someday I'll get higher than life itself and all the whimpering willows and giggling nymphs will surround me and perform their water dances as I purify the fallen river with light rays of silver that extend longingly from my fingertips, and the green of the sky will wave a hasty goodbye as the darkness fades into the sun, and the little brown shoes of the musical fairies get lost in the swaying fields of devotion, making a home among other dreams lost or forgotten in the days past, but they feed and flow into this river of mine and serve as nutrition for the rays to align, aligning in purpose and star-dusted as gold.

Madness wrapped itself around me
Like twisted branches on a forest tree.
Wind whistles through leaves on a dark Halloween
as my mind falls through hollow bodies.
Hollow bodies are picking at bark -
Pricking their fingers -
Awakening hummers from gentle unrest.

Leave the madness to me,
And a sacrifice will be made,
To the woman who stayed, and
Death will bind you to me.

Today woke me up without my consent
How dreadful is a day over the day before?
How tedious are my thoughts?
My love clutters the lives of the simple
Boys in foreign homes,
And they wish they could unsee me at all.
The travels of man do not matter,
So long as they unravel golden dreams.
A dream made of gold,
Too far out of reach.
My hopes live in the sky.
My heart underground.
Ruby Nemo May 31
guilt leaks from my eyes
and I am veiled with blame
for good reason, to hell with my name.
let me wither
in your violet shadow
[ kept company by beautiful darkness,
and clothed in the whitest of white. ]
you've stolen my arms,
you've left me unarmed
and still you will fire away
[all of the gems in this world and regret
could never repay all my debt.]
Ruby Nemo May 31
Today you slept in my bed for an hour.
When I tried to join you, you told me to leave you alone.
