    -------------------------------------------


    vast columns within me
    force themselves to describe you.
    there is this ocean
    with waves
    as green as anything
    shooting towards silver
    disembodyments,
    liking to flesh
    that gnaws unto itself
    it's own infinitely retreating heather.

    if i could place
    on my probing tongue
    of enamour
    the syllables that could speak
    of your beauty,
    of your endless angles
    that defy my concepts
    of geometry,
    i would have volumes
    of perfect linear poetry
    before me.

    there is both a softness
    & a harsh blade
    to everything
    that i've known.
    more so than most
    i take the flaws
    of those i love
    & turn them into virtues.

    & you are fleeting
    like a million others
    of your time
    yet i'll adore you
    & place pebbles
    in sacred patterns
    through your halls.

    i wait, amongst the witchcraft
    of unrelenting hours
    on this slim dime of earth,
    for your arrival
    at my forgotten lips.

    i've had
    easy love
    & it's been nothing more
    than smoke & mirrors.
    i choose to harshly pursue
    through the brambles of always
    the harder truths.
    the ones,
    that outside of any
    harsh round compromise,
    display themselves
    as the war torn heroes
    that they are.

    i'm left
    with a haunting thought.
    that i take things
    that are broken
    & mend them with pieces
    of myself.
    this makes me a fool
    for i love
    more than i possibly can.
    & i give,
    knowing that i'll never
    get anything in return.

    it's strange,
    but i'm positive
    that i'll always remember
    dying in your arms...

      I liked this...

    Easy love,its a concept allright,I think with some relationships the struggle is everything and you give yourself fully,while others its like youve got one foot in the grave,

    Some of the verses are very beautifull too,well all of them actually

    but one nit-pick: "probing tongue" for me hinges on the erotic and takes away some of the sensitiveness conveyed,
    it doesnt really matter I guess,but i was surprised to see it in there

    a refreshing read
