This is a map
drawn from memory,
through a streaming speculum of echoes
upon meager parchment, burning
in exile and erasure,
comes the sound of glass split
in half, shards
of chirping in the window,
trickle of daylight and ash,
and the quickening
pitch of the darkbody,
chiming, glassbody

breaking into sweat,
breaking into rivers,


amid its bruises and wildflowers,
a wing sewn by hand, my hands
tended like candles for a storm, in yours,
fall through the night’s caesura,

faces against the glass,
hold a fine geometry of fingerprints
in the cicada’s heavy breath,
a phantom, a rainstorm,
the fragile lace of a collar
binds the inconsolable pitch
of the body, risen
from rows of indigo roses,
an old wound tingles close to the heart,
routes, inroads, maps
its anatomy all tangles in calico
and glass and poppies,
how these jagged seasons of the moon
keep the darkhorse body
sequestered in a shuttered room,
with its heat like a leash
in your palm, wrapped,
rapt, is the secret of waking
the flesh, out of nothing,

come shining, you said,
for I have you in hand.

Your imagery didn't need the graphic...
but it still pleased this eye.

Well done, Bel1e, and Welcome to Passions!

Wow. This is one of the best pieces I've ever read. The imagery wasn't just stunning, it was utterly real. It's like you conjured solid images with only the beauty of your words. I'm a little in awe here. I think you're very talented. (gorgeous graphic as well, btw)

Damn. Just...damn. I really don't have the words for how much I adore this, so I'm saving it to read over and over again and explore it some more.

Welcome to pip. I'm looking forward to reading more of you, since I'm already so in love with this.

Soul drifter~

Thank you for such a great reply to this.  I am honored that you find so much in it that speaks to you.  I don't frequent these pages often, but thus far I have found a wealth of talent on the board.

Thanks again!

You have a real talent for painting images with words. The image doesn't hurt either. Welcome to Pip!

Welcome to Passions...
A beautiful entrance piece.
Very much enjoyed the read
I shall be watching for more of your work.

For it was not into my ear you whispered
But into my heart..
It was not my lips you kissed
But my soul.

a wing sewn by hand, my hands
tended like candles for a storm, in yours,
fall through the night’s caesura,"
-oh god, this might be one of the most beautiful things ive ever read

thank you flesh~

This poem goes with a specific graphic...that kind of brings it all into focus...unfortunately it got zapped off of here and I can't edit it back in...

Thanks for taking a peek, though~
