The Joe - Sorry If It Singed You

"Nothing fills the gap and stays, at least, it seems that way ... I regret the day nightly because the gap remains and there's darkness painted there ... since the day I winced away from the light ... and the light was the Christ of my younger life when life was still exactly that..."

Tiger


The sky went orange yesterday - God's task
What are stripes to earn, when the stripes are black?
Placate cruelty in man's fingertips
This paroxysm, an effort of his
Man sees the dirt and his feet become paws
Man eats the plant, and with his teeth, he gnaws
These structures built to collapse look much like fangs
His pupils of sorrow, why yesterday?
He asks: why a beast in this shadowed land?
Finding ground on a shore of cloud-like sand
His head not in the sand, nor in the clouds
He is a tiger, identity found

Crude Lines

crude lines were made. but i don't trust the way i fill the space. and i don't trust the way you spill the ink. for space is pure amid our vanity. true eyes are a wade. composure beyond zephyr sway. let tides crash up until your knees. let the sky's tears change what you see. nothing stayed the same. pure eyes lost to a harlot's gaze. how is one able to love the world? how can one love such crude lines?

This Void

I gave my left to the moon
and we made our vows,
accepting this void

I gave my right to the sun
waited silently,
forgetting this void

I gave my hands to the sky
and in this union,
this is our parting

Looking back on that love,
I was one with the day, so I thought
when truly, I was one with the night
