though whispers burn up
And though your scent tempts sweet
air festers as we rot.
There is sign of life
The stale wood of this coffin.
Our moon glows through these cracks
A soft glimmer of the mourning to come
And these crisp cloths worn before
Lie that I’ll depart with you.
And I tell your corpse that I love you
I love you. I do.
And you have left me alone again.
She is half decayed and beautiful.
You told me first, whispered
Withered arms wound around me
Passing into the night.
within this hazy eden he lies
lapping up golden beams glow
beam blind and beating ties
what more could little bat know?
dazzle me love
rumbling chambers nag
deep down below
Cool cave rock bites
Little bats wings as he floats
still up here the air is warmer
flowers sing and sun beams smile
And little bat would burn here brightly
to lay with the sun a little while
Not a feeling made to be bound by words
You flow infinitely
So vast I could float in your warm abyss
Until the end of time
Then leave my body here
To gently decay within your comforting waters
Let my skeleton bury down within you
Safe beneath your deep sands
While your waters may stretch to other lands
Just leave my bones with you
Born from a kiss
Elicit whispers of a promise long
Mourned and despaired
In chance I find a starry night
Never to imagine such brilliant
You are my blue
the shiniest shade
my rose, my purple favourite
Soft petals and lingering pollen particles
That decades of rain could not erase
I would give up colour for you
remembering only those blue firecracker eyes
you would be my rainbow enough
my feelings glance at you shyly.
Emboldened by a new look
Do you see me like you did then
Have I lost my place?
I’m sure the earth
grew from your hands
I want you to cradle me
as your creation
My forever blue infatuation
And I’m back to being alone by the fire
Bleeding as the vast air
Buries me with each crackling log
That bitter bone burning
Reminds me to go back inside
The pointless sky ignores me again
