Uriah Hamilton


Dark Girl - Poem by Uriah Hamilton

One day,
Dogs will laugh
In the streets,
And we’ll kiss wildly
Like lunatics
Escaping the asylum.

You’re a dark girl
So I’m painting
My roses black,

And I’ll murder the sun
If he ever turns his back.

I would rather
Enter the palace of your pain
Than continue to exist
In the prison cell of my loneliness.

    What the hell, Uriah? I go away for a few days, come back, and find you wrote a storm of firey passion and a sea of cold beauty. What the hell? ! Absolutely amazing work, pure you, of course. (Report)Reply

    insight
    into self
    the other
    and the monumental necessity
    of the heart
    for closeness
    that great declaration
    creating poetry
    of the utmost honesty
    and beauty.
