In the absence of temperance,

In the absence of temperance,

I indulge in you.

Submerging myself into the depths of your being,

With an insatiable thirst for your flesh.

Drinking your essence with my lips,

Becoming intoxicated,

Dominated by the power of your skin.

A servant to your body.

I worship you.

In the absence of temperance.

But the temperance I am left with
Every Morning Reborn

Threat and Crisis
Theses are words I have accepted

I deserve nothing else...
But the temperance I am left with

Life's rare and divine ecstasies
Snatched by the apathetic

Thieving currents

When the stars begin to fade
I may just change my ways
Until that time doth come
I'll try and catch the sun

the cat
waits for her enemy
to make the first move
though this foe
has his eye
on better prey

I wish so hard that uou would just turn around and
spark my heart
light the fuse that explodes the suns stars and moons
from out of my tempered heart,
to give a word spoken in that one way,
to touch with that delicate intent
to reach for me
and fight for me
and pull me away
from these empty phantasms
calling to my sex
release me.
Open me up to the universe
and let me explode with with mystical madness
let me paint with colours the endless sky
save me from this fortified heartened mess
My love, light me with your fire!
The one that she brings back alight.

re endlessly castigated for our lack of temperance

With our passion all spent they would have us repent our consent
with blind zealotry they refuse to relent opposing our mergence
so when curing prurience leave one percent of passion unspent.

As we share these moments and begin our physical ascent
be aware that they will not capitulate in calling for our penance
with our passion all spent they would have us repent our consent.

Remember this simple covenant in order to circumvent
the condemnation of our actions as unforgivable flagrance
so when curing prurience leave one percent of passion unspent.

In these sheets we have long forgotten the virgin's lament
because the silent weeping is drowned out by our cadence
with our passion all spent they would have us repent our consent.

By our mutual pleasure we have earned their unrelenting resent
and we are endlessly castigated for our lack of temperance
so when curing prurience leave one percent of passion unspent.

The cries of fanatics prove their opposition to be hellbent
they would prefer that we endure the torment of abstinence
with our passion all spent they would have us repent our consent
so when curing prurience leave one percent of passion unspent.

Like a poem made for devils
like a hanging tear that begs to halt until forgiven

The soured lips
the sun sipped mouths
scratch print to a sea of grass
Its sun tipped and drowned into everyone

The warp and the fast paced move  Believe in prevalent reality can giggle you to much
The eyes will sound asleep into the blur

there is no temperance or virtue

Believe what you want to believe
there is no temperance or virtue
they will break your heart
they will only hurt you

I am equally as invigorated
By the temperance
Of modern convenience
And the dominance of nature
As I am terrified
Of total dependence
Of modern man
On everything electric
