The space between. - Portrait of a Young Man as The Artist — LiveJournal
The space between.
Watching the valley of light between us,
I, the abstemious liver, was sinking
in a cauldren of flesh. Remembering that
rifts in a sea people
are a token to grace as they remain.
They are tithed to the church sculpted of bone
upon mutual sight.

She is dancing in pink
like a cat's tail on the other side.
I, writing my bible in an opium den
of fragrenced and nuanced fire.
A diaboloical circumstance
rife with petty spacial awareness
occluded through a prism.
She is absolved in latin
as I compose scripture to bridge the valley
and forge a new darkness for us.

Note - "liver" in line two is not a misspelling.

Wow. That's amazing, and deep and dark. Should I be worried? I heard you were at Nexus. Sorry I missed you. Sick kinda made me stay inside. Did you have a good time? See people?

I had a great time and this poem is only a tertiary result of the experience. I think the sexual tension in it comes from Nexus. :)

I heard you were sick. :( Hugs!
