked to the moon and he insisted I was insane
Although there are moments when I truly wonder am I?
Here I am looking up at the sky for my answers
Attempting to run but I always return
Running back to you looking up at the moon
Tell me you love me everyday at noon
Lets not repeat a thing but love so much it makes us shy
I want to discover you all over again
Iíll dive inside of you and swim like youíre the sea
Lets go into a cave and feel one another in the dark
Unfamiliar fingers exploring my untame heart
Escape into our world let our passions be free
Together just you and me

Home

There is an empty void in my heart where you use to be There is an empty void that only you can see
It is missing you my coffee partner in the morning
You telling me everyday how beautiful it is outside
Silent moments that we didnít speak but took comfort in knowing each other were there
I wanted you to know that heaven is beautiful
Its like Christmas every single day
Everyone is happy and I seen all the folks I use to know
Please know I love you and I am still with you everyday
I sit in my chair I am never far away
Sometimes you will hear my voice its real I am there
Thatís still my home too where we belong
My heart will always be with you
In the morning I am looking out at the sun its so radiant
I can walk and my legs are strong
I spend a lot of time with mom and dad
They look young again and I even seen your mom
So please take comfort in knowing I am where I belong
Way up in heaven looking over you but my spirit is in our home

Undone

by

Jennifer Chapman


Love is not easy it is like a complicated textbook full or rules and messages I cannot get
I donít know what the reason for is but I donít like to read it
So many times, I have tried to understand but always end up with unanswered questions
Why do you treat me so harsh why do you leave me in the dark?
I try to explore your heart and you leave mine in two
We have made passionate love I have touched you so much I know the outline of your beautiful strong face by heart
The shape of your lips and the way they intertwine in mine
As soon as we do this you run
Hiding in the dark with your heart in the palm of your hand
Secrets that lie with you and sometimes itís your excuse
Say you love me and everything will be ok
I am here with my soul bare and my breasts exposed
Where do I go when you have no soul?
Romance makes me feeble and I will melt into you
Therefore, like a book I do not know all the rules
I try to figure it out every single day
What is love and why does it make me feel this way?
Is it when you roar at me with anger?
Or when you touch me softly
Is it harsh words or moments when we agree with one another?
I do not know the definition of love
It is when I cry myself to sleep
Or when I am swollen and my eye is black from you
Maybe that its
Remember when you would wake me in the middle of the night to look at the stars
You would wrap your arms around me and hold me tight
At that moment I thought everything was right
You would braid daises together for me to wear in my hair
I would playfully dance around outside that moment felt right
I feel broken I feel like I am half alive
I would read to you late at night my poetry or Poe
Candles would dance next to the bed and I would lay with you
You would read my palm or tarot cards it would tell us of an unsettling future
Yet I did not believe because I have even reached the first page in the book of love
If only I had known I would have never read that book
There would be no rules and love would be easy
You would undress me before you even met me
No surprises no rough hands just take me as I am
Love me for being childish get lost in my eyes
Hold me like no tomorrow
Just do not break me I do not like to feel half-alive
Kiss me and love me once again before things got broken
Before my souls come undone

Dust in my heart

by

Jennifer Chapman

I knew him and he existed so quietly
I canít see him yet I can almost feel him
He is around me everyday above me
Looking over me watching my children so silently yet so carefully
Making sure they are protected and remain innocent for as long as possible
I can his voice in the raindrops and see his shadows in the darkness
Once in awhile I can smell him and I remember being a child
The times when I was so young and so unworried
When I had little problems that seemed so big at the time
Yet you always comforted me and made me realize one day I would forget
The little things that didnít matter anymore
Then I grew up and you were there in every corner of my heart
Sometimes we didnít accord with each other yet that was okay
You taught me to be myself and even how to fight
There were times I disappointed you and things I know you didnít like
But we couldnít separate because we were father and daughter
So all the memories I have are like dust inside my heart and we are together
Yet so far apart the sun donít shine quit as bright as it use to because when you
Left you took a big piece of me with you
