Poetry's Silhouette


See she wrote words that casted shadows
her metaphors hid in the darkness
her emotions were screaming to be seen
but blindness has befallen the earth

See she is a dying art

She saves her heart
for fading poets
whose lyrical devotion
never comes to fruition

Has the 21st century
ushered in a new age of darkness
without poetic genius
to light the way

See she came to me
like a ray of lusty light
see while I sun bathed
in the reflection
of unique sorrows
the perfect heartache
I opened the vulnerability
of her Core

Where the Sea
drew me far into
mindless evaporation
through the saltine sensation
of her romantic symmetries

Swooning tactical trickery
loosing the battle for her words
its not fair I have to share her
I became greedy as I lusted sinfully

Penning promptly pushing away
within Heavenly bubbles
formed with sexy syllables
and the eminence need to create

Life's survival packs

See she stacked words abundantly
upon the back of my endurance
leaving loneliness at bay

See she sweetly
whispers words
flowing into my soul

See she blew into
the depths of my mind
brushing past
the notion of time
engraving a design
within the horizon
of my heart

See she loves me
to my last heartbeat
for she resurrects me in
the midst of dying
of falling apart
at the seams

See she was an illusion
no more than the conjuring
of creative thought

See she was very easy to find
if her presence was ever truly sought

See I saw her words
leave her sultry mouth
slip to the paper
they crawl up my thighs

Climbing deep inside
to enter hidden chambers
to rescue a yearning
burden from my patience

See her fingers stuffed in my mouth
they taste like metaphor meter and rhyme

I could hear the tone
within each line as she spoke
the sound creating touches
capturing me behind each shutter

Because she exemplified my existence

See she is poetry
thus I let her explore
the inner and outer contours
of my womanly core

We are so sickly collaborated
we seem like one mind

See she is poetry an eternal entity

Creature of poetic folklore
forcing hands upon command
like a mastermind architect

See shes trying to resist the imaginative urge
tearing at her constructive appetite

See she lives in a ink kingdom
where syllables smolder
surrounded by fluid-flow-filled
rivers of indigo ink

Beautiful
epitome
of a woman
see her words
plead me to pluck
each manipulated moan
with my fingertips

See shes structured
into my screams

My poetry canal
of vesper-ed vintage
bottoming out burdens
and burying bliss beneath bliss

See she created every syllable
I watched her lips form words
and I was mesmerized
by every flow she uttered

See her metaphorical lips
kiss me long and soft
giving me pleasure

Intensities that fathoms above

See we accelerated
the speed of earth's rotation
when we become one

See when poetry kissed me
our flow shifted the axis of the planet

My creative habits
slap bitches back
to the middle ages

See these people
will never understand
the purpose of verses

We poets live on another level
we ascend the atmosphere

For I saw her as clear
as imagery could convey

While she became words
that I wished to retain
for she was my own
reflection of poetry
soulfully transferring
passionate vocabulary

Alloying me present Star
like pornography
to the masses

As I Hit
G Spot
Erotics
I have
sexes
salaciously
starving

S ee she gives me orgasmic flashes
for the climax of her colorful beauty

See she does this by simply being

See she loves me
to my last heartbeat
for she resurrects me in
the midst of dying
of falling apart
at the seams

But the sound fell deaf
upon the ears of metaphor
as I tried to whore myself
towards the truth of poetry

See she was an illusion
no more than the conjuring
of creative thought

See she was
very easy
to find
if her
presence
was ever
truly
sought

SEE
Do You See
Open Your Heart
Let Poetry
IN

I give her
Lyrical devotion

Poet's Notes about The Poem

vesper-ed: evening star a planet (usually Venus) seen at sunset in the western sky

Oddly enough this was inspired by one word 'Silhouette' I heard it in a song by Eminem I was just listening to my ipod on the way back home from a long trip Thank God I always carry notebook and pen you just never know when poetry will grab on to you
