Take this to your grave and I'll take it to mine

by mier   Apr 1, 2008


Plethora of lies estranged from the insipid stare of your eyes,
taunting my tender sentiments and our porcelain minds.
The arrant silence between us left caustic aspersions,
which fervently masticates the abode of our deceptions.

Castigate these ample tears invoking ardent sorrows,
that stalk my footsteps and linger endlessly in shadows.
Replacing flagrant longing with scar-stained eulogy,
we are lost in the lovelorn of our arcane purgatory.

The breath of your face sets me into lucid euphoria,
diverting my secrecy upon a curse to remember.
Tonight we reside in ephemeral Elysium,
before the dawn of a dream ends our elusive requiem.

The silence exchanged and affections to stubborn to be said.
You are the iris of my heart and I will never let you fade.
Embrace this ghastly feint of evading emotions,
and let the abundant scars of frail regret be a distraction.

Renegade the disguise that mask our prided ascendancy,
revealing wistful tears enshrined by a heart of elegy.
Depart from this illusive moment, our memories intertwined.
Hush me dear, take this to your grave and I'll take it to mine.
