The Adventure of Dreamy Eyes


Dreamy eyes
Looking away with such guile
Sparkles within a beauty's grace
Visionary paradise powerfully enhanced
Peeking, Peaking through gray clouds, turning blue

And what is lurking around ever so belligerently?
Neanderthal ambitions stalking natural temptations
Tainting a sacred admiration
Plaguing a mind once full of golden promises
Dragging it into the sullen point of no return

Dreamy eyes now dimmed
The nightmare begins
Darkness's corruption over the horizon
Weaving it's arachnid disease
Eating away the confidence of it's prey
Till the fodder is trained to fall,
Into the lair of a venomous denial…

There is no grave that shall allow this kind of despicable death
As the living should never fall this far from grace, Ever again

Eyes now white
No other color in sight
Emotionally destroyed….

Drained of all the confidence
That she once had soaring way, way
Over the inflation of her former gigantic sized head

Misery lives on
Deep inside the flames of self torment
Where only red and black are seen….

The very fire she naively lets burn
In the pit of her own self loathing
Unbeknownst to the world,
Who once thought she lived higher than the sky itself

Did you want happily ever after?
End your superficial ways
The grave is always open
To those who die living in vain


So what is next?

If only love was never corrupted into a gimmick

If there had to be a choice
I would choose loneliness
Rather than write with invisible aspirations
Traveling somewhere that is called nowhere
While dreams are being held hostage by the one who rents flesh
The one who always strives on desecrating the graves,
Of what was dead even before
Any greedy eyes ever bestowed in all foreseeable dooming

Choking on arrogant notions
The essence of what was once called love

Tell me
Who does beauty live for?

Dreamy eyes,
Even now in this tribulation,
I still to this day, believe in you

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Your hands lie open in the long fresh grass, --
The finger-points look through like rosy blooms:
Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
