maia's muses

because i am writing exams and don't have much to say and because i am really trying to entice my muse to return to me, i am going to start posting some of my poetry for a bit. skip along if you like.
you've been warned. :p



i met a man at the altar
in an old desecrated church
kneeling before him
         i offered my confession
               and he offered me
                    freedom from my sins

the choir sang requiem
and the prayer books
               fell to the floor

oh, our love was holy
  our lust deep and blessed
      our bodies were temples

and he nailed my
heart to the cross
as i begged for my penance

i was the virgin Mary
and Mary Magdalene
         in our church of stone
      and dirt 

he was the god i worshipped
the object of my devotion
          Satan, the fallen angel
           enfolding me in his black wings

we lit the candles
gave communion
             this is my body
                  this is my blood

we fucked in the pews
and screamed in the confessionals
                  he had no mercy
                                              i had no shame

I somehow managed to live with you for a few months and not know that you wrote poetry.

This is wonderful! I can't wait to read more. It makes me want to actually start writing again.

I saw Thein the other day when going visit Christopher for a little while! He is alright, not ignored. I won't let him get feral. I love him. I want to steal him.

I am hoping to go to UNO in the Fall. I need to get some money from someone in my family to pay them some stuff I owe. Roughly 1 thousand dollars.

Already tried it.

Now I am trying to get a hold of trust fund money.

Hit me up on aim sometime for conversations. I feel bad cluttering up your comments.

wandering does not make you a "gypsy."
why would you call yourself
after those who have no home?
long skirts and hoop earrings
do not make you a "gypsy."
why do you call yourself after
those who have no clothes?

"gypsy" is pejorative. please don't perpetuate the stereotype. educate yourself on what it really means to be a "gypsy" in this world.
