Why, how quickly time did aggress,
With life escaping in each exhalation,
Bedridden, I gaze into her mournful eyes
My bones, my body, once faithful, now aching,
Feel far too foreign, as though
They were not mine own.
Too far didst we irate wayfarers daringly venture,
Far too late, in these revered hissing storybooks,
Were we thoroughly told, facetiously disvalued
By the most cruel and callous gods you so reverently adored.
Had we been found just a wee bit earlier, ‘twould have easily been
Thine fantasy writ in solid fanes of exquisite blues and golds,
But, instead, here, upon these uncertainties do we brood,
Clucking our tongues in our evaluated commitments.
Wouldst time allow me to digress
Within the limited preciousness with thee,
Within these fictitiously disjointed reveries.
“Don’t delude yourself into thinking
That you’re not at fault.”, she’s at the cusp.
“You keep saying I’m the only one
Who carries the burden of blame,
Because she did nothing wrong.”, blindly she retaliates.
“She’s just as wrong.” She repeats herself
For the seventh time, “But your shit smells just as strong.”
But she, she’s fucking crazy in the goddamned brain.”,
Quickly, he points out the spaces she took giant dookies,
He can’t acknowledge the fact
That he’s diarrhea-ed all over the place.
“Your argument is that she is a child,
But your methods are the same. You reciprocate.
There are always better ways.”, she pointedly says.
“So it’s okay when she does it,
But when I do it, suddenly, I’m the villain?
What is this communism?”
She ignores the last comment,
Responds, “I never said it was okay,
My point has been that you, her, and I
Bear the responsibility of this situation.”
“Yeah OkAy, Okay. It’s all my fault.
She did nothing wrong.”, she readily turns away.
“You think that this is the ultimate form of an argument,
You think you’re winning by trying to elevate your position
By pompously pretending to agree. But what you are doing
Just shows you can’t be reasoned with,
That you just don’t want to listen,
But all you have to do is look,
Can you just poop in the toilet please?”
Documentations shatter previously held beliefs.
He’s apologetic, but fate has the situation escalating,
She escapes, while laying stiffly in bed, the neighbors complain,
While they continue flinging each other’s belongings
While airing their dirty laundry.
While she thinks about how she might be unable
To make her promise a reality.
“Shut the fuck up,
The neighbors went as far as to ring the door bell
But you guys are fucking arguing still.
Sleeping realities are swept underneath
Torn up beds of forgoed meetings
In the severity of apparition’s appearances.
Just another stranger’s glance,
Happenstances of planted friendships
Casting away flourishing romances by fate’s
Reckoning by it’s unduly deck hands,
Within repugnant scenes where
They would have been unseen.
The man of nonexistential seasoned love
Tossed away by the sides of the unwanted
Where they questioned
Their loves and tangibilities.
Austerely bare, we’d lay
In wait, fingers barely brushing
Our creator’s extended hand.
Oh, how we’d struggle to
Even breathe these words
Into parses of acceptable
Offerings, humbly knelt
In your reassembly
In the unmistakable likeness
Of a master sculptor,
Unworthy of your life
In which earthen world could
Our words ever hope to reach
Your indescribable coalition
Amassed in the gravity
Of our time and space, tossed
Into the ever deepening divide
Antagonizing our senseless lives
In each searing word, lit as fuck.
In the truest time we’d abide,
As these hieroglyphic pleas,
Only by the skins
Of our teeth,
Were then nipped
At budded ends;
Each and every
Eye opened birth portending
In our stories retold
In poinsettia forms.
Kinetics, nominated, would activate
Nomenclatures that’d retaliate against
Grains of berating sand figures.
Hazels inside hexagonal shapes
Tread on pent up fates,
Effacing bescorched shells which
Elicited swells of starfish escapes.
So she’d move.
They’d get married
They’d get bored,
Seek other outlets,
They’d focus on the negatives
While they’d have screaming matches,
Then those images
They had promised.
He makes empty promises
While his words
Wile away and say differently.
He believed that he’d give up anything
For love; almost anything.
Then, as fate would have it,
The day came
When he’d have to face
His true reality.
That day, he threw away
What he swore he’d cherish
Beneath the sycamore tree.
That was the day I threw away
Those fuzzy things called love
To preserve myself.
How I can be; I know,
She roams through deserted streets, on the lookout for raw materials.
Stumbling upon glimmering bodies of water, she
Stopped to read tomes of artifices written by a mystic,
While she wore her shit smeared spectacles.
Reciting a paragraph, she indirectly opened a dimension beneath her.
Perhaps ‘twas fortune a girl erred dictation,
For had she breathed
The full breadth of passage,
Surely she’d have been stationed
Much deeper in the mystique.
Showy words claiming, “all that glitters is gold.” Actionable
Constructs of clamoring souls lie posed in consequential remedies,
Reliving the reciprocal standard tedium of incessant forgetteries.
Undecided lambent threads
Of golden silvers
Amongst parceled bubbles
Intertwine then unwind
Inside gifs where
Illuminations cease to exist.
Incited by ineffable sparks
Inside ignition pries
Arising from distances;
Edged natures pinned
Against condemned trysts
Of prioritized grims.
Indiscreet wonders left
At dead ends
In order to feel less.
Measured, counted, timed,
Noisily direct static arrays.
Love’s idiosyncrasies: a gain.
Happenstances of ill-fates;
Late teal falls, lifted
From the ill conceived
For the sake of fantasies.
Within the depths,
Standing in their place.
