Cling

I owe you everything including the world
My muse, reason, goddess. My skin and scar
Show the view behind goggles, infatuation tint
Everything is pink through your eyes
To me, they’re all gray with no feature
Distortion without interruption or force
Television snow flickering on a bad porno
Static moans with no climax in sight
This is worthless and nihilistic
Like a guardian angel in peaceful moments
My phone replaced with your poem
Badly worded, littered with false emotion
The moon gets ugly when it’s all we see
The sun gets cold when it’s all we feel
I’m so sick of seeing your face when I dream
Stuck to me, my magnet of feces and shrills
The reason it’s better to just be alone sometimes

    ..oooooohhhhhhhh boy, I like that.
    Reminds me of Ghandi when he said it’s not a vow of silence if you’re alone.

    I can see the deflated angel.
    awesome write

  2. oh wow. this is love at its best (and worst, of course)

    “The moon gets ugly when it’s all we see
    The sun gets cold when it’s all we feel”

  3. Just read this at your site. Gorgeous writing.

  4. Excellent poem. The way the meter lengthens as the narrator changes his views from opening to closing. One thing I would like to see more of in the poem is sticking with your thematic use of color. You kept it up for the first 5 lines then dropped it. I think it would make the poem much stronger and more intense if you stayed with color as a metaphor for feeling (old n’ tired, I know, but it works so damn well!) At any rate, very good read, will check into your other poems and give ’em a read. Take it easy,
