Poem – “Indestructible Love” – Romanticism – 1/23/2021

Falter,Oh, heart of mine,The play has quickened itselfAround the dancing choirOf notes that chime,Whistle,And bellow. I am in what cannot be overturned,Songster to my love,A ringing to my ears,Of no temptation to invasive fears. My world holds a sound,Of heartstrings knit together,Unable and incapableTo become unbound. Love is a challengeTo the encompassed soul.Of arms swung […]

Poem – “My Bleeding Eyes” – Romanticism – 1/23/2021

How I yearn,Placing fountain before youth,Holding her crossedIn my endangered heart.I had lovedWith only a moment to allowMy knees to bendAt the sight of her beauty. The worthiest of vowsFrom my soiled mind.A battered heartBecomes alive,For a quickened second,Relieving the past,Drowning the moment,Revealing the future. My eyesBleed all the world’s tearsUpon my hands.I stream the […]

Poem – “Your Heart Still Beats” – Romanticism – 1/22/2021

PainIn the skyFalls with the eveningOver my eyes.I will never fill this cupWith the bittersweetRemains of another day.Your eyes,Still the rainbow to find the goldAt the pile of fragmentsTo your heart. Your heart still quakesThe echoesAcross this dying earth.I wantWhat leads onMyself, to the ruinWhere your sadness behavesMost rationally.You speak of the real,As I utter […]

Poem – “She, of Submerged Beauty” – Romanticism – 1/20/2021

Open wideThe winter that disclosesThe paradiseKept to the enclosedArms, for what you nurtureLeft to the eyesOf your own. Your beauty diesUpon mimicryOf ever-falling leaves in a seasonSo soon to leave,Dropping bloodied bladesTo the fleshOf cold earth. Drink this chaliceHeld of your tears,Thin-beautyAnd countless fears. Feast your mindNot upon your heart,For a second in time,That tears […]

Poem – “Every Word is True” – Romanticism – 1/18/2021

NoneOf these tearsWere cried too earlyFrom hollow hands,For I run these stained fingersOver your heavenly curves,Bleeding with you,For every word has been true. Pain is the symphonyTo carry youPast these ruins,Beyond these discarded heartsWe cannot gatherFor the empty one,Fading our lives in the rain,Leaving trust to the grain. Every word is a symptomTo this very […]

Poem – “All Rain and No Thunder” – Romanticism – 1/18/2021

FinalWaking of a near moment,Disguised by flowers that sleep,Of petals that weep.Leaked,Fallen of droplets to the given rainThat buries a stem,Though raises the stigma,Raises the face. You leanedTo take blessing from curse,Washed your handsIn the flying nectar.You fed yourself the escape,To make of your wakeThe joys that curl themselves,Fallen into ivory,Bleeding into glory. Rain is […]

Poem – “Holding the Rose Tighter” – Romanticism – 1/18/2021

Simple woman,With dreams to bareIn quilts, unsharedTo the men who stood to stareUpon you, in the droplets,The fairFace of forgetfulnes. Hold the rose tighterIn the arms, to leave your wordsWritten in surest might,Discarded upon the thorns,Creating your pullTo where Hell feeds you the horns.To make you matter in the sin,To sting your cheeks with the […]

Poem – “Her Heart, the Heaviness” – Romanticism – 1/17/2021

BeautifulRose-red cheeks,With remnantsTo which she seeks,Outside of eyes, so wideWith the vision of somethingThat never leftUpon the ocean, so vast,Carrying her tears,As not a bath of itselfTo wash her fears. Love reveals youSomething to give a noteMore than the sympathies upon your heart.Here is no more than a symphonyTo confuse the feelings you cartFrom destination […]

Poem – “Disconnected Gravity” – Romanticism – 1/17/2021

Love,Count these stars.For theyRemind you of the manyTraces of an element,To earth, with its close faces,Broken into sand,Awakening on the shoresOf eternal forgiveness. I am hereTo hold your handThat gives way to glass,That shattersFrom whereYou held the ocean, far apartWith the moon to give you tears,With trust, in togetherness. You areFallen upon a sword,Dreaming of […]

Poem – “Naked Eye towards Naked Love” – Romanticism – 1/17/2021

Something wellsUp from the longest stream of pain,The blackest shoreOf the tormenting void. SomethingSo slender, that I forgotOf youThat does not restSo plentifullyIn this wearied mind. Your face,A notion of something slowTo bury itself,Stings me with clarity for a loss. The eyes,Those hollow cries,Those other facesThat never depart, so readily. You screamOf the land’s defeat,A […]

Poem – “How Great, the Arms of Love” – Romanticism – 1/17/2021

Pulled againstThe great oceanOf your sighing mouth,Gathering fragmentsOf your broken heartTogether, for the nextMoment, in our empty space. We love to hope,Leaning against the other,Against the barren slopePulling sidewaysThe tears that once shieldedOur vacant and lucid eyes. For we love with open gravityTo stay ourselvesUpon the earth, with its clarity. We dream in the iron,The […]

Poem – “Beautiful and Rabid” – Erotica – 1/17/2021

What final,Frozen hourNear to your sideWhere breaths come asThe stinging windOf the hurricane, in your heartBrings sensation to me? A love broken by two wings,Fallen ash,With what stingsOf surety in the midst of our desire,Of loyalty in the cracks of our fire.You meltWith the torn shapeUncovered to you,Bleak and newWith a shield to every garment.
