*Death and the Maiden* #poetry


His mahogany voice

Full of whiskey
Whispered promises
Of nebulous deeds
Star shattered feelings
In the obscure part
Of my opaque spirit
Revelry ruptures my placid Hart
Benevolence flees my body
In search of pleasurable pain
To alleviate the empty space
Left in my dying imagination
Oh how sweet the memory
Of sublime creation
My milky way of artistry
Leaves me with tears of starlight
Filling the river Styx


On my deathbed
His whispers
Destroy and rebuild me
Fortifying my eternal devotion
To his purpose
To his very essence
The other half of my soul
