To my other half

i have swallowed the stars
in my tropical mouths of nostalgia,
coping the insanity, wireless tracks
with sweat and ink
ink and tears.
a blush of my cheeks
and seizure occurs
between our wild sheets
our vermilion warmth.

i sniff the old papers
to give me paper cuts,
threading a crisp jawline
point of felicity
& elision of this
moon dust heart,
i walk spherical
fetching your wet lips
wet mouth and language of Gods
i pronounce you my dalliance
& my nails clutter
in your toxin scent.

  1. Cluttering of nails, walking spherically, paper cuts being threaded, swallowing stars, coping with everything dear to you, blush and seizures!! Woww, such vivid imagination and then this brilliant exposition of your abstract writing!! This is the language of God, the language of your valiant soul!!

  2. Whoa, beautifully put.

    How do you come about these poems? It feels like you write it with so easy, while I struggle to put one sentence down properly without grammatical mistakes or typos. -_-

  3. This is stunning and how lucky your other half is to be on the receiving end of such stupendous poetry. I love your use of language but the word elision is formidable here because not only does it fit the image you create but your writing in general – I’ve never seen anyone blend abstract thoughts and images together like you do. They are always seamless and a pure joy to read. I must admit that each time I read one of your pieces, I am back in some college poetry class and the professor has just asked us to analyse the poem. Bravo!
