Literature
Death II
Tightening
heart constricting
Every time I look at you
the heart dies
a little more
The same, it lives
breathes a lusty breath
pulse quickening
Crimson
red
the heart implodes
My weakness
my devil
I find in you
You are the life,
and the death
of me.

Literature
Tourniquet
Tourniquet
Binding
Pushes the blood
Pulses
Constrains
I cannot breathe
I cannot move
A prisoner
Contained
Suffocating
Alive
The darkness surrounds
Breathing shallow
Fading fast
I strangle
I struggle
Fall into blackness
I am no more.

Literature
Yearning
A touch
Your scent
It stings
It kills
I wait
The night, so dark
I feel the cold
Penetrates
Deep
To the marrow
Chilling, devastating
Until I see your face
I weep
Alone
In need
I bleed
Waiting for the day
To be with you again.

Literature
Death
The darkness
swells
Swallows whole
The light
pale
that fades
Screaming
no sound
dry
blood drying, curdling
the Life that fades
slips away
in the cold
Fall into the abyss.

Literature
Lost
Your kiss
I remember
Longing
Waiting
A touch that will never come
Again.
My breath you will never steal
Again.
Loneliness
Emptiness
Brief and destructive
But would never destroy me
The loss that has been suffered
Is yours
Not mine
Like the rock against the surf
I am strong
Steady
Unwavering
I will not topple
Even after the longing
After the solitude
I am still standing.
I am lost, but only briefly.

Literature
Flesh
My flesh
it burns
Intoxicated
I scream your name.
My blood it cries
it sings
it weeps
Still I seep
into blackness and wait.
Silence
it stifles
Aloneness
I crave
Between the hours
of twilight and dawn.
Still I long to touch
A kiss
I desire
sweating soreness
Exhaustion
I love.

From the Edge of the Deep Green Sea by retrolover From the Edge of the Deep Green Sea :iconretrolover:retrolover 1 0
Literature
Naked
Nakedness
Scars that I bear
Glaring white against darkened skin
Traces of horrors from memories passed
I stand before you
pale in the moonlight
Will you reject me?
Leave me in the cold
I'm not
What you thought I should be
I am not
Who you thought
You should be with
Stare at me
with questioning eyes
As I stand bare before you
waiting
with an answer in mine.

Wow. There is just...no time.  Last time I was on here was almost a year ago. So much has happened and there has been little to no time to do anything outside of work.

So, here it is...

I most likely will not be back for a long time. I'm just too busy.  I may periodically update and post some stuff over time, but not too likely.  Looking back through all of my journal entries and activity for the last year there have been almost no comments from other users.  Understandable, since users are looking to other art sites to showcase their work.  So, maybe I will do the same.

Thanks all for your patience and understanding.

Ciao!
