I once dreamt up a golden girl
With 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 ‘round
Into 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
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
But quiet your storm
and find refuge in me.
