Fading

a cold long wait
or a warm inviting one
lilting along a luminous lullaby
loving every little linger
along the lonely winding winterway

for all you who sleep tonight
for all you who weep tonight
for all you who creep into
furrowed familiar facades
of formidable futures
fashioned by soft sweet fingers
feeling for fantasies
fallen by the wayside

am I freaking you out?

Hannibal just offered me a slice of pie
requiem for a redolent lie

I'm just here to die
smile sweetheart and ask me why
as the smoke muses merrily up
to a rough brown sky
arms wide open
lips sealed
to a lost pipe
you claimed was all yours

as I grimace at the rotting tobacco
rife with the smell of last night
lost night
lost fight
last bite

and you just might
but not quite

find a piece of me
on your windscreen
glimpse a touch of me
through your smokecreen
taste a bit of me
on your coffee cup
waste a lot of me
as you fuck up.

loved the first few verses. didnt like the last line. its probably just me - seemed incongruous. but the reast was AWESOME

Fading like a billow of smoke leaving its trail. It's everywhere and nowhere.

And we finally get to read your every twist and turn again. Wonderful!

Why is pain so integral to beauty?

Is it in my eyes
That I see it in your words?
Or is it in your words
That my eyes water?

Beauty born
From honesty.
I live your words
Vicariously.

Welcome back Inkblot.
