"I'm getting married"
Between the wine and tequila that detail fell through the cracks...

Sedative Kiss
Coffee's ready
Off to the end of the day
Be back when you're feeling more alone
You didn't leave me with any fear
You haven't known any fear
You didn't have to go

The smoke filled hallway
Hides your indifference
I know you would rather not be so goddamn blank
You're a sphinx
A tease
A goddess with the luxury of time
Time's on your clock
You're a madman waiting for his heart to incend
I can definitely empathize
Your heart is full of cynical wine
You'll bleed it out eventually
Tipsy on your own poker-faced beauty
Beautiful cyanide
I ache at your apathy
Phoenix on call
Kamikazee in the queue
Let me lead you astray
Pain is worth a damn
When you've got nothing at all...

That is great.
Especially because it is something I am having trouble doing--
being concise and letting the reader have a lot of interpretation....

I like it

Brilliant work, I just love "Beautiful cyanide" those two words sum up the feelings and outlook of a person, amazing

The first raindrop falls
That's our cue
Moving with the swagger
Of a storm
No clarity today
I want to see hell
And I want you to go with me
We're both burning through the horizon
Nothing to lose
That's all we've got
I'm daring God to show me different
I'm cursing his name as the water engulfs me
Petulant in my begging for a moment of his time
My life has been one big tantrum
I'm convinced this is a bad idea
I'm having the time of my life
Wasted on fire
I want to see hell
At least its a destination
We're both familiar with..

Take a walk
Down my rainsoaked apathy
My darling
My Sweet
My insecurity
You've never looked so lovely
You wear your indifference
Like nails from a cross
You're a victim
A patsy
Yet you've never looked so lovely
Cheers, love, to the flinching of a new world
Cheers, to God's disregard
I love you
I know it means nothing
Cheers, someone's bound to notice
Eventually....

I like that last one.

I dislike it a lot. It's unfomfortable... but it strikes a chord at least....

When the rain just won't quit
And the river reaches your feet
When the sun takes a dive
And eternal night sets in
When your eyes stop making sense
And see only in absolutes
When you feel that God is near
But you're not so eager still

Dry for a week now
The most expensive clarity
I've ever paid for
The lucid brown eyes
That used to haunt me at night
Now haunt me throughout the day
I miss me missing you
God it gave me gravity

Very good writing Edge Vox. I especially like:

"When your eyes stop making sense
And see only in absolutes"

Thanks for posting.....I'm a little World-weary right about now and reading your work helps clear my thinking.

The bittersweet street lights herald my arrival
As I embark on yet another random way to burn my youth
I can always taste the resentment on the lips of my peers
Why am I the only one who can still be born again
I feel like I'm daring God to do his worst
Honor thy father
It's about time you started to give a damn..

Amphetamine smoke rings
4 am theology lessons
We couldn't leave well enough alone
Haven't talked to you in a year
I'm pretty sure you're getting by
There's a black crucifix staring me down
The only noise is a glass of whiskey
Struggling down my throat
There's no real moral here
The lesson is just getting by
The booze isn't filling me up anymore
The smoke isn't keeping me high
It's the most beautiful crash
Twisted intent and heartsick shrapnel
I'm wired and all too aware that I don't have you
You've been a very gracious victim
It's been educational
My life is over
Alas the sun is rising
The tide retreats
Tomorrow's another day
But not without leaving a mark
On you and me..

Very good Edge Vox.......you should put some music to it....I wish I could get to do some work on my keyboard but there is so much to do and time is running faster than usual.

Summer swelter dying out
As Fall acquiesces it's grey throne once again
Clouds move in panic stricken circles
Above what seems to be a is a very confused world
Monolithic icons of ineptitude and monotony
Tower over the proletariat rubble of what used to be greatness
The storms and river certainly had their way with us again
A frightened child's hand trembles and holds on to the ledge of what seems like an extremly anonymous precipice
Hold on sweet child
Hold on, for I pray the storm clouds can't bare the sun forever
I can't fathom how much you've lost here
The silver naivette of the veterans who long for simpler times
Where were you when the world went mad?
When the sky started falling
When did the blue blooded machine run out of answers
The tide rises
Levees break
And our sons and daughters are lost to us
Our brothers and sisters hurt more than Jesus did
What good is your poisoned truth to our barren mothers
Our beautiful mothers who were raped of their pearls
I only hope to be there when you meet your maker
Watch you try to answer for letting them slip away
I ache knowing the sea swallowed so much more than brick and nails
Oh beautiful mothers know that the stars die beautifully as well
And we cry for them too
Bury your loved ones
Pick up your scars
And come on home...

Almost lost you
Almost lost you brother
Where was your head
Where were your eyes
What the fuck were you thinking
I've never given a shit about me
As long as no one else gets hurt
If something happened to you
I don't know what I'd do
I don't know what I'd say
I don't know how I'd be able to come back from that
And I don't think it'd matter..
