A vessel, a gleaming spiderweb
Darkened by the colors of your skies.
You grew to know each vine you fed
While fierce in stare, torn and bled.
I loved, while all did surround
With the moon phases, trickles from cries –
Pale and hollow to the bleak decay.
To wield the stone, to skip the heart
Growing dim after each day.
Senseless to the symptoms of your eyes,
As each grain is fed until life dies.
Nowhere to run atop these suds.
In lust, to each their own within mud,
In love, while remembrance makes the stars –
Saluting each angel, crushed from afar.
Still to caress the raven’s scalp,
To kiss the ending where no one helped.
Here to bid morning its non-arrival
While forests turn green, lives become dust
While winter, the pirate, sheds seeds of lust.
Kind gravity from a bleeding moon –
Walk in the light, resounding one –
All for love was shed for this ocean,
Final in a march, disguised for the motion.
Over stagnant currents,
To breath, we follow each other’s stream
To the vivid image beneath the oaks,
Growing gently the flavor
Upon our lips,
Creating tears that would strike a storm
Back to being reminiscent.
To wield your hip,

Then to a heart
Our eyes would skip
Its beat upon the untrodden path,
With steps we make,
Unknowing to each breath we take.

In the attempt to ignore,
While the waters keep flowing
Outside the gates
Towards places we abhor.
My wonderful nurse
To a child whose steps are first
Onto a ledge.
Was cover more the embrace
Than the open turbulence?
Dark clouds next to you,
Loyalty dreams in the desert
To never rob you of washed petals,
So long as the tears, the waters
Can lift us, not sink us.
Beneath sheets of sky-lit dark,

Fewest stars spread over the nighttime gleam.
You will retreat
To your more covering cover,
The concealment that bettered to reveal
All your wounds meant to heal.

Through thickened ruin,
Let the tears be your kiss
To end the life
Whose heart has gone, remiss.
Her heart swells to the loosened tide,
Revives to the reminder
That no pain came so simple,
Left so bitterly
In the hours it stayed.
A few teardrops towards the galaxy,
A world apart from the gleaming ocean,
Fewest breaths or sighs of relief,
While nothing could drink
A pure sustenance from her breast.
A beating stone within bleeding flesh,

Cold fingers run a mile
Past her tresses in the wind.
To each blackened shape,
A pencil can fill in the stars
To make the light
Inside the hurt and still-life
Void upon the surrender.
There is gentle music,
Bled as tears over the wash of you.

Keep us burying the independent flag,
For one concealed in plainest immaculacy.
Keep pulling the noose
Wrapped around your kissed throat.
To weep with me for a second more,
Before you recede,
Before you neglect to breathe,
Wiping your smile from delicate expression.
Can you hear the birds?
They have come.
Continue reading Poem #1,770 – “With all Smiles to Live for” – Love Poetry – 9/10/2021
Dropped within your open mouth.
I cannot revive
The heart that failed the second more
In the moment we gave to Heaven
The sadness to abhor.
You were waiting,

Blind with me,
Screaming in our distant torments,
Plagued with the same sickness
That kept thumping our hearts
Throughout the same wickedness.
Blissful, to the condition
That our road would not reach the same
Temperature, in steam to rise
As our faces depicted in the grain
Of the stormy galaxy.
A blade in the thick of grass,
A waist meant for the grasp
From a thousand drifts through the yearning.
A sequence while we melt with the snow,
Two sentences we could not ignore
Leaving each other’s lips.
We are unable to trace,
As we keep feasting
On roses of an esnranged garden.

In the midst of a burning world
We choose to ignore.
A slender curve,
A fallen hand,
Four burn marks from the touch,
While the thumb was pointed down.
A kiss to bring me closer
To your ever-changing patterns in the wind.
To your seasonal surrounds,
A kiss will bring me closer
Than all the flames of the wild,
Than all the temptations I have crossed
On this voyage to encompass you.
The dominant hand closer,
Continue reading Poem #1,767 – “A Kiss to Bring me Closer” – Love Poetry – 9/9/2021
The better foot put forward,
The love we keep saying
Is both our embrace and our march.
You keep the music on
To the radio’s loss of your tune.
You keep answering to the dialect
For each quivering note
A handsome appearance mismatches you
With the next prettiest world
Where nothing found you.
You keep bending hurricanes closer
Continue reading Poem #1,766 – “You Cry without Sleeping” – Love Poetry – 9/8/2021
At the sound of wind to your window.
The more a scent can leave
Across your pillow,
The less even a dog will find
You curled up in your cat attire.
