The stones will cry out

By Corinthian

In the fallopian darkness
the moon bandaged in clouds
and bitten.lip coloured stars

it was very ...quiet

frost quilted air ...

 soft shoe dances of sistinechapel.flakes
hitting the world.s floor
yawning ianthine lights
shadows pantomining broken ash.songs ..

sycamore prophets
hanging wish. ribbons 
onto their leaves ..

fragrant stories in my trace your casper.lips

sleep my incanting lover
close at last your red.halo annointed eyes
cradling your still born lover
with sleepy arms in her cotton coffin ,

covered in corinthian fingerprints

    It's was beautifully capturing. The fact that the piece had such a haunting origin was softened by delicate words. -applauses-

  • A former member wrote: Simply - delicious. I have missed your words a great deal.

  • A former member wrote: tracing casper lips.... the lover and the beloved... I wondered if the corinthian was a reference to the Sandman character.... as if a dybbuk of sorts... possessing the deceased, maybe.... lip-bitten.... staunch heart-broken... stoic in word and deed.... those fingerprints... such sad-soft traces of what farewells must tear from the coldest of stones..... well wrought, goddess of the steppe.

    such imagery... tone of forlorn... yet caressing.... a wish for the one who knows not wishes..... and a prayer for those who cannot pray, maybe... such poetry is wonderment... such a soul to bare.

  • A former member wrote: hotspots of hearts; the breaking and bending points of all be.ings immovable and cast a spell and a blessing both, as always, with your writings......runes and tunes morpheic and orpheic..

    the ending hit my eyes in such a way that it was either blink or tear, lucky for myself at least I blinked. You're a genius writer inara, and I'm always graced by your presence on this site. If only I could own a book of yours, where I could not need to write a comment, but only throw frivolous value into some ridiculous site to contain all that you've caressed. You must be published....

  • A former member wrote: Bitter, but so well written...
