head thrown back,
tendrils of her hair, a cascading fall of water and sense.
the dancing curve of her exposed throat,
a gasp caught there in the shadowsalive with promise.
the space behind the curving arch of her back,
hollow and hallowed, forgotten for the moment.
the press of parted lips against the space above her erratic heartbeat--
yours to claim, yours to cherish.
yours to satisfy.
here, there is no pride, no past, only passion shared.
here, you give in order to receive.
here, you are you until you are not--
until you lose a sliver of that unique identity to become something bigger;
abbreviated to us.
La Trilogie des PrintempsLa Trilogie des Printemps2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
La trilogie des printemps.
Ici, le printemps est une trilogie du temps.
C'est un fruit fragile qui s'ouvre en trois pelures.
Il s'en vient en douce et se sauve à toute allure.
Et un jour on se dit que c'était le printemps.
C'est une entre saison d'un temps qui se compose
D'un hiver qui s'étire pour ne pas partir,
D'un délavé austère où tous les bruns chavirent
Et d'un temps où les fleurs et tous les verts explosent.
La saison du printemps blanc allonge l'hiver,
Cet amant éconduit qui lutte et qui s'accroche.
Plein de chutes de neige en rappel des hier
Où le froid mordait même

Book 39 Entry 65
War. A miniscule word that's always been an abstract in my mind; only made up of three letters, just like cat or red or mom, but behind those three letters lies a meaning that is devastating to even the things it doesn't touch. Cat means feline, sly and sneaky, and is devastating when it feels threatened and lunges, gouging your eyes out. Red is the color of blood flowing through brazen hearts, and is devastating when we see the glowing embers in the pit of our soul reach up to the back of our eyes when we are enraged. Mom is the love and affection that every man is given unconditionally. I never had a mom, but I've b

If you saw yourself the way I do
You wouldn't ever change.
Everything perfectly placed.
With every slash of the makeup,
Every cut of the hair,
You're making my heart break.
Changing yourself for this world
That just doesn't care.
So please, babe, for the love of god,
Stop trying to change,
Because if you finally succeed
In this crazy need of yours
You're going to lose the one thing
That would have never changed.
Can you survive the rage?Can you survive the rage?6 months ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
With increased droughts
It scattering throughout
Causing kids to pout
For the water they can't live without
With the glaciers melting
an' animals relocating
an' people demanding
for something that's just a fling
with diseases spreading
an' fevers rising
an' malaria killing
cuz' of the mosquitos surviving
With a temperature intensification
And a climate alteration
In a world not meant for rapid moderation
But going through the motion
How will we survive this catastrophe
The monster changing the world more than we can see
Can you survive it, the disaster named global climate change?
Or will you be lost in its rage

born us above golden rivers thorns

and bones are bleeding soil
the goddess and the tree shared a chest at nightfall
we are red.

AbsolutionI am separateAbsolution2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
from this world
and the anger
I am apart
from the emotions
and the sorrow
I am hollow
from the pain
and sleepless on these nights
I see the colors
but the bitterness
I see the tears
but the soulless
I see the rage
but there's no absolution
I wish for peace
in the heart
that is screaming
I wish for rejection
in this war
that is feasting
I wish for endings
in the story I tell
that is nothing but a tragedy

my heart curls like a fist
and I chant hallelujah
like a stranded rebel
with cold coffee
sinking beneath my eyes
and you are filled
with the airy traces
clogging deep in your lungs,
waiting for that shot of vodka
to burn in your stomach,
with a thumping inside
And we are empty...
We have nothing to give
and our words have
long been forgotten
by the bones of the angels
patiently sitting at the altar-
staring at faded sunlight,
glowing mosaic windows
loosing the religion
that had marked their existence...
Like our vows-
Army Of UsA delightful pain strikes my chest,Army Of Us5 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
Knowing that this pain will take a turn for the best.
The scars and attempts will once be no more,
Once we both notice what we're in for.
The awful past of us will no longer exist,
And will be a previous,
Mistake at least in our hearts.
Perhaps this time we will outsmart,
The one that tore us apart.
Her wretched heart would feed off of our pain,
Just as if she was the knife to my vein.
But I have thrown out such methods,
And all of the ballads,
I have written for you are never enough,
I have such a tough,
Time fitting every thought of you into one, two, or even three.

Your MindDo you remember when this was wanted?Your Mind5 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
When the thought of normal scared you?
But now you're being haunted,
By all of these weapons, and your past too.
Do you feel every drop of blood being put to waste,
Each drop that stained your bed-sheet at night?
Can you even count the inches lost of your waist?
When each and every heartbeat,
Was useless and hurt like hell?
When it did not matter how many pills?
Each scar though would tell,
A different story and bring a thrill,
To glance at.
Do you remember these days?
Do you remember each word spat,
At you and all of the ways,
You tried to end it?
I being your mind,
Must remind you all
ZaqqumThe accursed angel weptZaqqum11 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
Beneath the withering tree
Of Zaqqum, He remembered his former
Prominent place then he spake:
"Why hast thou forsaken me?
My bitter despair is my only true
Companion, If thou hadst any
Mercy you would spare me
But even if thou offered thy
Ameliorating hand, I prefer sovereign misery"
Infernal flames shined in his glowing eyes
As seething tears of scorn crawled
Down his dark crimson cheeks
His minute horns as tiny mountains
Pointed towards the graceful heights, he scowled
Wiping his tears with coarse palms
His heart seared with boundless despair
As he beheld the vast inferno
Rivers of molten fire tr

Gone are the great lords of Banii'Rretyn,
Their unheeded destiny foretold.
For eons they lived, great fortunes amassed,
On the backs of perceived inferior kind.
Under the displeased gaze of their gods,
The grief from below was observed.
"How can this be?" cried the Greatest Divine,
As his sorrow and anger grew ever more intense.
"They are but children," a deity replied,
"Gone mad with power and greed."
"We must intercede, and somehow curtail
This blatant display of barbaric might.
