Need-Did

Water drop
Anguish
Cries
Out

Did I need to taste your sorrow?

She drowned me
While screaming fixated curiosities
Why I would not return

Oblivious to the obvious

Dilapidated wonder-wall
dripping concrete uncertainty

The fusion of incomprehensible dependency
retarding mass exodus of heart

As she cries all over again

I become a ripped towelette
thrown over her tattered neck of loneliness,
rushing into enigmatic corazon

I embrace familiar barrier
blocking out ultraviolet massacres
speaking subdued tongues,
another floating perdition
needing
a new painting against recycled canvas

Sweet dreams made
of
nothing

Did I need to taste the desolate madrigal
that I see running towards conundrum's savior,
still ready to love me tomorrow?

This heart is full.

I remove her weeping moon
searching for crescent bounds,
riding precipitous eclipse

My ears lie against vertigo's throat of irregularities
As she begs for the liar to return home

Because I always mattered
in the end

Allegedly

    Why does everyone have to feel such pain, why can't life caress the deep pain and sorrow and make the world beautiful once again! Such a poignant poem Drake! Lizzie
