on languishing

angelic tears
drown the petty
hells in which
man toils endlessly
an effervescent
incidental acrimony
free falling
inevitabilities
of indecent
insecurities
languishing in the
lamentations of
earthly desires

all roads to hell
are paved with
misperceived
inequalities
the soft flesh of
innocence lacerated
by the stinging barb
of ruthless truth

i burn away the
angelic skyfall
with a pitch soaked
heart aflame with
hunger for your lips
a wickerman filled
with sparrows
ruminating on the
vastness of the space
between our sighs
