Lover,

(if, anymore,
we are such things
and not cryptids of Eden
banqueting on apologues
as two magicked statuettes
living in a glyph stone,
frozen in tableaux)

do moments or millennia pass each midnight?
What the Hell has happened while I wombed away my life?
What is left to live on, the bones of ancient mania?
Do they still build man,
woman,
little notes,
firestarter songs to enslave the very sky gods
with the filaments they used
once
to watercolour
the height of you . . .
?

This was so Beautiful, Shane... :heart:


martyrs of wisdom
we weave eternal dreams
bleeding agony

Hm, I see NaPo works for you.
Beautifully woven, complex language
that creates a picture of ache and disillusionment.

You sweep bloodied hands at ghosts my friend. Punching through them, like they are not there...perhaps they aren't...?

Perhaps not! I often wonder if I haven't made up this entire cosmic disaster, phantoms, haunts and all.

so beautifully crestfallen...
"What is left to live on, the bones of ancient mania?"
I feel that gaping void for the things that have transpired...the illuminated pieces of dust - the little quiet moments...:heart::hug: I hope you're keeping well, Shane.
