Love's Plot: Part One

If one were to call,
'Pon my silky name,
Let it be heard,
That my intentions were,
Simple yet they find me so complicated,
Why refuse to simplify life though?
To them,
The black oil of my breath,
Is ever collecting,
Ever ever ever,
Spilling delicately,
As chocolate only could,
Hot as fire yet icy claws dig their hearts,
Fill their lungs with liquid smoke
Drowning they are,
Refuse to take a breath of air,
Whilst they never saw,
My smirking brow at their oblivion,
Hands around each lover yearn,
The intoxication,
So much like the sweet taste,
Of their salty skin,
And I watch while they fall,
Into each other's eyes,
Into a world where Romeo and Juliet,
Have never existed to be kept in silence,
Where the bars of life and reality,
Never stripe their vision
Or the chains of discrimination and yet truth,
Cut into their wrists,
While shamelessly I,
With steady claws,
Tear their eyes,
And laugh at their ignorance.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
