The earth moves endlessly... adrift
my umbral awareness. Whether I am wilting
or birthing dawn, the earth moves...
The soft lullaby never changes; I trek barefoot
amidst another sapphire shedding its blue
as it exists.... vast within my eyes, pooling
upon my tongue like a nescient whimper.
Within this submersion, I unearth hymnal stars
as porcelain moths gown my quivering hands—
my childhood yoke to the flowered fog
and upon unopened palms, I will bend light
around the curves.
I gather my imperfections...

Oceanic, is the weight of all being;
darkness envelops me, and I am given new life.
I lie breathless in a sea of resignation,
gauzy-eyed and infinite
while the hazy reminiscence of stars
awakens to stillness, dreaming...

How can I compose beyond words
where all that is spoken is still—
a spectral reflection hushed beneath
umbral waters, submissively swept
by the pnuema of your palm.
I inhale air without breath,
emerging to rediscover the warmth
of innocence, sentient white
like an amorphous sun—or of indigo
embalming skin, caressing the aching
need of something deeper.
Because within each fragile existence

to golden amber mist,
an exquisite sorrow
laced with completeness
and deep weightlessness...
The earth sighs,
exposing the branches of my soul,
awaiting the anxious silk of snow
to begin anew

The dark soul of night is a wild drink
of soft, cherished amber and ripe rose, exposed
and unconfined, yet intimate in her fragility.
Her heart beats with an erotic stillness —
eloquently woven syllables upon the palms of god,
drifting delicately along acoustic lines; I taste her heartbeat
within my own.
She breathes in rich, warm shades of aubergine,
a form of purity in my enduring solitude
as the fervor of her bosom etches out the heartache
of an unkempt...

I flutter beneath intimate touches,
intricately woven prayers across my spine,
delicately prospect to endure synonymously
with curves molded along another
so labyrinthine in perception,
yet, elegantly rare
where we exist, in unfolding embraces,
liquid waves pouring galaxies made from
sorrow'd peaks...settling within an organic mahogany,
a tangible beauty known to none other.
You awaken my beholden breath
as I inhale truths in trembling monoliths
imprinted on pages stretched across

Unquiet dreams shift,
sauntering coaxing vibrations
over sacred words like waves
towards the dawn of your rhythm.
Nerves pulse into storm, birthing
your voice beyond the grace of god
like ichor playing throughout solemn veins,
scribing kingdoms in dry palms.
I long to breathe deeply in
the warmth of your enigma,
weaved slowly, a transcendental hush
splayed across tattered bones.
But suspended overtures genuflect
themselves in immaterial cocoon,
embroiderer's silk exhaling scars

Your words fall upon me like indigo rain
pooling in the belly of my wilderness,
bittersweet... sustaining algorithm,
sovereign hymns ... quelling the amber
Yet so intimate your silent possession of me
as desire rose wanton within my breast,
the ghosts under your tongue
threading shadows of solace
in between my hollow spaces
Obliteration... to sate my aching need of life,
your shapeshifting tenderness
emanating liminal waves,
awakening... into depths beyond the stars, ...

Echoes in Fragmented Memory
Silence echoes in shadows of vacant stars
Windswept memories that whisper death into acrid veins
Bleeding onyx inwoven throughout masochistic vale
Godless pall of pernicious desire
I curse the emaciated sun, born of nihilistic dreams
Asphyxiations resonating with weight of darkened shades
Buried deep within my apocalyptic flesh plagued
Unhallowed by necromantic tongues
Yet aeons subsist in pale ash reflection
My childish longing adrift in rhapsodies bled white
Dulcet along the wounds of somnolent sorrow

Sojourned Souls (co-written by UbiquitousVoid)
Neath willows redolent of silken tress
We lay, whereupon the moon spites day
Like an auspice of its penumbra, pressed
As we could watch the stars forever wane
Through bewitched eyes and smoke softened edges
Dispensing the grace of endless skies
We savor the aura of contentment, enraptured
In reflections of its isolated night
These veins, like webs upon the bone
These boughs that lust of the marrow
And these reveries that turn flesh to stone
Somehow flushed my deluge, shallow
And I rose...
13th Apr 2016 6:22am
Drifting aeons in breathless winter
upon the mourning midnight glade,
herein I lie in undying sleep
entwined in primal shades.
Unfurling in velvet-winged embrace,
humming with subtle nocturnes,
lulling my dreams tenderly across
the icy winds of despair.
caress thy solemness unto me.
Drown thy sorrow into mine,
immersed in bittersweet mystery.
Invoke within me feral hunger,
woven beneath flesh and bone.
Release this chasm of emptiness
bore into submissive...
