I'm estranged from the core,
A wildly delicate distillation –
I try to relieve the pressure
With miniature prayer books,
Yesterday I even bought a Madonna and bambino
To share my grief –
My haughtiness snuffed
From me.

The fireworks are fading in my memory,
Seasickness overwhelms,
As if drunk on stellate angels
Or beautiful men that resemble them
After wine on wine,
And always
With those plastic bones
That melt,
Me(lt).

If I could pulverise your dreams
And add them to my moisturiser creams,
Pour them into precious gallipots,
As if a crypt for your ashes
And never ever
Touch them,
And never ever
Touch,
Except for holy conversations
Until I die,
Until I'm dead.
I'm a bit drunk and a bit sad right now...I think I'm coming down from crazy partying since before the new year :/

Shane, as he does so frequently, seems to have found the apt phrase. Excellently done, Natalie!

Has the senses of a young girl coming through, a touch of innocent love, fresh, almost virginial. And then that final stanza, what a cracker!!

Holy fuck.  This is such rapturous dejection (a concept you appear to have invented.) it's brimming with such clarity, and it flows like melted quartz straight into the soul-sluice.  I don't know how you do it.  The most beautiful love-inspired poem I could ever muster cannot equal the exquisiteness of your pain inscriptions, the dark magic of your heart-ware.  :heart:
