51 (who?)
I wrote you a poem.

skeleton smile-- moonbeams
drip from your unharnessed
habilitations; you speak and
ravens tear through your throat
(I will be there) you are
a catalyst whose ghost eyes
died for a better day

unaware promise bearer, take
me away. as you live these
beautiful vanities, take me

somewhere refined and romantic
like the lies you languish, where
a heavy heart weighs up to
something nice

primed and pruned, I am
a seedling: an exaltation to
all that is you

we both cry the same kind
of quiet, and whisper the same brand
of please-don’t-listen-close; I
just want to leave before I break
when you [do it first] decide there is
a life worth more than the scars
I bear (though I mostly want to ask

does it ever go away?)

churning repetitions of an
unmentioned time, I carry you
within my mouth; tucked away and
slowly disintegrating the things
I barely speak:

(you saw more of me than either of us
could admit) the time for letting go
has passed me by
Each section is something I'll never be able to tell someone in my life.

I may do this again. It was passive aggressive therapeutic.

O beautiful obscurity
However deep you speak to me
I cannot fathom your abyss
Of radiant permissiveness 

I love this

ASDJKLFHJL I never commented on your work before because I fear I'm too stupid to say something as meaningful as all the others who comment, and I'll sadly admit that half the time I don't entirely understand all the vocabulary (LOL I sound stupid). But, I do read all your work that you've posted ever since I watched you on dA and I felt the need to say that I LOVEEE THIS. SO MUCH. :heart:
