You make sense

Only through emissary

Palate-pressed

I await your secrets

Held adrift

I wrestle the tides

Of your betraying eyes

*

Why do your lips

Incline so steeply

When you deceive

Why does your tongue

Taste so sweet

Unlacing my dreams?

*

I imposed a future

On a soul departed

On the trappings

Of an animal insanity

Am I broken

For loving the wrong men?

Or am I just too naive

To see the jest?

*

You predate origin

An unspent coin

An idyllic ride

On black water

An angel whose

Unwashed cloak

Obscures all

*

The road is too long

To travel friendless

When you’re gone

Who am I suppose to be?

Every word defines you

But only vowels

Hold true to me

*

Should I weep until

A desert?

Fissured and forlorn

Is my heart

Unworthy of declaration

Am I destined

Only, to be scorned

=

I was listening to beautiful but very sad music
