Most beautiful,Most graceful sweepOf your skin, on its wayTo the bedOf soil,To be dead,To be stilled, by thisApocalyptic love. A fire takes you,Sent from burning HeavenTowards loving Hell.Swing your palmAround the dagger, in hand,For deep in fleshIt may arriveTo birth you. Swollen eyes,Heartfelt cries,Passion that glorifiesThe sensation that dies. Lustful smileBattling the mileOf pleasure, to […]

Poem – “Submissive to Love” – Romanticism – 1/24/2021

Where I feel,When I feelFrom somewhere deep,From a place, fast asleep.I do not diveTo know from where it quakes,To merely surviveAt the toll of what history makes. Within words, so transparent,Though, sometimes untrue,I look to the darkFaces, that surround me.I realize their wisdomIs so unseen. I look to love,Comprehending its fill of a gap,Enough words […]

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.

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 […]
