There is silence in the house.
The word for this is:   unfettered
                         or:   cold-bodied

Tiny poems are kind of nice, in their tininess.

Body itself knows conflict;
it loves the warp of weight. So feel it
rise with a thousand breaths internal
and trust its spindling and settling

because it is never absent. Treeish,
it is song, older than me. Every fold of skin
a hymn to skirmish. My aching shoulder
a lover's operatic quarrel.

There is a beauty in this;
this Body is herculean,
hard-won. In the early morning,
witness its waking: a slow surfacing,
an inhalation overdue: a diver gone
too long. Notice its reluctance, its longing
for stillness, but it cannot be still.
It spreads and flows and falls apart.

Now, alone, I feel the pulse of this Body;
I feel its longing, and sadness, and
there is a beauty in this,
in the adapting, in the pain of it.
I notice its slow-stirring,
its sleeplessness, and remember
a season gone by.

I overheard:
                                    it is want, 
                                    but pare it away
                                    and it is just friction

and as if to act, 
I pared it away. 
It was, of course, more than friction;

it is gravity,
and momentum,
and dust in the curtains
and the eyelashes

because I am no husband -
I do not dust.

Trim back, back
to childhood. Memories of friction
are skinned elbows,
are bark in the spaces behind ears,
are not cold or hungry at night.

Given all night, 
I immerse myself in this reduction
and leave myself.
I cannot fly,
but I can give myself this. 

So cut it away;
leave the bones
and I will build tables,
beds, walls, desks,
bridges, barns.
I can give myself this, 
with bones.

The gravity that kept us burrowed beside you
has broken, and we are popped and dizzied 
and floating in circles. - Heather Altfeld

I haven't been writing lately because I've had some personal stuff going on. I was engaged, but that relationship ended a few weeks ago after a long time of being difficult to handle. After the relationship ended, I moved to a new city, and I'm moving from place to place until the 15th, when I have a place to stay that is truly mine. 

Because of all of the upheaval -- emotional and literal -- I just haven't written anything. I'm sure that I will, soon; a place of pain is a place from which many people draw inspiration. For now, though, I'm going to lay down with my cat, watch Netflix and eat a bunch of pizza.

I'm a college student that likes to write poems. Occasionally, I'll write a short story or two. Beyond that, I mostly sit around in my house and read.

Congratulations on a well-deserved Daily Deviation! :squee:
I was, perhaps, a wee bit devastated to end my favorite-ing spree so soon. ;_; I hope we'll see more from you; you're quite excellent! :la:

Aw. I appreciate the kind words! It was certainly exciting to see the whole Daily Deviation thing, haha. 

And thanks, by the way. I'll try to submit more poetry -- and I hope that you like my future poems, too! :)
