Last Summer resides beneath my eyes
Jezebel horizon, cotton-pink skies
Such clandestine awakenings hibernate
Under laths of infatuation incarnate.
If lingerings of Love had survived
Memories of such desolation revived
Only to scorn remnants of your name
As if they weren’t already fuel to the flame.
A pain so greedy to blacken the scythe,
Like the thorn so readily sown to writhe.
And tears that fell, Earth sucked clean
Poisoned by pain, those acid rain streams
Nurturing the demon-seed soil
To hasten, the roots uncoil.
Betrayal beautified, and bright blue-eyed
Love’s insatiable thirst yet again denied.
But the billowing clouds still tumble through skies
While infernal horizons continue to rise.
Truth and beauty zephyr upon seraphim’s wing
Because Summer splendors in greater things…
