a pseudo-poetic prolix of disconnected thoughts (ii) ~ [//patchwork poetry cut & paste//]

pluck datura petals
from marcesent lashes
&
turn paper thin memories
to nostalgic pot pouri ~
... entomb
my pressed flower mouth
between the emerald sheets
of snow globe thoughts
& tilt skewed reminiscence
[20 across]
the eclipse in your eyes...
*
do you
like the blue sheen
of my ashen complexion [?]
we could pretend
there's no silver shimmer
in my periphery
when you still my
dystopic dystonia
[it ruins the illusion
that i'm infallible]
... because
i never wanted
to be so human, darling
never wanted reality
to be
such an unbearable burden
*
[you are]
a damp pillow case
& deep bruises
riding the crest
of protruding bones ~
... i couldn't rinse you
from my marrow
if i bathed in lethe,
gulped oblivion
like a nepenthe
to swallow filthy memories
backwashed by the dead...
