turning


turning

my bloodied spit

the raped sky

decibel of tears

of remembrance


bittersweet


this charnel house burning

dense sky unlimbered

echoing laughter

my pulse


the ripped tide of the dark

the avaricious calm retraced


burnt cloud

the sky falling


shadow endless

bitter flesh upon fleshed lies


the night's laughter


incarcerated the longing

in a superfluous light

my fingers burn at the touch

shadow of all things permanent

an embraced eyelid

tears of blood the nectar

burning my heart to an

ashen white

the scars trace the nights laughter
