Judas Kiss

There is a sound

from somewhere deep within
as you remember walking
along the waters edge
cool breezes caressing long
paper thin strands as you gazed into
a golden sphere
warm within a cocoon of memories
that were only made to serve a dying love
You felt as if you were flying
yet you were falling into one final scream
wishing you could have
just one more beautiful dream
before dying
Lightning flashes upon the road ahead
illuminating a dark figure
with eyes of blackness and fleshless lips
dancing beneath gray stars
that once posessed the candescence
of silver
Razor wounds flow freely
from the briny kisses
of a strangers parasitic desire
as you drown in a river
of chimerical release
The days and nights flow together
a lithium hazed vibration
of some hellish vagabond
from the other side of a shadowy galaxy
Fantasy figurines are
held dearly in your land of dreams
as you cut yourself open
so that someone else can suck you dry
gloating into another pair
of lifeless eyes
misery loves to keep its company
and several are always better than one
A silver chain dangles
from broken motionless fingers
glassy eyes stare unblinking
at the black clouds
that have obliterated
cerrulean prairies of delight
casting shadows upon
a burned out sun
and between the cracks
You had to have
that fatal kiss
from a succulent lover
who left the door open
but never returned
Now the walls have
become shifting iron bars
that contain within them
some glimmer of hope
yet the open doorway
remains empty
E. S. Avery 1998
