Kærasti

In the star-scattered night,
              a breadth of graphite fog
            split like thighs for you
                                 the warrior
                        deceptively alone
                casting a sudden|bloodlust gaze
                                  for freedom
     
                    Voracious:
             roaming for     wealth
              histrionics & steel
                 A deadly combination
         moreso than the ornate two handed
                                                                axe
                   & the fresh tattoos on his back

              Devastation & reimposition
                            runs the gamut of
           the process/ what I’d become in a
                              firelight flicker
              for a moment, a wink, a.

lowly                      
                                          whisper
                                   of his love

    Floor Jansen from Nightwish doesn’t mind at all when I write her “Goddess” its unreal experience of being on a live chat with her via Youtube … wow. 🙂 and when writing brought me here, To you, write everywhere, still, fight, never give up, let your imagination lead you … wherever … when you have a written sheet of paper in front of you …. You know this feeling..its like…YOU know!
