I spend most of my time writing and doing whatever I can to continually escape the pressing responsibilities of life.

I also enjoy making music.

i've no appetite anymore
i've no appetite left
there is no room for hunger
for thirst

no time for sleep

no room
for anything
other than you

there is no other desire
there is no other need
no other darkness or light
no oxygen or otherwise

there are only those
slight curls
rounded imperfect
potential energy
pouring off of the top
of your pretty head

all i can do is gasp for breath

nature, color, symbolism
embodying themselves
in that body of yours
painted on your skin
tattooed on the soul
you are a work of art
my favorite exhibit
such beautiful existence
itself is an anomaly

i have none else to offer
but what's left of me is true

you've really made
quick work of me, haven't you?

I've got chump change
in my bank account

and bad vibes brooding
in my brain

I'm somewhere in between
average and clinically insane

but when you look at
me like that I shiver and I shake

my heart my soul
my blood my bones are all
laid bare for you to break

that moon is nothing
short of super

how could I put it
in words?
there are no words,
there are no words

I struggle to find the words

and that tree
something I've never
seen

drowned in silver
fabrics,
cosmic silks
stellar feels

the moon could
encompass
the universe

but that tree is
defined by its roots
and its roots grow
so very deep

and that tree is dying
and that tree is real

and in death it radiates
absolute grace

absolute elegance

complete serenity,
morphed &
wronged by nature

but so pure
so purely pure

& in the tree's shadows,
stars in the sky
sort of waver, they
flutter lifelessly

the moon and
the tree,
yew I believe,
are the peak
of all I've ever seen

a moon that big, has
a lot of room for sour
thoughts
but that yew tree
is all that matters

that yew tree
is the most beautiful thing
I've ever seen

that super moon,
that literal super moon,
universally incredible
thing

something that emanates
all happy thoughts,
all tides,

it cradles romance
it embraces wonder

it is everything

and that moon,

well, that moon

that moon is (almost) as beautiful
as that yew tree

i love you, Sylvia

honestly;
what could you possibly see in her?



"She's blonde and
she makes me feel bad
about myself. What more
could I possibly want?"

beautiful, this lonely night
this predictable darkness
that befalls the ground
the trees
the souls
those things of substance

I look at you
you look at them
you check your phone
you count the lights on the ceiling
you readjust yourself
you curse enemies under your breath

and I look at you
ethereal, immaterial
pure essence
pure strife
pure lust

third time is the charm
three times I've been
inebriated
incapacitated
seeing, feeling, smelling,
hearing
begging to be touching
you

oh, you are beautiful
oh, you make me miserable
oh, I like it so

my what pretty webs you spin

it's absolutely terrible
when I bring myself this low
but the stimulus I savor slow

my end is wherever you begin

i walked into the room
& it smelled like a woman that i loved
but don't misunderstand me, okay?
i was in no garden, i was among no flowers

i was in the city, surrounded by steel

i was rainfall, the storm cloud

i was in the wind as it seared
her one and only face
as she walked ever uphill

this is a woman that i love
because she is so far above it

i wasn't among the physical

i was within the universe
as the universe was within her
as the universe needs her

and as i need the universe,
i need her

i walked into her
essence and being
there is nothing more, okay?
i am no one, i am her

"I'll make you feel loved
and I'll lead you astray"

Or is that just what
you're hoping I'll say?
