Literature
Don't leave me with I'm sorry
My muse-
as I delve in the depths of reflection
this cold morning walk home,
the weight of your words
fix heavily into my heart.
Every letter digs itself
deeper, trying to find
    a grave fit for their company-
Every end of sentence sticks itself
into my flesh, though sad I become,
it is preferable to breathe the sorrow
than to feel nothing between us, at all.

Truth
When the stunning mirage
of your smile
takes ceremony on the mind,
it becomes
especially difficult
in remembering
to
breathe.

Literature
In The Warmth Of A Daydream
I slipped into reverie
at all the possibilities
that red-letter night
I shuddered disorderly,
as honesty fell
from our lips like secrets
    now rest by our feet;
And within your kiss
I found a warmth
which put my lonely, frantic heart
    at ease.
I want to celebrate you-
You are the most beautiful person
I’ve ever known.

Literature
Moonstruck
They were absent
as God
that night which allowed
a lot
of candor to be untethered.
Our gaze was lavender
in the haze of anticipation,
in the heat of your disheveled room
we play around topics
like the nervous, shaky lights
    dancing outside your window.
This furious lust, hungry like vultures;
Even the stars witness
and blush at our desire
and construct constellations, as if
required, in our mess.

Literature
Save Us
With this
bottle of bourbon
I devote the hour
to my self-destruction;
Cheers to all the hells
I encounter regularly-
To the blaring march of
my own, waning mortality-
The sober contrary
leaves me despairing
in the cool moonlight,
so lost inside some
existential hypothetical
I begin to doubt what's true
And flounder helplessly
In the silent capture
of my composure.

Not Twice
Farewell,
languid dream.
          How sweet,
          under your shadow.

Literature
All Is Well
I feel lost
but all is fine,
my concerns multiply
on a speculative line
my mind won't quit.
Lately, I am miserable at best-
Sipping on the past
I remember how happy
I felt when I was with you
         And I hurt.
:iconrider-on-the-storm:rider-on-the-storm
:iconrider-on-the-storm:rider-on-the-storm 1 2
Literature
Oh no, Sweetheart
Blow after blow
our confusing,
furtive scenario
kills me a little more.
With my face
wet on the floor;
           in spite, i persist
           that i don’t care anymore
i don’t care anymore
i don’t care anymore
i don’t care
i don’t.

Literature
I can deny you only so much
The sinuous arch of your spine
recalls, staggeredly,
back this retaliation of words
and recollection-
Proof
there was something here;
In my darkest hour,
your relaxed voice
rebelled against the rage
rumbling behind my eyes-
The void I've subscribed
Holds my hand tight
Through my sufferings
And with pleasure reminds me-
The promises we keep
don’t make any sense to us, at all.

Literature
The Future Doesn't Exist
I toast to chaos,
this remarkable night
and welcome the new year
with a personal abandon;
       eyes are quiet
       under neon light,
       inescapably absorbed
       in the mystery of you-
                ready to drown
                any discretion away
                with your kiss
                and reclaim some hope coinciding
                within this splintered heart.

Literature
The Gentle Delay of Disbelief
My trembling voice assembles
a pathetic example of pain
marked by the compulsion
of becoming untroubled,
unbounded
  by the bog of content-
I reside deep in myself
--the weight of this hurt
clenched like crow claws
upon my shoulders--
smashed in denial
and defied by the storm.
So choke down the fault
next to a soul, shattered,
yet satisfied by
the gentle delay of my disbelief.

Literature
To Save A Drowning Sorrow
My words are without weight-
Surveying, selfishly, beside verities;
This perfect disguise, veiled
by delectable lies
slowly coated and charmed
with every new spoken interlude
spewed and slumbers
near what i call “love”.
To suffocate on fervency  
is principal currency  
for any sort of comprehension;
These lessons be blessed, insipid,
bonding our mental relations
      to the mourning
      we in secret, abide.

Literature
The Woe Unfolds
Eyes assassin
Breaths with ease,
These are treasures
That guarantees
A swift destruction of heart.
The woe unfolds
Disaster and grows
Below my throat
A black hole.
Canonical longing
Is my home
A stone's throw belonging
To my decaying loam.
Trust is trying
Objectively prying
My hopes are laughing
As they die.

Literature
Dearest Ephemera
We concede to these
bygone contracts that
deter us from delight,
better suited to our needs;
For our wants satiated
by the dawn of fresh surprise;
these new amusing tides
restore our souls,
that shine no more
till come the night,
Now
our words pour,
flowing like velvet
in astounding volumes,  
dissipating into the aether
like wishes-
All birthed by the thrill
of their breathtakingly beautiful-
         Etcetera, etcetera.

Literature
Cursed Green Origami Heart
I know a mortals sense of regret;
Though, when we
dropped in the well of grief
and became doomed
with our honesty
to marred unions, I should have
leapt into the flames
instead of admiring the similarities
          warm and joyously.

Literature
Dissenting Predicament
I am of sound
mind, you fraught bitch.
Up to your neck in doubt,
suffocating on the fire you built
by your own conscious volition.
Burn; i wish you the best
in our descent.

Literature
The Ancient
Running along a naked beach,
two lovers find a secret cove.
Mysterious bliss
begins to seep through,
igniting a
     hidden passion.
Romantic fascinations.
Ecstatic minds;
beauty and     
               carefree.
The horizon breathes a
seductive poem
and rumbles to an
        intense climax
as it glides across the ocean to
greet them.
The night draws near,
and waves crash along
the old coast
and dance up the serene beach.
The sound is a
                  liquid heaven,
and echoes off the vine lighthouse nearby,
back into the ethereal sea.
They lay before an
                      epic sunset
and run their feet through the
cold gentle sand.
Lustful blur.
He takes her by the hand
and leads her deep into the cove.
An exotice incense calms the warm air.
         And then it happens.
He stumbles
upon a delicate scroll. His eyes
                                melt
as his hands unveils an

Literature
Euthanize the Night
A soft
     hush
and the dim lights flutter.
Velvet whispers
leave your moist lips
             vulnerable.
My eyes exhale;
deep and
   mesmorized,
the way a lonely sailor
   melts
as quiet land seeps
through a fog.
I hesitate to grasp
my withering remains
as your
touch
        warps me
into a metaphysical being.
[silent slave]
An invisible kiss
        penetrates
your lustful body;
We euthanized the night.
      I hope dawn will
forgive us.

Literature
these tales are sorely short
can i even feel you now
sporting your empty fulfillment
... i don't know you anymore
you and your beauty as a lover
am i so easily left behind
for you to find the generic, pretty life
which seems atrocious to me
negate the most beautiful lies
i've ever heard
and put drops of me in your coffee cup
are you kissing my absence
or basking in your pseudo sobriety
next ot you i'm feeling very shallow
i'm still collapsing with your lungs
with every heavy breathe
and i'm still driving
turning around in that space we went
visiting the circle we stood in
too often but too long ago

Literature
Hushed Bliss
Seeping into her horizon;
              a tranquil Dust
swimming in the light.
                                 Incorporeal haven.
Tacit touch
      leaves
          acid crutch.
Her lambent skin
             erotically confuses.
Intimite lips
penetrate a
phantasmagoric
        implosion
of my
                          shattered

Literature
Elysium
its 5 am in the fiordland
the poetic rhythm
of a misty lake
invites you
a leaf glides across
your face
dancing a magnificent dance in the wind.
an old wooden pier awakens
breathing an echo of jubilee
as if it once knew you.
mystic whispers soothe the senses
peculiar thoughts that time ceases to exist
harmoniously frolic by
like little children at play
there's a break in the clouds;
a break in the universe.
subconscious perceptions rapidly sparking and flowing within the mind.
a weeping willow weeps no more.
nostalgia leaves.
elysium is here.
