THIRST

A frenzied mind in a

Model’s body

Blank stares and coy smiles

The new currency,

 

Broke and alone

You stomp through the galaxies

Up to your knees in foam

As you froth down the Milky Way

In search of

A lantern to accommodate

The blinding glow of

Your heart

As it overflows,

 

And there she lies

Concealed from your gaze

In grass so tall

 

It curls around

Her throbbing core,

 

In the darkness you are

Blind

To the rivers

Bred from her eyes,

 

Her arms outstretched to the stars

As you skip nearer

To the Sun

And incinerate

 

When the scorch of longing

Pales in might

To the promise of eternal life.
