Poem – “The Mute Angel” – Romantic Poetry – 2/10/2020

I gave from withinThe merriment of a certain whim,Gifted from a heart, made of solidified embers.Of the sparks that dance sideways with the twisting breezes,I was the angel without a voice, who gave unto the distantMy heart, with itself in drenched pale hues.She, a woman with deepening hurts,Deepening sorrows.I could not let her see another… Continue reading Poem – “The Mute Angel” – Romantic Poetry – 2/10/2020

Poem – “Like the Hell that had been Patient” – 2/9/2020

Hell is a patient sort,Willing to wait for itself to coverWhat we will name to be human.What is it to be merciful?To have said this, is to meanThat there are deeper things, than Hell.For I believe,That even Hell can be burned from our life.Its fires are meager.Hell is still a patient sort,Willing to wait for… Continue reading Poem – “Like the Hell that had been Patient” – 2/9/2020

Poem – “In Arms, Forever…” – Romance – 12/11/2019

Together, and nowWhen we will allowOurselves, to spit upon the blight,The doubt,That held us back,There is green upon the leaves, when autumnal frost still cakes them.I am in belief, that this love will flourish, with a crown of blood droplets,Rubies, tears from the form,And sapphire, tears from the face.We are together, in arms, forever...To bleed… Continue reading Poem – “In Arms, Forever…” – Romance – 12/11/2019

Poem – “Your Little Desperation” – Romance – 12/4/2019

With one wicked remarkBy your feathered tongue,A lightness in your voice,To soothe me,Down into unwarranted pain.And the sting comes upon my arms,And my legs,And my neck,Is enough to be drunk. I would call this pleasure,Were the levels not so different,Between yourself and me.And were our faces not so different,Of your own and my own.I am… Continue reading Poem – “Your Little Desperation” – Romance – 12/4/2019

Poem – “The Bird without Wings” – Romance – 12/2/2019

Upon thy broken and velvet back,There is a tiny frailness,A little bird without wings,It sits, while I sit, and I paint,To see what I've always envisioned,A woman with eyes like onyx stonesWithin a lake of sapphire,And a face of pure porcelain,Dotted with freckles like leaves in another lakeOf immaculate white milk. But, the bird atop… Continue reading Poem – “The Bird without Wings” – Romance – 12/2/2019

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 – “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 – “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

Poem – “A Fable of Limitless Grief” – Romance – 11/22/2019

Place me at the direction,Like a child with two teeth to spare,Of the place where a home resides,On its own,In the great wilderness,The infinite wilderness,Of my limitless grief. I wish to be out,Yet, I cannot stay out,Because, my mind is where hours are lost,In the thoughts.You were beautiful in a form,With eyes that shone above,… Continue reading Poem – “A Fable of Limitless Grief” – Romance – 11/22/2019
