The Love And Life Of Death

zerozero-2

The setting is a late May evening

and the sun is just beginning to wane

the grasses are as green as can be

the warm summer rays touch

skin darkened by the halls of recluses

and eyes drunk on the monotone beat

of a single heart

the horizon speaks to me

in ways no human could ever

color elicits emotion

only my darkest days would ever see

drooping sunset

with patch, see-through clouds

for skanky lingerie

calms me better than any

green eyed, freckled face

powered by an engine

stoked by fire of rejection

I reject the clown suit

appreciate the complexion

of life riding the fine line

life and death, I’ve seen both

lived and loved

both

I never knew

why the silence loved me so

treated me to knowledge

people seemed to refuse

I’m so hot

dirty mind, spinning you a web

of lust, lies

and forgotten faces

all in time

before the moon turns on her heel

and I fall into sleep

till our next divorce counseling meeting

 

Remembered, for Centuries

To the history books they are bound,

and yet it is history itself that keeps

them around

Power, prestige, and wealth matter not. One must have come before the other,

and yet it is earthly glory that keeps

them bound

to our imaginations, and in our creations

they are born again. This life, spawned

from great conflagration

One day, they will look at us and say

“How great and mighty those nations were!”

When our names are forged into history

Oh, how I would like to see that day

when we are remembered, for centuries

(Author’s Note: I took these pictures during my WAMTAC (Walters Art Museum Teen Art Council) meeting, which will take place every Thursday from 4:30 to 6:30pm. I wasn’t assigned to take pictures, but I felt inspired to write. What better to do after looking at art than creating art?  You can visit Baltimore’s best art museum (in my opinion) Wednesday-Sunday 10 a.m.-5 p.m, and Thursdays 10 a.m.-9 p.m.)
