Only marry the one
Who you would love to
Travel alongside of toward
The nine circles of Hell

Ideally because he/she would
Make you smile as if you were
Traveling toward the door of Heaven


The Desk Or The Bed?

There once was an old fool
Who insisted on wearing a crown
Projecting feelings onto others
That only made others frown

That fool had a friend
Who was nearer to a boy
An uncrowned fool himself for allowing
This old fool to treat him like a toy

As an example
When it came to old flames
The older fool always said
“It is more proper to undress and share a bed with an ex than to be dressed and share a desk. Ask anyone and they will agree.”
And that was what the older fool did
And for too long this fool-boy did agree

Or at least he was tricked into thinking so
Tricked into thinking that there was
No difference between the L’s used
That “I love you” was the same as “I Lust You”

Crystal Balls

In my possession I have
A pair of crystal balls
Would you believe
That they can predict the future
Upward to nine months?

A Lament For J

I write this lament
Because you cannot see
The one who shares
Your sheets at night
As I have seen

Like the vampire
The flesh, the bones
Are only illusions

There is nothing behind
That skin but lines to lies
Machinations so dark
They make dark appear light

The being that was
Is not the being that is
For only the shadow of a soul
Could subsist off love’s hollowness

Take a look at the one before you
In the light and you will see
Not even a reflection of lamentations
