Random Poem:

"...well, not really."
DeformedLion

i was drunk, on the yesterday lines,
 1
arriving like ants to carry storm
 2
clouds. their slow ranks forming,
 3
assembling, disassembling with
 4
the clarity of the death-bound.
 5
 
 
the lines- the hearts formed
 6
out of them like paper machete,
 7
wrangled symbols, sighs and
 8
whispers...
 9
 
 
"i have never loved anyone quite
 10
like you..."
 11
 
 
song-sung-singing rose petals
 12
trance formed vows and throes
 13
of heart dance, rapturous;
 14
orgasmic-
 15
my tongue roped into blistered
 16
noose. slick felt sweat, hair
 17
matted to skull as skin
 18
slips into a puddle
 19
on grainy altar.  
 20
 
 
and so, so dull!
 21
bored out of my mind, i fashion
 22
little scenes for artifice,
 23
for effect of creation
 24
and watch as the world beneath
 25
me quakes, its
 26
swollen brain
 27
swarmed with the pestilence
 28
of laughter.
