    Inspired by the callaborative work of art "The Antidote"
    by Moonspell and Jose Luis Peixoto
    I.
    Weeping.
    The redemption of
    a tragic moment.
    Self-imprisoned,
    spiraling outward,
    blissfully.
    oblivious.
    Would it seem untoward,
    if I told you that
    "I am worthy of burning?"
    I could choke
    on these tears
    and live forever
    in the womb
    of your sorrow.
    No decline.
    No tomorrow.

    AN ETERNAL TODAY.
    II.
    With this luminescent terror we are bombarded
    so as to better understand the smothering darkness.
    And likewise how profoundly with this chill are we stricken
    so as to better appreciate our consumation in the fire.
    Have you contemplated the depths (of that which you are)
    while traversing the rain-soaked highways of your imagination,
    inhaling the moisture that, once, was air, redolent
    with the lust of infinite, infernal passions?
    This permeable transformation remains, undeniable,
    though too often assuming the wicked moniker of fear,
    a countenance of revulsion that stifles a love, intrinsic.

    and I weep for them.
    and I feel sick.

    were it that I even knew they had existed.
    III.
    Antithetical affirmation- how I have welcomed your violation!
    Synchronicity, the current upon which are born wings of liberation,
    that so insatiably should my cacoon be smothered,
    yet that I could still burst forth.

    yet that I could still burst forth.
    IV.
    Ha! Adorable delusion!
    A love so perfect,
    an act of confusion!
    Action.
    Reaction.
    Conclusion.

    Oh my, very word strong... to the uninitiated, i'm afraid,

    this may be...

    ostentatious, confusing,

    but after contemplating the depths,

    they should discover sunshine on the highway,

    liberation from tragedy,

    good work, mate!

    thank you. i cannot urge enough that anyone with the time and inclination to read indulge themselves in jose luis peixoto. paradoxically inspiring it is, indeed.

    much love :)

    I feel like a abyss diver caught on a luminous reef. I'm going to hang out here and ponder this first part to the rain....​

    That was great, osiris, those poems sent shivers up my spine.

    May I add my well deserved ego stroking to your collection?
    You capture well, seduce with words, dazzle and then choke with truth.
