Poem -

beneath gray starlight

Beneath Gray
Starlight.
______________

Since you are Here,
(holding me tight)
I will not fight my
suffocation;

By the Restless
Hands of
Constant Midnight.

Even if I die!,

for what matters is
we have "this time".
(sharing kisses beneath
gray starlight.)

Your lips have stained
my soul with agony,
yet (for you) I would
dip 10 fingers gratefully
into Fates Acid Cup,
and consider drinking!
(the moment those haunted
eyes lit up.)

For since you are Here,
(holding me tight)
I might enjoy my
suffocation.

(By the restless hands
of constant midnight.)

J.Stephen.H.

What powerfully beautiful and gripping 'nonsense' my friend.....I can't imagine why you submit these profound works of yours under the "nonsense' genre in the first place (smiles)......I'm particularly taken with the following ~

                     ~ "I would dip 10 fingers gratefully into
                         fate's acid cup,
                         And consider drinking, (the moment
                         those haunted eyes lit up)..."

Tony,

thank you my friend. I wrote this particular piece
when i was 15, and the world seemed more simple,
or at least straight-forward.

i like posting nostalgic pieces that remind me 
of semi-better days.

Hey J...When I read your love poems I feel like it is from another time period and mentality.  That is a good thing.  Love is so drawing, that even when it hurts, one will stand in agony just to get a taste of it...to take that risk.  I like the description of suffocation.....all original...Great work. xo ;)

ty cherie! and i must say that your comment is

very quoteworthy! you should use it in one of
your verses.

"love is so drawing that even when it hurts,
one will stand in agony just to get a taste of
it. risking everything"

ive noticed your developmental evolution
for years and your style is your OWN.
