Sugar Lava

by Faithless Watermelon   Aug 7, 2016


Nectarines
trapped inside the apples
of my eyes,
soliciting forgiveness,
to my surprise..

Brimstone clementines,
melted candy kisses,
left here for you to know
that I've got your back
if you've got mine.

Deliriously serious
mothers of rainbows
sunder each and every
starry eyed parasite
preying on reverie.

Imagined taste
requires your desire
to know the skin is real
and deeper than
wonder misplaced.

Intuition
won't understand failure
incited
by collapsing words
ignited.

The pieces are here, near and dear, the peace is sincere.

    Great imagery, great use of words and rhymes but there were two stanzas that didn't work out too well. Either way this was by far one of the most unique as interesting poems I've read in a long time.

      Any advice? I knew as I wrote this that things didn't quite fit together

    What a wonderful and descriptive piece of poetry. I found it to be almost surreal as I read it through, like sifting through a colourful haze of words, if that makes any sense at all.

    sunder each and every

    Great write,
