Photo Challenge #59, Shadow, May 05, 2015 and Wordle 195

Shadow Manoevil

Manoevil

When does ennui capitulate to the senses?

Your inky silhouette breathes in me,

A mesh of butterflies blacklisted,

Heart prepared as a cigarette,

More debris than clinical substance

I watch you roll away again and again.

The wall cradling your patient limbs

May as well be wedged between us.

Your methodical kiss

Smells of condemnation.

A soul rendered inert

In the idolization of a single channel.

A bookend pressing your angles close,

I will never have the strength

To include you in everything that I am.

The unwashed, unsaleable suicide,

Your shrunken frame has only organs left to lose.

I fall away, flailing in hopes of generating

A farce of warmth no longer inherent within.

  1. Stunning images conveyed through the words – well suited to the image.

    When does ennui capitulate to the senses? / Your inky silhouette breathes in me, / A mesh of butterflies blacklisted, / Heart prepared as a cigarette, / More debris than clinical substance

    What an opening! Totally had me caught – in the mesh 😉

    Everything flows from this point on, which speaks to the strength of an opening line, and then, stanza. Brilliantly written Yves 😀

  2. Wow…Love the images: ” butterflies blacklisted”, “Heart prepared as a cigarette” – haunting …yet surreal ennui autopsy …cool!

  3. Oh wow, indeed, love the deep dark feelings here, Yves. Many lines that have been commented also spoke to me but mostly
    “I will never have the strength
    To include you in everything that I am.” That truly resonates.
