The Wedding

Drink steadily and swiftly the wine of a bonding,
Which flows so eagerly from the fountain of ill will,
What true purpose for this day?
What will tomorrow bring?
What was once for love is now for drunken lust,

Its just another pain,
Its not out of love, but a lonely; lustful soul,
The food is exquisite and we can masquerade,
For just a day we celebrate with the warped ceremony,
What was once for love, is now for hate,

Why do we love to torture our own kin?
I look not at myself, but into the souls of the wedded,
Those that would say "I do" one moment,
Then tomorrow stand at the podium of separation,
That which lies within the court, in the hands of an earthly judge.
What was once for love is now for status,

But more status lies with the divorced and unclean,
Then with those who stay together and pure.
And as I look at the blank faces of the uselessly warped,
I realize my message is as useless as the wedding was.

They said I’m so greedy They said I’m so unfair It’s only sex that I want And feelings I don’t care They said I’m not happy If I couldn’t stick to one They said my love is empty And sincerity is none You just don’t know what it feels like To be called unjust To be called restless And a slave to lust Who are you to judge me On how I should live I am also human Who sin and forgive They said I play safe They said I’m a coward I switch when I like it And get all the reward They said I’m confused But that is not so I am just free to choose Love is for everyone I know.

Inaction and Reaction
Posession This demon's taken control of me Depression I curse myself and my incapability Regression I wish, I hope, to go back to the day Dispassion When I didn't care about it, either way Displacement Why are my thoughts so out of place? Abasement Mayhap it's someone else with my face Chastisement Punish me, now, for I spit and I curse Excitement It feels so bad, and I want it to be worse Searching I look for a way out of all this Lurking Shadows hide me, my courage I miss Waiting I see it there, my eyes it will haunt Hating I look for the moment when I can taunt Distraction It looks away for a moment or three Inact

To Melt
Hush, listen, a dance of heart beats- an awkward, painful fluttering like heavy snowflakes struggling to stay afloat in the empty expanse of somber sky fearing, not the iniquitous fall from grace, but the scolding caress of the torrid earth below.

ahhh, after Oh, The Morn Has Not Yet Here, popped into my head, the words of this started forming, and this is just an observation, don't get offended...

wow...i was just skimming your gallery (and may i just say, i'm quite impresed with what i've read, bravo!) but this. I applaud you. You are still young (even though you may be sick of hearing about how young you are) but it amazes me that there can be so much cynicism in one so young. your poem are often so different and reflect the moods of the world. I have known the pain and the joys of love, and the bitterness that it may result in. the emptiness is there too, but the way you capture it is amazing. I can offer you nothing more than my praise and continued devotion to your writing...keep it up!!

Well thank you for the praise on this poem and my gallery. I always enjoy it when people get something out of my poetry.

Nice, you must have spent a lot of work on this. It feels really professional and classical...
H-P-Lovecraft's avatar
Well, i try. I wish I was professional, then maybe I'd make some money off my hobbies.

Okay, seriously, you must be some form of reincarnation of the Buddha. How can you possibly be thinking these things when your so young? I never thought I would idolise someone so much younger than me, but...wow...I idolise you for you ability. When they develop further the world is yours. Your way of thinking amazes me, because it's like mine now, and I thought mine was developed. You are fantastic. Keep it up, and keep on changing!

I'm one of those "status". And all you say there is absolutely true.
