What beauty, he had
become my muse overnight
What can I not love?
Elizabeth Jan 1
Years end, the
world weeps while our
children play dead.
Elizabeth Sep 2020
Your silence is too loud.
I am never a fool, once
again I hear you speak of shame.
Don’t let nostalgia bemuse you, once
again I find you prey.
Do you still see yourself, once
again and again and again.
I love thee.
Elizabeth Sep 2020
I live in a dream within a dream,
hearing the sirens of silence,
a human is a being of deciding,
letting go of the morrow...

My love.
Remember to remember. But
don't find me in what you can't remember.
This is all that I can give.
My sweet teeth, eat
my fingers clean.
Elizabeth May 2020
A succession of
bodies stiffly multiplied,
the blindmen, madmen!

Dust to dust,
the wheel does stop, oh
the wheel does stop!
—eyes rattling the sky.

Trotting along the outlines,
a duel of stirring clouds,
falsifying sheaves of nostalgia,
rebuking its dreary demeanor.

A comedy of the flesh
procured us to falter.

Dust to dust,
growling in between frolics,
inflicting a strange quiver,
death, ruthless as any lover!.

Love me when I awake,
I pledge to duplicate,
sprawling about unclothed,
ceasing our funereal prose.

A ceremony of the flesh,
procured us to transfigure.

Dust to dust,
the wheel does stop, oh
the wheel does stop!,
—your eyes rattling my sky.

Irritating the stars,
incinerating Sirius,
remorseless to its demise,
heart’s hitherto delirious.

Setting the flesh aflame,
procured an eternal inferno.

Dust to dust,
lying under your eyes,
heed to my hearts desire,
love me when you awake, my fire. . .
