Late Night Listener (Collab)

comments 15

By Secret Thoughts Within and Vintage Black I am your only late night listener,  Savoring your words spoken  Over and over,  Alone in the blackness.   Messages played on loop In the radio host sound  Of your voice,  I tune in to enjoy  Yet another twilight sample. Your poetic mixtape Of descriptive drunken words Makes perfect sense To my late-night soul, So, I dial in every sunset.   Alas! That intoxicating oeuvre, Over and over I play it as I live […]

Blue Cinderella Rock Song

comments 9

Flying crazy  And loopy sounds  Those loony tunes  House breaking moulds  Silver tights  And bright blue shoes  A light of fancy  A daring spy    A ruthless dream  A tearful song  A seamstress  Stream  Ten hours,  Gone  You’ll never text  Too sad,  Too bad,  Forget, forget  A fearless sight  Smells of ashes  Speed of light  True singalong  Tap dancing night  To loony tunes  A daring spy  A flight of fancy,  A seamstress  Stream  Too mad […]

Sea Salted Skin

comments 8

Your bright materials I will never forget The love The scent The hugs Those kisses The ones You owed me Yet never returned That icy, shadowed Bridge you never Dared to cross Fearing it would Crumble Under Your Feet Lest your soul Fill the river in Drowned sorrow Before wearing That suit Sea Salted Skin Too self-enchanted With those sonnets, second-guessing Our exchanged verses, Doubting The authenticity Of these free rhymes Yet the image Of […]

The Sound of Silence

comments 2

Don’t dare speak up Repeat with me Milady sleeps Fast-forward streams Solarium nights Lavish details Siren-tailed corpse Breaking the silence The sound of deathbed Amnesic smile Subtle, sublime, Such inner fight The prima donna That got the part She was no singer! Her saddened rhymes Lady in waiting She’s held at bay Translucent playground Far, far, away No-one’s an angel A gusty room But don’t be fooled Breaking the silence One sleepy mirage Got only […]
