Seeing Through Vapors

written by: Asceticquill

 

I float in a
onyx ember ocean
casting away vigilance,

like pennies in a well
compromising
my enemies,

this epitaph
golden from
first breath,

purging infractions
of fabricated
collapsed factions,

pollution penitency
fleece-able crown
scorching,

risen in the
drowning cryo-chamber
depleting sands of
rainbow gremlins,

vacuum vortex
finality tangos in
Pandora's twinkle,

an infertile
diamond quince
dangles from
apricot antithesis,

libido conforms
to deep-fried
peridot pockets,

reflecting over
a lotus spectrum
lamenting teal
daggers,

sleeping with a
pang drum of
never again,

in a desert of
spent whispers
I string along
the constellation
of you,

blooming a mirage
that mocks
my nomadic reverie.
