tenderly chaotic ambition convolutes upon itself
traversing the languid petals of salient desire
shivering into a tone less torrid
simmering into a long drawn sigh
vague quantities of dewy tears, trailing timeless
reveal sanguine truths tucked into nether reaches of soul
dissappear revealing the opaque ghost of honesty
spirits are easily ignored, as revealing truths
there, undulation throbbing betwixt conviction, melancholy
acceptance, fate, passion, flame, perseverance
cacophanous cultural american soap opera voices intone,
"let me be"
yet soul whispers,
"take me gentle into a long embrace"
today, curse the world and it's dramatics
curl up, eyes closing, enter the spherical void
relax, three-arms length from reality
stoicly pretend it's not prayer
