Fire Starter

Do you know me?

Did you clean the blood

From your daughters mouth?

So much…

Did you cover your ears

While her mother coughed

Until…

She couldn’t?

Where were you? when

The very money

We treated like a green god

turned into a diseased devil

Now only black death lingers

The air still tainted with its

Infectious scent

 

Did you watch people

Yes people…

Tear eachother to pieces

Over a gallon of water

Until the bottle was covered

In bloody hand prints?

Or when the Cleaners burned

Everything…

Except me

They showed me

the beauty within the Flame

From the fire

Purity is born

You call my brothers

Enemy…

but this is our home

You dont belong here

This is our city…

We decide what remains

And

What Burns…

My Black thoughts
Drifting Aimless
In the weightless purity,
of your matter.

There is no name
For the God who created you…
Its as if,
A perfect flower
Bloomed into my existence

From the Hands
Of nothingness…
I was given
Everything.

My words
can give no weight,
to your Flawless
Image.

Your energy
so Vibrant…
That the light
of your smile
Purifies my darkness.

Your love
Is not religion,
And yet…
It is in your love
I put my faith.

I know 
You are breaking.
Like a fool
I catch 
The jagged 
falling pieces.

My
Bloodied hands
saving 
Every shard…
Secretly
Hoping 
to 
Put you back 
Together.

Shattered
I re-build you
From memory. 
Through my 
Words 
You 
Still exist…

The need
To see your face
Just,
One more time…
Is the reason
I sit here destroying
blank pages.

Trying 
Desperately 
To
Reassemble 
your
living, 
puzzle pieces.

Missing Link

I saw the future…
It was raining blood
My feet are still wet.
I retrace red foot prints
Back to the wall
I stepped out from.

I watched
Purple skies burn
While fiery fingers
Fucked the clouds
Until
Orgasmic lightning
Effloresced
Through the atmosphere.

I inhaled
Weighted breaths,
The heavy air sits
Like metal in my lungs.
bystanders
Watch from
Custom made fish bowls
Placing bets on my
Existence.

There is nothing green…
The landscape
is a stranger
Draped
In stainless steel,
Feasting
On the remnants of humanity.

Flying lights
Pretend to be
Birds…
Their songs
Replaced with
Mechanical clicks
As the new skyline hums
With information.

I saw the future…
But…
We were not there.

Searching for Venus

My heart beats
In reverse…
Mimicking your
Retrograde
Rotations.

Your beautiful image
Seared
Into
my inner mind.

Your pattern…
Blueprints
For
Perfection,
As if shaped
For me.

You sit
out of reach,
My elusive emerald
Floating in a sea of
Endless ebony.

My eyes
Flood with stars as
I watch the sky
For remnants
Of your love spell.
