imposing purples not much dampened the darkness

 "the object of the most crucifying attention
at any chosen time trapped equation
had been one of a farther lighted fraction
of some purplish wavelength, jaded in traction
that poured sparse in not much reasons
given away to an unrelenting darkness nation"

Knew I was slipping offboards since the retrograde
knocked down by shadows with mysterious depths

Thunder stones of the mocking audience
consumed conscience in installments
Shamed corners of frilled draping
were nibbled and eaten to nakedness
Mealybug whites in powdery shower
scrapped off the spirited juices

The last crop of purplish rays
got focussed beyond perimeters
of self-squabbling egoism
in pettysome amplifications

Still the glimmers caught farther
flushed in like electrified adrenalin
Were they the ghastly desires or selfishness
or at the least, small shimmers of hope?

"decaying souls killed any thrown decoratives
expectations surged by sighted lights waned off
self-deceptions garnered suicidal extensions"

when those lying beneath mealybug whites were roughened black skins
when I knew all left out in you were the same pitch darkness as mine

Why did I seemed to be luring you for futuristic constant suns unknown?

Let me be warned of that
my corner dimming lantern
had already blown out
and spilled its kerosene
to vaporous benzenes

We Shall See

Don't tell me what's on your mind
I don't want to believe it
Assumptions I'm scribbling
But I'm thinking the same thing
Let's not give it power
Let's ignore it's relevance
Revel with our masked affections
Its a bliss in this moment
Use each other for ourselves
Indulge on our cravings
I beg of you let's not ruin this
Even though we both know what's coming
Forget the future we for see
I have waited for you, at last we will meet
Ride the pony until it's red
In the end it will stay dead

There you go as I watch you
Smile with acid burning my goo
A sentence you will be in my ten page book
Hook up number three that sang no hook.

Iím Sorry

Iím sorry I behaved that way for many years,
I was an immature young man for a long time,
Unsure of things with so many irrational fears,
I should have been able to see, to read the signs.

My feelings went astray somewhere along the way,
Come on, letís be real with ourselves, honest to God,
We arenít teens any more but I just hope and I pray,
Because I donít want to keep up with this faÁade.

I know married couples go through difficult times,
And nothing is perfect but we have to realize,
We have broken our sacred vows and thatís not fine,
We have shattered our cores now we should open our eyes.

Iím sorry I donít feel the same way anymore,
But I think you should know the straightforward truth,
There is someone else because we opened that door,
I have been unfaithful, deceitful and uncouth.

And though I may or may not ask for your forgiveness,
Itís a terrible thing when a man leaves his wife,
I wan't the person to bring you happiness,
But I think without me youíll have a better life.
