Scarlet spun silken dreams pursue

As an ancient greek Mythological siren of a restless sea 
She sings so eloquently 
So deliciously of all those things I would dearly love to forget

Like adoration, its ties its restrictive sailors knots
Which tangle ,which strangle so
Perfectly painful
Within this 
Fisher wife guts

Lost at sea 
Crumbling so willifully
Understanding (as one does)
That this ship must sink
Must drink the poisonous fluid of defeat

Must also consider solitary confinement
Self contained 
Just to observe from now on how many marshmallow moments
are still to be enjoyed
By others

Via all things electrical as pulsing minds palpitations wired
pon tv, magazines and accept 
I am finally .. love fired
