Letting Go :iconasunder:asunder 179 26
Platonic Empathy
I would crawl into the arch of your skeletal frame;
And curl myself up in voiceless supplication,
Cradled in the hollow cavity of your ribcage,
Patiently longing to come to your attention,
Within the concave alcove carved by neglect.
I would linger in your indifferent embrace;
And lay myself down in front of your heart,
Before that impassive monument to care,
Consciously heedless to your apathetic disinterest,
Guardian of the rhythmic, sustaining beat.
I would stay despite the weighted darkness;
Hold myself steadfast through your despair,
Dedicated in my self-imposed consignation,
Faithful to the hope you have forgotten,
Remaining an inchoate sentinel - inertia in vain.
In transient dreams I am enfolded in angular fragility,
I feel newborn and vulnerable, in embryonic curvature,
Unconscionably comforted by impassive limbs, yet
Tenderly protective, excessively aware of your mortal frailty,
Proof there is gentleness in our brittle sanctuary.

my daylight sleeps
when your away
my daylight sleeps
but when your near
it sears through my veins
i mean you no harm
i just want to hold you close
you whisper under my skin
nestling in the undergrowth
biting back the bounderies
kissing all the bruises
when your away
my daylight sleeps
the candles burn slow
but smell of gentle wishes
torturing me, playfully
in a bed, in a dream
i mean you no harm
i just want to hold you close
shivering in the sun
my daylight sleeps
but sunset brings you calling
and i know you'll make me glow
i mean you no harm
i just want to hold you close

she haunts me
when i hold her in my dreams
she crys
when i close my mind, her halo
blinds me
her eyes filled with white roses
wither down with lost faith
as i breathe
my lips crack with dust
as i walk
through the streets filled with fools
she haunts me
hesitating once more
i pray
i can't lie
as she hits me
as she spits
as she hurls
as she looks me straight in the eye
and declares herself the queen
i can't lie
she haunts me
:iconcamerongreer:camerongreer 1 3
today i woke up sucking my thumb
got up, got dressed
the mundane routine
stumble out to the street again
strangers eagerly waltzing by me
grey, everything is grey
the clouds look dark and heavy
like they want to rain but can't
they speak to me
but no one understands
they sing to me
like a small town church choir
they tell me of their hopes and dreams
one wants to be our own messiah
they tell me everything
but people don't understand
the clouds tell me they want lightning
to release them, jolt them into life
i offer to be their antenna
push my arms up to the sky
i tense up for the bolt
but it never comes
the clouds still talk to me
but not like it was before
i hope they get their lightning
they don't sing anymore
they still talk
they tell me they want lightning
grey, everything is grey

August 9th 2009
I hear the rain more than see it on the pane; I feel the un-rhythm crashing through the still air, cleansing away the dust and murk or an oppressive day. I allow the thought to become impulse as I cram my feet ungracefully into boots too big for my legs. I am dressed in shapeless fabric; it hangs from my frame disguising what I do not want to see.
I do not remember descending the stairs. By the time I leave the door I am almost running to catch the storm before it passes. I disregard the slam of the front door. I am too far away, in every sense, to be considerate today. There is only my Self.
I am two streets away and already soaked to the skin, though not yet the bone. They water drags a darker hue from the depths of a T-shirt that does not belong to me. My throat is still raw from my compensation, from my mistakes. The rain will not wash that from me, but it symbolises a beginning. I will be fresh, clean, flawless...or so I believe.
By now every item of clothing I wear is three shade

Someone sent me a request to feature you in #WeFeatureYou. Interesting, after arbaxa, I changed my screen name to Naerdiel, which is close to your name. LOVE IT! <3 Elvish.

Anyway, I would like to coordinate with you about this. I'll send you a note after getting things sorted out. :)
