79 (who?)
and here I am, reinterpreting the definable universe
in relation to you, the poet, and the gravitation
of your hips (the parentheticals of your sighs, the longing
in your star-ward cries, the vespertine scent lingering
on your weary skin).

I would love every piece of you. I would stay up too long
and watch the night crumble away, to whisper together
the scraps of your misdirected sanity.  I would call you perfect
when it wasn’t true, and become the answer
you spent an entire existence
suffering for.

You owe me this, sugartongue; the sweet silence
of your teeth. [this story is like a million others
rejected before it, glorifying earthbound angels:

please]rewrite the world for me.
I love you

Lou is bugged and shot up with drugs, he sweats this bird he hardly knows
All that he wants is to see someone he respects without their clothes
So like some hybrid mother slash lover she’d soothe and heal his wounds;
Kiss those dying ears so softly that the reaper stops to swoon

i sure write a lot of romance poetry lately, all things considered

Every time I read your poetry I just melt, woes and worries dissolve (at least for one brief moment), and I can just put myself into the moment of imagination given wings by your magnificent poetry.

This is gorgeous

I adore your work, that means the world to me, thank you :heart:

This is amazing and brilliant.

I think it's writing like this that reminds me why ~oracle-of-nonsense and I wrote our poem about kissing another poet.  Poets seem to be the only ones who understand the totality of romance.

Our poem:

This is just wonderful.

that poem's absolutely lovely :heart: and thank you so much, I know what you mean. We do have the unique ability to articulate the unimaginable.

It's funny, isn't it?  It almost makes you wonder how non-poets articulate romance in their minds, eh?

(and thanks for the fave)

That sticks in my head the most for some reason. 

Great stuff, but the last line has a square bracket in between "please" and "rewrite".
intricately-ordinary Featured By Owner Sep 21, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
thank you very much! and yes, I'm aware, I added that to finish the bracket I'd started in the stanza prior to it.
