Alive

by fyarlgiles

il_570xN.399457503_l80j

fear and rage as raw as pain

dwell  within the devil’s jungle

 I was born of wicked waters

quaking in her red lagoon

cast away from ivory towers

stained with pearls of misery

wild blood

burns in my hands

 unbound by heaven’s harmony

now

with fists that throb and howl

I will strike

for I am free.

Whether we fall by ambition,

blood,

or lust

Like diamonds

we are cut with our own dust

Animus

copper cricket

in the shadow

cursed with cheerful melody

all your chirping

deafens you

to blue notes

in your

memory

Disturbingly Familiar

I can’t really put it into words.. but I like that there are so many recognizable pieces within it. .. Comforting and creepy at the same time. The pelvis- shape makes me think of birth and femininity … but the stark contrast between black and white and the sort of sharp but symmetrical corners give it an ominous feeling. Some elements are strong and warm, others seem tentative and reserved. It kind of looks the way I feel.

crystal showers

heal my mouth

wash away the taste of fruit

give me dreams of

strange desire

 fresh

and new

like lily buds
