They murder with a kiss.

DEEP WATERS, LUCY, DEEP WATERS!

Written for the Weekly Terrible Poetry Contest #61


Our lightless fire
This love is fair with keen appetite
Acidification
Our magical hyperbole
We avoid and clean in the scullery
Of faint stale smells of beer
Sanctified by an ancient skull
Seized, penetrated by anguish
Fever of the jaguar
In its charm,
Possessed much, blood-faced
Fairer than myself,
No wonder on the summer’s day
Plucked in each verse, red for shame,
Desire is cold, bridled by Webster’s obsession with death
With a text that clutches and folds,
Anguish, anguish in the flesh
For I am myself here in the flesh
(And not hemorrhoids).
To stroke on one’s cheek,
As I on the opposite shore will be
Devoured by heavenly distilling flowers,
Tangled in pale delight
Like crimson shame, Et tu Brute?
Our roads diverged for better ones
Than ourselves because it would never make a difference
Existing letting this dream begin,

    Very nice work Lucy, resonates with me your writing. Simple your art, yet you make the complicated make it sound- read simple and that I do enjoy. At least no fancy words that I have to go to the dictionary every moment, and I believe that is a true art, also the theme…. Just a nice read overall, thank you.
