Red Desert

Source



Boundless reaches
of glass glazed reflection
upon melted beaches;
a blazing inception

I witnessed a supernova
incinerating the night sky

I felt the universe shiver,
like December's cold wind

Not a remnant of terror
could be found in my mind

Not an inkling of shock,
or of fear, or surprise




~~~~~~




I send you waves,
beginning somewhere below,
flowing toward the North Star,
finding an escape from your mouth

Out of all the galaxies,
you shine the brightest,
fascination surrounds you,
and so I appease you

retire every inhibition
that could keep me from you



~~~~~~

Huge!!! That's all I can say right now. There is a hell of a lot to read and assimilate in here, Ben.

Let me just say, at this stage that I LOVE: "I vowed not to pray

I prayed not to swear

I swore not to promise

and I broke every one"

XLN (Excellent)

It's like melting into the universe, becoming one with it!

oh pish posh. haha i sound like an old lady when i say things like that. but lots of things matter. you just have to find whats still important to you. and i dont mean some girl. dont let some girl make that much of a difference on you. especially one thats not worth it. this too shall pass.

I like those, Nikki, but I think I just figured no title would really fit all the poems, plus I didn't feel like thinking of one. Truth is, I don't really feel like any of it matters anymore

You could title it something like the ingredients of a black hole/supernova. Or supernova of the mind/mindless void. Mindless supernova? Whatever you call it, thumbs up.
