love had never seemed so immortal

Food had never seemed better than it did today; when I
was profusely famished to the last core of my
bedraggled intestines; frantically dithering in
dungeons of bizarre starvation,
The valley had never seemed so mesmerizing than it did
today; when I found every cranny of my devastatingly
monotonous countenance; wholeheartedly breaking free;
from chains of tyrannical deprivation,
Sleep had never seemed so grandiloquent than it did
today; when I was indefatigably exhausted to the last
bone of my treacherously withering spine; and every
beleaguered bone of my body; intransigently refused to
go even a step further,
Poetry had never seemed so sparkling than it did
today; when I uninhibitedly unveiled the disastrously
manipulative arenas of my commercially stringent
brain; into a fathomless world of fantasy and
tantalizingly never-ending desire,
Fur had never seemed so compassionate than it did
today; when I uncontrollably trembled in the desolate
chill; with nothing but ungainly solitariness;
camouflaging me insidiously from all sides,
Roses had never seemed so exotic than they did today;
when I pathetically staggered on every step I
alighted; insurmountably asphyxiated by the winds of
bizarre bloodshed and satanically vicious lechery,
Tears had never seemed so heartwarming than they did
today; when I witnessed my long lost mate in robustly
blissful form and resplendently bouncing; after
centuries immemorial,
Artistry had never seemed so exquisite than it did
today; when I frolicked in the garden of voluptuous
enchantment; far away and wholesomely oblivious to the
parasitic vagaries; of this blood sucking planet,
The ocean had never seemed so reinvigorating than it
did today; when I voraciously blended each pore of my
disdainfully squalid body with the tangy waves; after
almost a decade of rotting in the viciously
dilapidated gutters,
Speed had never seemed so exhilarating than it did
today; when I reached the dwelling of my perniciously
extinguishing kin; just flash seconds before they
could bid a royal adieu; to the overwhelming mysticism
of this perpetual earth,
Light had never seemed so Omnipotent than it did
today; when I despondently transgressed through a
tunnel of gruesome blackness; with the lids of my eyes
savagely sealed by chains of dolorous prejudice,
The pen had never seemed so priceless than it did
today; when I churned an unfathomable epic of poignant
emotions with its embellished nib; candidly baring out
the inner most recesses of my aimlessly loitering
Smiles had never seemed so gratifying than they did
today; when I felt gorily constipated in a web of
blatantly hideous lies; burying my face deep down in
dust; to chat with the remorsefully diminutive worms
in black soil, '
Rainbows had never seemed so vivacious than they did
today; when I venomously stagnated in the aisles of
insatiably penalizing depression; counting the last
days of my life even in the absolute prime of;
scintillating nubile youth,
Whistles had never seemed so replenishing than they
did today; when I frenziedly groped for the right
direction; wholesomely lost amidst the terrorizing
maze of; stoically impersonal space age robots,
Mirrors had never seemed so congenial than they did
today; when I ardently waited for an invincibly
philanthropic friend to lean upon; amusing my
impoverished senses with my very own minuscule
reflection; for infinite more births of mine yet to
come, '
Butterflies had never seemed so frolicking than they
did today; when I lay penuriously maimed in corridors
of devilishly lambasting hell; irrevocably entrenched
by a wall of invidious nothingness,
Breath had never seemed so Omnipotent than it did
today; when I was miserably slithering on the ground
without the most infinitesimal trace of heavenly air;
about to completely abnegate my senses forever; to
disappear into non-existent wisps of tragic oblivion,
And love had never seemed so immortal than it did
today; when my heart was tumultuously throbbing for
the girl whom I had perennially desired; the soul mate
for which each beat intensely flaming in my chest;
could die this very instant for.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
