Exist.

nude into the enraptured 

forbidden sea, behalf the whisper,

its madness in autumn at its wake,

unknown into the burial of yellow roses,

in the tears of ghostly sands,

tossing from forgotten sea light

silhouetted against torn anamnesis

these shadows of our time,

in etiolated remembrance,

our memories are hidden.

the sanctity of blood

that beneath we cut

the waterfall—parallels the blue bluster—

like the blackened, filigree guitar

pouring from the sunlight sonata

dreamed the appareled death.

sense of brambles, eaten hysteria

through every forgotten fallen hour

that blinds us so light like a lover,

but it will be forgotten in the star-thrush

through the valley of winter’s emblem of poetry.

the open sea of flowers

earth wanes from its breast

emerges permanent existence

tracing dreams, cold,

as the trees are defenseless

and darkness ends,

we can emerge

again

glided through the cities

alone or together again

at least one day.

    city on fire
    the pact
    to conspire
    nacre
    to lucre

      lost
      in mania traffic
      the struggle of mind
      teeming with cigarettes
      escaping the birdsong
      as the dark leaves fall
      onto the cherry blossoms silently
      with bloodshed, caressed to dreams
      in the awakened winter, arak trees.

        no smoke
        blue and red
        and black
        the sight line
        of your face
        is the
        onset
        of something so good~

        fingers of waves
        beauty in ocean’s skeleton
        to the rhythmic death
        like a lover
        among the tides;
        the path is yellow with petiole leaves
        in the dew fields, the darkened orchards
        in the brush of wind
        looms.

        like a lover
        to a friend
        unseen
        start
        to end
        knee bend
        and self med too~

    Dear Lucy. The below words could stand alone.
    “nude into the enraptured
    forbidden sea, behalf the whisper,
    its madness in autumn at its wake,
    unknown into the burial of yellow roses,
    in the tears of ghostly sands,
    tossing from forgotten sea light
    silhouetted against torn anamnesis”
    I like these words.
