by horoscope or telescope (feat. the Id)

By King_Crazy_Dave

kindred comets kindle eclipse lips
awake in wake of waves impulsive
grasping breathless distance
stars afire with indulgence

my tidal sibling swinging
moonbound bringing
sealife skyward singing
"you'll never understand this
we never got to plan this"

I felt it. Each moment sizzled electric with the popping of cranial sockets.
I felt it. Something like a heart’s string tuning a little off key in a way I thought only mine did.
I felt it.  Fiercely teasing my crylids. That sweet Om song being sung through your hungry iris.
I felt it.

pooling like when sk-eyes soak the soil
horizon sagging satisfied
a purple less royal

a teasing distance instant only like a planet's blink
caress tectonic jawlines in an apocalyptic wink

a purple less royal…

Than a skyline with less magic then moon beams abandoned more tragic than the cardiatric  thunder booms shock That shook my spinal Richter scales and burned that familiar scent into my knuckles. White hot and stretched taut over these sheets like memories of you singing and teasing me eternally absent but for the sanctuary you find dashing, wearing your ghost pale from the corners of my eyes.

    Wow girl! Thanks for all that love. I respect your opinions a lot so. David and I have actually considered doing a book collab before. But i get the sense that he says that a lot... you know how he is! Cant keep his pen in its cap.

    Now that's awesome! I loved the repetitive aspects. Even though the styles could be identified, they still complimented each other extremely well. Great job. Kudos to both of you. Scholar
