u.
sharpest note
on sheet music,
eyeing half-steps
with displeasure,
you ring the toll
with vibrating thunder,
storm iris
and electric ticks.

you said i quit:
those words weaved
into the slits
of my digits
and i quivered,
wavered
because i fear you
because i adore you
because i love you.

i wanted to blanket
every lie i ever told
myself and stitch
the quilt around my neck;
knitted lace
ties together
the part i want to be;
and the part that i am.

living to die
and floating
in purgatory;
your touch
the eve of heaven;
the wait,
corrupted monsters
roaming the monasteries,
the hellhole of my
flawed continuation.

i.

feudalism of the mind,
again(st) an uncharted heart;
personal saga two.

but this is the second part
of the third time.

articulation is a siren,
unable to pull the trigger for,
fearing she'll do it willingly,
however
you are still

the light bulb
in my skull.

turn me on
and keep it pulled
until the buzz 
fizzles into
summer attics.

some are addicts
and lament
their heart
in a jar,
but the glass
is a great conductor
of the beat's
lively orchestra.

and i want you
to have it, sweetheart.
see these scars
that i've cut for two;

own my heartbeat
and her choruses.
Day 16

Start of the second half of National Poetry Writing Month and still going strong. Today's piece is abstract, indeed. And if you squint your eyes you'll see how I used the following prompt:

NaPoWriMo's used prompt(s):
- write about what you don’t know
