Poem – “I am the Horror in your Eyes” – Romance – 11/25/2019

What world have we not believed inUpon the making of our love?Two streams run betweenThe sides of your delicate head.A tiny form is all you have,And I'll not break itFurther, when our worlds collapse. As great enemies wanderTo where they shall battle,We'll be ever-further apart,From the other.I see your face so aligned,With thin streams that… Continue reading Poem – “I am the Horror in your Eyes” – Romance – 11/25/2019

Poem – “Under those Swipes of Scarlet” – Romance – 11/25/2019

Where beauty plays with its ashes,And sees romance in every word.Spoken by delicate and worthless eyes,Being the eyes of mine,I see, above me,Two swipes of scarlet brimming with a word. And, as that word falls onto my face,I begin to notice how it writhes,Soon when it touches my beaming forehead,Alike a drop of rain, from… Continue reading Poem – “Under those Swipes of Scarlet” – Romance – 11/25/2019

Poem – “Pour your Distant Stare into Me” – Romance – 11/24/2019

Here are glimpses for the world's most benevolent,And you have a face that would make the Earth,Lean forward to kiss its heavenly smile. Allow ocean to meet ocean,And sorrow to die away,In all we know of each other. Your stare is but two visions apart,And I know not which,To put my own glance. Hand me… Continue reading Poem – “Pour your Distant Stare into Me” – Romance – 11/24/2019

Poem – “One Tear Against a Thousand Forms” – Romance – 11/24/2019

Of all romance, and of all aromas,Romantic and aromatic,Footsteps fall onto the floor with grace,And allow the moon to drop that single tear,Upon her ever-worn and smoothed face,Alike the rocks that receive the wind. Love is a calling,To her feeble form.Though, she is but a stone,With the fragrant moss upon her gray skin,Still youthful, with… Continue reading Poem – “One Tear Against a Thousand Forms” – Romance – 11/24/2019

Poem – “Our Place in Everything Simple” – Romance – 11/23/2019

White petals, makes paths atop your pale flesh,Unseen, alike wherever your eyes trail.Unheard were the words from your parted mouth,And the love we've made ourselvesTo care for, in a place of simplicity.A mourning,Upon one morning,A few droplets were against your hair,And had stayed there,For me to count their number,And for me to pull them away,Alike… Continue reading Poem – “Our Place in Everything Simple” – Romance – 11/23/2019

Poem – “Our Love Beneath the Waves” – Romance – 11/23/2019

Of flame to forge,A love to dance upon waves,And swim beneath currents.You carried the most heated words,And breathed them upon my naked guilt.Of all waters to swallowThe buildings of Heaven,Structures meant to collapse,At the slightest movementOf a love unmeant to die. You died,Because I spoke words without leaves,Without the spring to renew it.Now you have… Continue reading Poem – “Our Love Beneath the Waves” – Romance – 11/23/2019

Poem – “The Loss of Ivory” – Romance – 11/23/2019

I buried thee in a grave,For my failure to simply save,The conditions that plague your feeble form,The additions of all terrible inconvenience,A body crippled to beEvery page of our shared tragedy.Love is now at its knees,Calling me down to see,What is only a belief. I cannot truly accept,Your loss from myself,Here I kneel as though… Continue reading Poem – “The Loss of Ivory” – Romance – 11/23/2019

Poem – “Our Faces, like Two Loving Moons” – Romance – 11/23/2019

I have wept two single tears,To where our paths shall divide.One path leadsTo a place of flame, of summer with sweetest kiss.The other leads,To a place of coldness, of winter with misery's tempest. Our faces look upon where I have shownOur world to end itself,By cuts upon its own wrist,For I know,And truly accept,That these… Continue reading Poem – “Our Faces, like Two Loving Moons” – Romance – 11/23/2019

Poem – “The Coldest Warmth” – Romance – 11/23/2019

I run around where I have seen,All where she has mustered up herself.Two little petals upon isolated cheeks,Two dynasties upon a feared woman,And I would kiss them away,Were she to never draw herself away. Two legs,Like two pillars of porcelain.Two eyes,Like embedded rocks of blue.And a haze of green is all I've seen,In forests dressed… Continue reading Poem – “The Coldest Warmth” – Romance – 11/23/2019

Poem – “The Easel and the Sturdy Form” – Romance – 11/23/2019

Great ripped veil,Above thy blessed nose,And the music around,The sturdy form painted by my brush.You are lonely without a kiss,Dear little one.With fame and might, pleasure and spite,Beauty was all you knew.And the pain was all you grew,Beneath arms,Cradled like infants, in their hollow selves,All dead, and worn,Like ice upon a rash,Beauty is one terrible… Continue reading Poem – “The Easel and the Sturdy Form” – Romance – 11/23/2019

Poem – “Mercy upon Me” – Romance – 11/23/2019

Why bow to the blame?Why bend a knee to the shame,That will cover my woes with greater stains? For tears to mark a path,Across my heavier cheeks,Must be why,I offered a goodbye,Must be why,I ate those tears as sustenance. For tears to make a journey,Across my tired body,Must be simply why,I was never the man,To… Continue reading Poem – “Mercy upon Me” – Romance – 11/23/2019

Poem – “When Faces Pour Plentiful Tears” – Romance – 11/23/2019

I was a father to her life,And even a mother to her strife,I acted my part,So that she'll resideAmong fertile valleys and sunlit glades.I was in the mood to touch,Where spots could be soothed,Where wounds could be mended,Though, eyes were only pulled closed. Among death, and among sadness,I was the most fertile, to send tears… Continue reading Poem – “When Faces Pour Plentiful Tears” – Romance – 11/23/2019
