Those precious bones of yours
Are ever-melting in a makeshift graveyard
That I've constructed for you,
In a plane of spiritual-coordination:
N: 05'03' –
The centre of my mind.

Rose campions bend their way
Through the rusty arches of this cemetery's gate,
I roll below all of it,
This place is my only halo.

I remember the terrible beauty,
Synonymous to love:
If it were a colour,
I'd guess
Turkish delight sky,
Yes,
It'd be the backdrop that coated out those days.

Stupid webs of tragic romance –
My memory often mythologising
And utilising Monet's lens,
Yet in reality there I was
Raging out of imaginary bird cages,
Sickly oblivious to your purple poison,
And like always so childish in my thirst for curiosities and mysteries,
Just begging for a broken heart.
keep your thoughts out of the water. I'm a strange bird :/

This poem leaves me in need of words, or beyond their reach, Natalie!

I am always amazed your work does not garner a greater audience. The first stance here is bold and unique. And thats a significant statement considering all the work on this particular website.
Keep writing.
I love to see poets not use the word "I", for instance. It can force a paradigm shift in perspective to drop the first person.

Happy Easter dude.
