Medusa Medusa Medusa

I'm trying to lure the darkness
of your soul with my
own. What else is there
to give? Everything

I touch turns to dust, my people
to bubble and smoke, my
memories nothing but
ceaseless words and
skin. I forget
my lies, I do not
remember my craft,


The morning finds me bereft of dreams.
I am stone.

just when i thought that every word was overused in poetry, and every emotion dramatised; in hopes of brilliance but ending in rigor mortis,
i read you

its just genius, the way you use your words,
and the style,
just genius
