Inside of You (Adult Content)

Posted by vonAsh on May 26, 2011 at 6:17 PM Comments comments (4)

Let me slide into you

I want to know the feel of this magick

from inside your skin

I want to know how hot flesh feels

pressed hard up against your body

how it burns your back to be scratched

nails tracing the long lines of your ribs

decorating you in crimson ribbons

when you flinch and growl

I want to know the pain

from the teeth clenched and sinking

deep into your skin

while fingers roaming slowly

sliding down

Behind the Shattered Mask

Posted by vonAsh on May 6, 2011 at 3:09 PM Comments comments (1)

I’m faltering

for in this moment the mask is shattered

and the stoic woman I should have been

is gone

the illusion

a dwindling vaporous wisp of a dream

slips

revealing me

behind the façade my face is moldering

as if the once dead was risen, masked and walking

for in solitude

unbidden

unwanted tears

come pouring out in putrid drops

a wellspring of suppressed emotions made caustic

caught between...

Rage

Posted by vonAsh on March 28, 2011 at 4:58 PM Comments comments (1)

What is in your heart?

Rage.

What’s that you say?

GODDAMMIT RAGE!

Not love not hate but festered anger

An explosive puss filled cyst

Why?

…why.

Because I don’t know what I did to bring me to this

and if everything is right then why…

Why?

Why did my path come round

down the spiral to this putrid lake of spit and piss

instead, I guess, to a well spring of invigorating life

I thought…...

Estranged

Posted by vonAsh on February 12, 2011 at 7:56 PM Comments comments (2)

I imagine you may think of me

but

from all these oceans away

it doesn’t seem it really matters where

or how I am because

perhaps I am not forgotten

but I am still no less estranged

it is not a comfortable thing

I wonder why I care some days

and some days more than others

but I think it is not really me I care about

...I just care

and it’s kind of killing me a little

no

more than a little...

The Note

Posted by vonAsh on January 22, 2011 at 7:18 PM Comments comments (2)

quickly splitting spider cracks

the mirrored glass, at last, exploding

a million tiny silver knives, falling, shredding flesh

and ringing

like a crashing box of tinkling bells

smashing against the flagstone floor

spreading out splinters of infinity infinitely reflecting

everything

serenely bathed in midnight's light

in juxtapose to the ceiling's crawling

creeping with yellow-orange tongues

flicking, licking, a livid black ...

Twisted Fate

Posted by vonAsh on January 20, 2011 at 5:14 PM Comments comments (3)

Sophia gouged out her eyes

rendering herself blind to beauty out of reach

it saddened her

to see those sweet lips caress another’s flesh

and felt it best

she be tempted by the madness no more

for her thoughts twisted round about the notion that

if she had a moment to render her beloved breathless

she would make it last forever

but the other voice inside her head

stabbed holes into the plan

for she abhorred the scent of ca...

Just a Boy

Posted by vonAsh on January 19, 2011 at 5:03 PM Comments comments (4)

I let him sleep away that balmy August night

after the last time we talked

heart to heart

he looked at me with glittering eyes

and confessed his one great desire

He cried, “If you ever get the gift

take me with you”

if he only knew

if he only knew that today

could have been without the laughter of a wife

a son, and a daughter...

this day would have been darker for loss of his light

to his daydream

he had...

The Eclipse

Posted by vonAsh on January 11, 2011 at 2:26 PM Comments comments (5)

“Where did the light go?” a huge voice whined

from somewhere under the velvet night sky

“I cannot tell you,” was all I replied

“But, why? You told me last time.”

“This time, you figure it out.”

“But how?”

“Look behind,” I sighed

“Behind what?” he cried

“The soul of the world,” I smiled

There was a silence

“Where is the soul of the wo...

The Will of an Angel

Posted by vonAsh on December 28, 2010 at 7:46 PM Comments comments (2)

Dry earth

once a flowing river

once a sparkling lake

ancient water

racing down from the mountains

tumbling across the plains

to the great

yawning beast

lapping the liquid shore

eating it away

slowly reshaping the world

shuffling billions of tiny grains

with a hungry tongue

hard winds and heavy rain

the storm rages

through long nights

and endless days of gray

thick waterfall tears

Break the Glass!!!

Posted by vonAsh on December 7, 2010 at 4:39 PM Comments comments (4)

Break glass in case of emergency

this is surely such a situation

that falls within the guidelines

and instructive addendums untyped

et-al

ad nauseum

in which those brief instructions read

but the dirt on the glass is so thick

it’s tough to tell

on which side the crisis really is

for the solutions is not always the blessing it seems

break the glass

go ahead

break the glass!

it may make you feel better
