Slush Puppy

“ You know; you look like someone else ”
Was the first thing she said
I never did ask, just who, I reminded her of

Say romance fornicated in the guttering of a candle
And its flame lay in all the rivulets of melted wax

We were the twin coupling of paper straws
As we sipped the sweet nectar
And our tongues lay heavy laden with its sugar

So we basked in the reflection
Of each others mirror

It still troubles me
How in one another’s puppetry
We were just so much the condensation of syrup
Clinging cold to the cardboard cup

And even though our fingers
Could have shamed the bonfires we built
We were nothing more than a mirage
On the horizons of love

Promise me your soul in forever wants
Between the sheets of passion and someone else

All wept in falsehoods with the petals of lilies
And heavy laden tongue now lay split in iron railings

“ You know, you remind me of someone ”

It troubles me still
How we sank with such poetic and tragic quills
Deep to the depths of our own dark inkwells

Never having breached onto a naked shore

Never having ever really, truly, held each other

We were a spasm, a searching for
Alluding to a succinct intonation of meaning
Written playful, colourful on headlines and posters
Fast food prerequisites
To fill the emptiness

Momentarily in some desperation of sincerity
We shared each other’s

  Tingly. I love it. It had a very.. red feel to it. Passionate with undertones of confusion, longing, and regret.
I love the line, "You know, you remind me of someone."
Brings up some old emotions for me.
This was a fantastic write.

Keep up the good work and I'll keep reading.
