Poem – “Heaven had its Chance” – Modern Romanticism – 1/13/2022

Sharp slopeTo lose your tearsWhether to the infinite ocean,Or to the finite reflection. Raise this grave,Watered at the weeping moon. Taste the future, savedTo eclipsed presence, too soon. Separations into black.Wandering off-trackWhile kisses, once the lightNow the fright. Heaven had sparks.Love ends in the dark,While the pursuit of passionBecome a collisionFlinging pain as water for… Continue reading Poem – “Heaven had its Chance” – Modern Romanticism – 1/13/2022

Poem – “Far Beyond the Pedestal” – Modern Romanticism – 1/13/2022

Her name In safest regard. Bewildered to me, that these tears Drop to make the stones, Sunken with all the bones Ashen in color, Washed out of salience. Modest maker Of all love, while she burns the pages At the furthest lighthouse. The rush to the lanes, An hour of hardship To land, for an… Continue reading Poem – “Far Beyond the Pedestal” – Modern Romanticism – 1/13/2022

Poem – “Connecting Kiss” – Modern Romanticism – 1/13/2022

Steal you From time's wasted banquet. Undermine you To the state of immediate fire. In the growing sounds From your open mouth, I let a seed fall. Hips have waited, With legs, the growing boughs. You stretch towards the burning rush In the feverish skies. A kiss, close to your heart, Pacing back from ending… Continue reading Poem – “Connecting Kiss” – Modern Romanticism – 1/13/2022

Poem – “Eyes upon a Downstream” – Modern Romanticism – 1/13/2022

Send soldiers To her. Pull her From tragic ruins, Leaving the sparks. Water And laughter Runs the same breath From her shattered lungs. Wake me Upon the smile I recognize. Hand in hand, A dance to create the colors. Fire With desire Holds her at the tower, Threatening closure. Send those knights. Keep her life… Continue reading Poem – “Eyes upon a Downstream” – Modern Romanticism – 1/13/2022

Poem – “Make Way for Oceans” – Modern Romanticism – 1/13/2022

In this sleep, Brought on by the snow. Each corner we weep, Driven low. Playing the harp in the cold, Staying the heart on its old Journey Among frost and loss. Situate, instigate Tides of nocturnal wrath To keep the fever. Oceans come, Hands will leave, After the first wave. Recession in this stage, Regression… Continue reading Poem – “Make Way for Oceans” – Modern Romanticism – 1/13/2022

Quote – “Why Death is Inherently Meaningless” – 1/12/2022

"How does a person understand meaning? By remembering it. If we remember death, we are recalling an absence. At the same time, we are recalling the pain that defines the absence. We remember love, though become deluded at the thought that it, too, has died. Love does not die, though life does. Love does not… Continue reading Quote – “Why Death is Inherently Meaningless” – 1/12/2022

Poem – “The Waiting Game” – Modern Romanticism – 1/11/2022

Turn around. The sun has risen. You face the starlit sky, counting to infinity. How many seconds? How many grains upon a frozen shore will your mind become lost in? Beyond my arms, which direction is yours? Beyond the scarlet warmth, where will you turn? Your dreams face a sadness and scorn. Your heart, wrapped… Continue reading Poem – “The Waiting Game” – Modern Romanticism – 1/11/2022

Poem – “Persuading Eyes” – Modern Romanticism – 1/11/2022

Forego this.These clothes were bandages.This bedHas been our grave,Laid to rest in each other's petals,Our tears, - But no rain will reach us. BuriedAnd cremated,Shutting a casket's lidOver our closed eyes.A cover,A storyConcealed, without memory.We forget, in bliss.Death reaches us, upon the kiss. Touch of Iscariot,With denial that love, from aboveBled us dry. We burn… Continue reading Poem – “Persuading Eyes” – Modern Romanticism – 1/11/2022

Poem – “Backwards Walk to Embrace” – Modern Romanticism – 1/11/2022

Stir the Eyes that roam, Hands that see The plain view of something Somatic. Entertain with Nights of naked breast, Open arms, Closed caress. Wipe tears From bandaged eyes. Wait for me As I fall from skies. Your arms were never smoother, While our oceans are calm. I retreated from Winter, in its decay. With… Continue reading Poem – “Backwards Walk to Embrace” – Modern Romanticism – 1/11/2022

Poem – “Her Cue to Cry” – Modern Romanticism – 1/11/2022

Sordid angel stirs, before her coffin is lowered into the soil she bathed within, dirtied upon the crying smile. Caretake, until she takes water, to create the drought. Her love dries, while her life dies beneath the stagnant moon. Small pebble dilated in the dark skies, embraces her ocean, pulls her up for a moment… Continue reading Poem – “Her Cue to Cry” – Modern Romanticism – 1/11/2022

Quote – “To Kill or to Embrace the Monster” – 1/9/2022

"There is a monster in each of us, dying to be let loose. When we subdue the monster, we hurl it back in its cage. Can we kill it? We cannot. Our true outcome should be to embrace the beast, and then watch it weep. Why does the monster release these tears? It is because… Continue reading Quote – “To Kill or to Embrace the Monster” – 1/9/2022

Poem – “As Close as I could get” – Modern Romanticism – 1/8/2022

Dirtied rose painted by misfortune. A sun and a moon between the stained clouds brandishing their discontent, watching from afar, loving from a distance. I kept holding while you wept, slipping from the tears in your hands. Your tragic eyes saw the skies, while I waited for the burning caress closest to the warmth of… Continue reading Poem – “As Close as I could get” – Modern Romanticism – 1/8/2022
