the art of art

i am you

i’ll play a tune

to sing of sunny haze

and cloudy gloom

.

you are me

you’ll write a sonnet

to speak of fireflies

and underground moments

.

i am me

i’ll paint a picasso

depicting stained hearts

and abstracted souls

.

you are you

you’ll orate a speech

declaiming of eloquence

and casual vernacular street

.

we are we

and we will forever be

immoralised from art to poetry

faded all the way to infinity.

Scollegare

Words woven together

A lacework of articulacy

That once veiled under

A taciturn you and me

.

Words dragging knives

Into the ruined tapestry

Now laid in tatters for

A seething you and me

.

Words hung like clouds

Of a settling fog, heavy

Enveloping lines around

A wayward you and me.

☆ you freeze ★

♫•*¨*•.¸¸♪

ceasing the motions

of fluid tarantella

as if caught in headlights

of a mass deliria

shame since i loved the

movements of silk

and your flaxen tresses

that bounce in a wink

you were bold, brazen

you danced swan lake

caught them frozen

like an ice cream headache

the ballroom hitched

breaths at your gloria

as if you were the

intruder cinderella

but you ain’t got glass

shoes, only a glass heart

and when they glowered

it broke you apart

and you fled from the halls

of the midnight ball

they resumed laughing

and ignoring your fall

with no prince to chase

with a shoe size fantasy

the clock didn’t have to

strike twelve to end

your dream revelry.

★ you home ☆

♫•*¨*•.¸¸♪

shall i spend eternity

waiting for a sign, and

flip wishing wells down

the tarnished dimes?

doomed to wander

and to ponder and

to be rended asunder

waywardness forever?

that, i’ll accept humbly

my wanderlust, wish

of worlds in reverie

never one with a roof

but nay will you be

dragged along my mad

adventures, you ate

your fill, you’ve had

never mind the roses

that get tiring after a

bit of a while, empty

as your shot glasses

shall i wait for you to

dance the pub roam

or finish another drink?

you proclaim no’m!

perhaps i’ll wait until

you see monochrome

and pass out and then,

let’s get you home.

☆ that you ★

♫•*¨*•.¸¸♪

true enough that

you may be

a son of chaos

and anarchy

and i’d lie if i

didn’t admit a

daughter of grace

and elegancy

but discord has

order, without it,

our very universe

cannot be

and there’s a

certain clumsiness

to poise and

secret mystery

true enough,

that you and i

are as parallel

as can be

but perhaps

that paves the way

for starcrossed

destiny.

☆ but you ★

♫•*¨*•.¸¸♪

but you, not i

said last goodbyes.

nightmares waiting

for me to sleep

fangs that i know i

would forever keep

while you repose

in your paradise

the price of the pain

the pleasure of lies

but you can only

bleed so much, before

you get shown the

exit backdoor

and you can only

taste the apple until

the serpent bends

your free will

but you, not i

won’t rest tonight.

☆ me, your ★

♫•*¨*•.¸¸♪

me,

you are not.

i am marked

by the devil

i am a wicked child.

you have feathers

on your shoulder

you save mankind.

i rip the grass

tear aesthetics

and loathe the rain.

you bloom in steps

dance on puddles

you’re floral and fading.

i cannot have you

despite i crave

i am a man of taint.

while you wish me

to change into

colours of pastel paint.

black and white,

day and night,

wrong and right,

you and i.

you,

i am not.

Vous êtes mon étoile.

You are my star

In a city of fog and smoke

Pushing stubborn past the haze

And you fill me up with sweet hope

.

You are my star

Ever radiant and gleaming

Your twinkle softly singing

Yellow diamond scintillating

.

You are my star

In a valley of sheer darkness

Mind not the silver cold moon

You call attention amidst the gloom

.

You are my star

Beauty, splendour never rivalled

Your blazing warmth set just right

Kissing me sweet dreams every night

.

You are my star

Raison d’être, my cause for existence

Without you in this vast universe

There’ll be chaos and dissidence

.

You are my star

Glorious, yet futilely too distant

Though I try and wage my luck often

My chances are empty-handedly scant

.

You are my star,

And I jump so high to reach you

Try to fly high above to meet you

But I know that I’ll never catch you

And I will forever be beneath you.

Stellar Blues

I’ve never dreamt of mere earthen vessels

To be cast upon the velvet midnight skies

Rocket engines and metal and satellite links

Floating amongst planets and gaseous fires

But now they’ve all become an inconceivable reality

So perhaps I could dream a little bit bigger than just pocket-sized hues

I would like, perhaps someday, to live out my fantasy

Of sailing out on a spaceship and reaching out for a star named you.
