Sweet, Sweet Desolation

Ahh despair- sweet, sweet, sweet desolation. As the crow flies- enter onto me Salvation from freedom; on his wings- incarceration. Nuveau of Elvis rhyme Faith acquired through distress Velveteen fraud particle blues- such sad and sorrowful hues. Putrid breath come from the windy west Endymion forsaken for his ethereal beauty; In hidden chains he sleeps eternally Athena stares and weeps, “Great Zeus, to keep him, to love him eternal I beg of thee!” The night unwilling to to speak, to please to keep safe from all darkness creep. Give him to me- Eternal Keep!” “Despair he shall never know in his untainted sleep” In this shadow is mine own despair Sorrow of one I can never touch Skin, lips, muscles, buttocks, hair Daily I consume a pill, maybe two As a crutch for his eternally unreachable touch
