On the Rocks- III

On the Rocks- III

I drain the glass of whiskey
And let it fill me up
There’s a message in
a bottle, right there
I cared less with the last one
And I’ll care less with the next one
At some point, I
Won’t even care
I’m looking forward to that

I know I’ll meet you there

Night Vision

20141014-192536.jpg

Night Vision

It’s like how you learn
To see in the dark
When you’re locked in there
Indefinitely

Like you train yourself
To breath water
Instead of air
And then keep breathing
If you’re lucky

Like you learn
To love the burn
When you’re sparking
Electricity

I’ve wanted to die so long
That I want to live today
I’m ecstatic

It feels good
To feel, finally,
Happy

Fear

Fear

There are fears
vulnerabilities
Putting my heart on a platter
for you
it was never easy

But I did it
for myself
I needed to

‘Completely’ was
the only way I knew
how to love you

I’m afraid now
because I can’t fix this,
Repair this, or
Despair this
See…

I love you so much
That it scares me

Gluttony

bite

Gluttony

Another bite
just one, one more
Let the fragrance engulf my nerves
the way your intoxicating pull
draws us inside out
Soft, tender nibbles
Teeth on my neck
And nowhere
for you to turn to
Juices running down my chin
I wouldn’t lust for
pure ambrosia
As I do
for your skin
This ache
Gnawing hunger pangs
rippling through

Would that I could take
Another bite of you

The first of my Seven Sins. Hope you liked it. More on the way! 🙂

Hide

hide

Hide

I should have kept this love inside
There it could have suffocated
Silently
Without any of this
Protest
Silently, it could have suffocated
There it could have writhed
And died
I should have kept
this love
inside

Since yours has
already died
I’m empty, full of broken pride
I should have kept
this love
inside

Possession

poss

Possession

I wonder
What it would be like
To have you here
With me
Legs entangled with mine
hand splayed across my middle
Your sweet breath on my neck
It would be
Ecstasy

The moon would have her song and
The Tides wouldn’t have
To run dry
The sun needn’t ever come up
We could spend eternity, in that wretched languor,
you and I,
The symphonies of nature could end in madness
The world, as we know it, could disintegrate
The oceans could drown it all, till everything alive was dead,
We’d lay there together, you and I,
I’d be drowned in you, instead

I think I am already,
No wonder I can’t get you out
Of
My
Head

The spiderweb cracks across my roof
tell me stories,
of all they’ve seen
They know the hours
I wrote
Waking to dawns
Through nights
That have never been
The patterns replicate, like inky shadows
Etched permanently
Part of my skin
Images burned
behind my eyelids
Nestled
In the hollows
Of my eyes
Within
The glitters of
Maddening intensity
Alight
Cracks, through which
the surviving insanity
seeps through
Craving the dark
And in the dark
Come alive
When they reach
You

And I own nothing
And I am nothing
Except that one
Singular possession
Till my last breath I’ll keep
And you’re the last thing
on my mind
when my head
hits the pillow

Is it any wonder then,
That I can’t sleep?

Voids

v2

Voids

Lapses of judgement
In moments of indecision
Hesitance
From emptiness
Gnawing away

Eating at the edges
Denuded
Eroded
Gaping maw like scars
Barren fields of thought
The wasted space

Of oblivion, of eternity,
Both potent promises
Of love
Both
vacant lies

Abysses loom
Behind every breath
Behind every pulse
Scented in blood
Staring, desolate
abandoned,
are dry eyes

Voids live
In those black
parallels
Haunting
the real world
with disbelief
Perpetuating voids
of regret
Feeding off the pain
And the fears grow on
Past all
Reprieve

Voids
All irreparable
Voids
