Avenue of my body!


You pick up your brush
since gave up his words
and draws a line
and says that I am

I'm a bit more than that
2 dashes already enough

I take your hands
and gently paint some words
you no longer understands
then I paint my picture

I'm a bit more than that
2 dashes not enough

then, by drawing on me
which carbon paper
to see if you remember
Who I Am

I'm a bit more than that
a silhouette is not enough

A ghost you say
want something more solid?
open your hands
black ink seeping through his fingers

I'm a bit more than that
invisible ink and so thin

Black and white
really try scribble my Body
So I am
The pale line again

    These things you say of beauty
    In truth it's spoke not of her
    but of needs unsalted,

    Beauty is not a need
    But an ecstasy
    A thirsting however quenched

    Pale lines drawn dark
    Dark line fading to pale
    Speak not the image

    That image can often lie
    Think more of the being with-in
    Her heart, her soul is more than the whole

    In case you didn't know when you write inspirational words I get inspired... hope you do not mind (Report) Reply

    So hauntingly beautiful, Images that cannot be simpler I am unable to grasp.
    Meanings that are as easily to see as fog, but impossible to touch.
    Leaves me in awe. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Ambrose Bierce

Weather
by Ambrose Bierce

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,
