Solstice-

Her eyes are filled with autumn.
Behind sepia glaze hang empty branches
amidst a barren field.
Dense fog shrouds an empty tree while
soliloquizing about comforting falling branches
in their final, fleeting moments.

Her lips are filled with autumn.
The last lies from the mockingbirds
spiral from them; heading south toward
warmer beaches and happier times.
Deserting the lips to chap in the
bitter climate to come.

Her heart is filled with autumn.
Crimson warmth of summers past
transforms into neutrality,
into grey.
The bitter taste of lukewarm decisions
trapped inside her breast.

She's alone, void, dormant.
Today she'll die to prepare for
the harsh weather to come, taking
solace in life's seasons and the ideal
that just one solstice from now,
she'll bloom.




Sacrifices

Glass tears cut their way through
soft flesh and shatter on the cooling coals
of what used to be a warming home

No comforting hug could ease my heart
as the only surviving remains are sheltered
by the memories of family and loved ones
but those memories provide no shelter for me

A fist smashing into the ashes as anger
finally takes control and curses contort my tongue
"Why me," I say over and over again, as my arms
grow weary and begin to buckle after each swing
So I lay in the smoldering embers of what my past has now become...
and weep

The warm sensation on my back eases my pain
and forced chuckling interrupts the tender silence
when remembering that the mortgage was just paid off

The smell of burning flesh fumed into my nose
and the comfortable warm sensation
quickly became a hot incineration
but I just lie there, watching myself fly away
piece by piece
Vivamus mea Lesbia, atque amemus,
rumoresque senum seueriorum
omnes unius aestimemus assis!

In all honesty, I thought your piece would be pwning mine
Vivamus mea Lesbia, atque amemus,
rumoresque senum seueriorum
omnes unius aestimemus assis!

I preferred orange, though blue had one bit I really loved
'soft flesh and shatter on the cooling coals
of what used to be a warming home'
the flow of those two lines, separate from the rest of the piece, would be how I'd love to see the rest of it.
There's only one thing we can do to thwart the plot of these albino shape-shifting lizard BITCHES!
