Love Quote – “This Perfection of You” – 12/31/2020

“No, dear. Betterment to yourself is never necessary. Betterment to myself, always is. As long as you remain perfect for my eyes, you need not change, as only through my love will you rise.

Poem – “Forever, Woman” – Romanticism – 12/30/2020

Favor yourself,The deepest sleepHas settled yourselfUpon sheets,As beauty tempts you backTo see the winds across your cheeksLet free from my mouth,Still of taste to your tears. You drown, here,In oceans wide, and fragrantWith the scents of your grace,As IAm stalled hereIn the breath of your taking face,By captivation to seal all wounds,As love never again […]

Poem – “Ingrown, in Love” – Romanticism – 12/30/2020

Let us twist,In arms, together and apart,Like hearts that cannot weepWithout remembranceTo moments where circlesBecome the spheres to whichWe find the otherHalf-way upon the ocean. As vinesWith decay to each fallen apple,With remnants in the shattered earth,Of hearts to the broken streamsLeaked free from eyes,Kissing all the farewells to entrancesOf love with roses in arms.

Poem – “Each Page of our Love” – Romanticism – 12/30/2020

Can you countRoadblocks in the sand?The sea has weathered itself,By each triumph we have beckonedWith hands held outTo catch fallen droplets,With the noose about our necksLocking temptation in place. For we may speakWithout uttering words.Of our eyes,To our emitted stare,We fold the other in armsWide as the ocean returns words,As the sky notices how we […]

Poem – “Hold your Heart Out” – Romanticism – 12/30/2020

Hold what leaves,The precious denialYou’ve been keeping,Like roses attached to thorns,With your kindness, too longIn the many places it standsTo keep the earth,Sodden fresh. With little care to desert yourself,You come wholeTo the arrows that lick your neck,To the faces that guide your trekDown the dirt-roads that never moistenedPast where each loyalty departs,As the roses […]

Poem – “Bare, with Yearning” – Romanticism – 12/29/2020

Your face remains idle,As not a tear moreCrosses your ruined eyes,For your placeBy my sideHas been the collapsing waveFor what we could not save. Place your lips, runningAcross the smears to eachOf those tapered fingers.You have feltEnough to die from,In the blackness that recedesTo a heart that bleeds. Cruelty finds moreOf you, over any song […]

Philosophy – “Of Art, Realism versus the Artistic” – 12/29/2020

“Some might repeat that art should remain as is, and they’d be right, if no artist was ever deceived by the idea that ‘realism’ should take more prominence on the canvas, over their surroundings.” – Modern Romanticism Hyper-realism, in art, possesses no “art” of itself, due to that such paintings of such realism attempt to […]

Poem – “We are Forever” – Romanticism – 12/29/2020

To count the stars,We are forever,In arms wide as the seaCan scrawl a deep shapeOf us two,As we burn through our ownImage. We raisePorcelain atop ebony,Discovering light in the eclipse,Finding words where can be noneIn the surrender of a void,To the entrance of eternity. My love,How the world has clungTo the deep-blue watersAnd ever-grey skies,Holding […]
