Prose – “A Death written in Black Blood” – Romance – 5/19/2020

I begged her song to be written for me, in what colors she could pour out, from a throat made of silver. Though, I simply waited while her sigh, the last one, drew out the silver breath from her lungs, against the fiery coldness of winter. Of what I saw, of that silver breath, against […]

Poem – “The Grieving Heartbeat” – Romanticism – 5/18/2020

Close your fatal wings around me, Once more. Close your bladed arms around me, Once more, For I know you will do so To demand forgiveness. My face is kissed With lips soaked in venom. My childlike face is the maturity of a turnip, Still a seed. Her eyes see the next pain to deal […]

A Note from a Writer – “Feeling Emotionally Numb” – 5/12/2020

There was once a time when the poetry I wrote possessed much feeling. Now when I write them, the feelings only bleed out, rather than erupt like a geyser. I rarely feel the “chills” I usually get when listening to my favorite songs, nor do I cry like I used to. I enjoyed weeping when […]

Poem – “My Eyes Steam in the Long Spring Night” – Romance – 4/10/2020

From my mouth, bellows howlsTo the moon, from the wretchedness I have become. From my eyes, there come steamAfter many long night in woeful screams.

Poem – “I am not a Mountain” – Romance – 4/9/2020

Do not cross the manWith suffering where he stands,For he is bound to break youAnd leave with tears you do not seeRoaring down his pallid cheeks. Do not accuse the manWhose smile is never shown,When all you see is the frownWhen he is always downAs the most visible self. His pain has eclipsed his mind,To […]

Poem – “Where Shall I Dump my Pain?” – Romance – 4/8/2020

Where shall I dump my painIf it is from a cloud? Where shall I dump the current loadIf it only sails upstream? The clouds war with the groundAnd bless the daylight with their grief.Just as God would like to have made Man a perfect imageOf His reflection.Life is too crude,Too undoneOf knots meant to hold […]

Poem – “Feel what Pain I Bleed” – Romance – 4/8/2020

Send intoMe, when you’ll come to bleedThe song of a mocking siren.Kisses are the texture of velvet upon your mouth,While dreams lay wasted in fields that do not want to runAmok with the seedsFor new beginnings. Life has been a cruel displayOf utter dismay. My desires flee from my parted lips,Like sighs from one burthened […]

Poem – “Love Grows in the Foulest Places” – Romance – 3/19/2020

I once saw the maiden’s breathClimbing upon the clammy skin of death.I once saw how her eyes hovered and gazedOver everything that to anyone elseWould merely amaze. Her face and idle grace,Her love for things so blessed by fate.Her place in its safe web.Though, through her simple designWeaved by fingertips marred by grime,She had sneaked […]

Poem – “A Drunken Identity” – Romantic Poetry – 2/5/2020

Passed upon myself,Was her shadow.Like to pass over my disused and torn spirit,After a love shattered,Like the bottle I cling to. I attempted to ignore,Though, it kept calling,As it kept me company. Beside myself, flesh over a drunken spirit.Inside myself, with ignorance overdone,I only slept with myself, last night,Like some pauper in the wilderness of […]
