Speaking During A Kiss

Poem By Christopher Holman

The warmth of true embrace
an utterance of a desolate word to personify the intangible.
Whisper quietly darling, such a word is shunned
expressing nothing, lie with me
We shall never part, I shall never slip from you
Forever yours, honor me with your innocence.

Dance with me, sliding gracefully through the motions
our steps are as similar as our hearts.
Waiting quietly, you crouch waiting to ambush
with such an adorable shriek you pounce into my arms
such a delight is youth
bringing the hopeful joy

Such passion I have never experienced
an inextinguishable fury blares from my soul
a kiss of the sweetest intent
to taste the season of love is to sample life in all it's simplicity
oh the unchained emotion drowns out the hatred
relish it while pure, society expects deceit.

Revel In Anguish

In a tangled web of romance I find myself
the inevitable reminder of my ignorant faith
I have become oh so accustomed to the role of 'Martyr'
yet I cringe at thoughts of capitulation.

The Mirror Of Self-Loathing

It stares at me with unforgiving eyes
baring me down, haunting me with unending disgust
Can I not seek redemption?
Loathing expressed through a glance,

The Iconoclast

A caustic presence overshadows this room
a stench so foul it chokes the dead
throttling him in the dark
he shouts in vain, beating the walls for life

Of A Dying Breed

Holding the hollow tendencies we once cherished
I weep the tears of a failing dream
saluting a ship that never sailed
worshiping the deity that never created

Soldier Of The New Age

Each day ending with another tear
each breathe punctuated by the sobbing realization
every scene running those translucent images
going through the motions for inexplicable purpose.
