  • Unbeautiful

    an explosion
    from the known to the unknown
    that which was
    strictly forbidden

    are you one of
    Saturn's realm -

    bursting rose covered
    in ice and flames

    the drinking of ether;

    an explosion of poison,
    a logical fallacy
    of the addled redress -

    i dream of silk buildings
    white wind
    untouched -

    the Holy virgin covered -

    I dream of sleepless nights lost
    somewhere else -
    and what does it matter?

    for the sake of
    a feeling, i lose ground;
    hopes like gasoline
    fry my weary eyes with heat.
    and i swallow the glass
    of ether down.

    --

    there is still
    not enough time
    and all the other times there is
    too much.
    this is the problem
    computed by
    the mathematician
    based on
    more than
    faith. there are no works,
    save these
    we're conspiring to end:

    tilted madness
    on a slight axis,
    it appears real enough for us
    to touch and taste
    and want more.

    growing up in the dark

    plants exist outside of time.

    ---

    oceans pulled and anchored down;
    soft spine of some living creature
    love me until my death or
    the complete failure of what i am.
    knowing pain and fear, my haste
    dwindles into less than what i am.

    i become a skeleton thing,
    trying to put clothes upon
    the purest desires of my jutting bones.
    . . .
    an explosion

    that isn't beautiful.

    I especially enjoyed :


    oceans pulled and anchored down;
    soft spine of some living creature
    love me until my death or
    the complete failure of what i am.
    knowing pain and fear, my haste
    dwindles into less than what i am.


    I could feel the frustration and plea of wanting to be loved despite.......
