    Splattered birds,
    Timeless,
    Enter their gateways.

    Profoundly,
    I must say,
    It never fades.

    mind undone
    reason mauled
    adrift, apart

    blood,
    hot coffee, and hard water.
    "real
    loneliness
    is not
    necessarily
    limited to
    when
    you are
    alone
    "
    -C. Bukowski

    Walk, run, jump.
    Fly, land, thump.
    For I have known them all already, known them all:
    Have known the evenings, mornings, afternoons,
    I have measured out my life with coffee spoons;
    I know the voices dying with a dying fall
    Beneath the music from a farther room.

    So how should I presume?
    Eliot

    Reality-
    slides through
    glassy fingertips
    unapologetic.

    Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before. ~ Edgar Allan Poe

    "Bird of Paradise": a quick love poem [a parody]

    Desperately he tread
    Heels over head
    Last edited by tailor STATELY; 02-17-2010 at 09:06 AM. Reason: change word 'quick' for 'short' for parody's sake

    who am I but a stitch in time
    what if I were to bare my soul
    would you see me origami

    The Moments of Dominion
    That happen on the Soul
    And leave it with a Discontent
    Too exquisite — to tell —
