Poem – “Curves and Crying Eyes” – Modern Romanticism – 1/20/2022

Pale form, solid shape torn to dark matter in her faceless void. Why I did not endeavor to cry for the grace brought out into space? Wings had danced greater in the joyless smiles, left for fading soundscapes. For beauty that dies upon a stretched bough, hung there. Without answers, with murmurs uttering the futile… Continue reading Poem – “Curves and Crying Eyes” – Modern Romanticism – 1/20/2022

Poem – “Fatal Bliss” – Modern Romanticism – 1/20/2022

Without walking up to speed. Without the need to trace all details seen, I can hold an hourglass to the rays, above, to the signs of gray that frost would smear all reasons to love, all methods to pray. Your own, your light for fullest view to the symptoms of grace and sadness. I waited,… Continue reading Poem – “Fatal Bliss” – Modern Romanticism – 1/20/2022

Poem – “If you were” – Modern Romanticism – 1/18/2022

If you wereallowed to enterthese burning arms, readthe torn pages I have carried,no tears could escape you,no weather would erase you. Born onto the snowwhere petals lost their softness.Born to bebrought lowto the same furnace and flameof the biting frost,where we knelt. Watcherto the setting moon.Gathereramong the cherries of passion,burning in a different momentwhere breaths… Continue reading Poem – “If you were” – Modern Romanticism – 1/18/2022

All to crave,everything to breatheof the oceans in your eyes,to the life withinyour echoing cries. Since the sadnessspeaks in riddlesI am able to fathom.Since those trickling tearscan roam us in circles, - when thunder strikes,I see it coming. The same place, the spotwhere a kiss was loosenedfor the rocks. The love, the quivering fingersrepeat the… Continue reading Poem – “Our Sin of Held Hands” – Modern Romanticism – 1/18/2022

Poem – “To Kiss your Broken Form” – Modern Romanticism – 1/17/2022

It wasn't longwhen we said, we would touchbefore Heaven collapsed.I wasn't strongenough to reversethe waves, the scarsthat would send us beneaththe unfading stars. From the ropewhere I found a puddle,crystallized.From the bridgecrossed, for an impossible love,collapsing for kisses lost - upon letters we never sent. Lamentour forever sighs,our lakes, dried into vapor. A kiss to… Continue reading Poem – “To Kiss your Broken Form” – Modern Romanticism – 1/17/2022

Poem – “Pour yourself” – Modern Romanticism – 1/17/2022

Walk a mile in your sunset. Draped, all over in the shine, the divine remembrance. With a curtain taken back. With receding eyes to notice Heaven. Twin lips, boldest, reddest with a touch of faint glimmer. Wide hips, frozen scars from some other implement of warmth. Give your new waters, for another dip in the… Continue reading Poem – “Pour yourself” – Modern Romanticism – 1/17/2022

Poem – “For Defeated Lovers” – Modern Romanticism – 1/17/2022

Suffer, in place of the blame upon the barest throat, where you the love of mysteries begin to whimper breaths, begin to savor those moments before your coming death. Take your hand, cradle each finger. Recall moments we were children in the arms of fertile meadows. Glance your eyes watered of a garden, wide in… Continue reading Poem – “For Defeated Lovers” – Modern Romanticism – 1/17/2022

Poem – “All Petals are you” – Modern Romanticism – 1/17/2022

In this burning ruin, Further streams Come running From fragile eyes, Weakened heart. Tell the stars To never count what you lost, To not grieve Over the scars, the tears That were the cost, That were tossed. Your memories Into a distant dream We could not, should not Resonate for Behind the open door. Walk… Continue reading Poem – “All Petals are you” – Modern Romanticism – 1/17/2022

Poem – “A Drop of Passion” – Modern Romanticism – 1/14/2022

Walk this fever. It cannot be As severe As the weather, surrounding us In fog and bedsheets. Watcher. You look up to see The sun upon your face, As you cannot Turn away. Chestnut To raining tresses. Crystal to your smoothness, Though the seas will not calm. Carved breasts Stretch for the cup. Speaking smile… Continue reading Poem – “A Drop of Passion” – Modern Romanticism – 1/14/2022

Poem – “If I Held Her” – Modern Romanticism – 1/14/2022

If I spoke Crisp words to delicate ears, As though dropping Rainfall into deafness, Would she take to the whimper Or the whisper, in return? If I wrote Freezing lines upon the snow, Where would she go If such were signals, If such were directions? Hold her, not to scold her. Take her, not to… Continue reading Poem – “If I Held Her” – Modern Romanticism – 1/14/2022
