I once dreamt up a golden girlWith ivory eyes and strings of pearl. She looked through and pierced my soul,And in a moment, I was her fool.
We danced our way through the clouds'Til the moon came up and spun us 'roundInto its orbit and through the stars. We waltzed on Venus, Neptune, Mars.
When I awoke, my heart afloat My love I could not find. I called to her, and searching still But she left, and left me blind.
A spark licks the cigarette, bringing
ethereal silhouettes of sirens to show hollow
happiness and hidden death. What sweetness
sprouts from poison wings stealing minutes
and carrying life away. Grey hornets go
fleeting up towards Heaven’s gates.
Your words blind me. You, nor I, nor anyone else could find me once I’ve fallen into such dangerous depths.
No, I am not sure I could escape any longer.
But I will not fret, will not worry You’ve left me stupid. Content to drown in your shallow breaths To be smothered by your softest touch To die by your slightest affection It is too much.
You, with lips that beg a hurricane
Taunting on, teasing, trying for chaos Cacophonies and crashes and something Anything To end this silence. This u n s p o k e n This rigid foreign feeling.
Because the entropy has a sort of familiarity This self-destruction is home. And I am foreign. I know you’re feeling vulnerable. But quiet your storm and find refuge in me.
