Dark verse

I had a one night stand with pain

I was unarmed, her flames licked my softest side, i said stop i said wait there is not enough night

To fit the pain, not enough world to scorch i wonder if drunkenness can ever save a soul

Don’t we want to blink at reality and the reality of pain carries the threat of her own unreality so artfully, so comically, so so great, ah

Poetry, the dark fire for the soul. A one night stand with pain, sweet candle of agony with the charring wick of hope oh

Artificial fantasy, electrocution of our nerves, short corcuit, meltdown of meaningness speech becomes slurŕrrrrr

I use the free website annotation tool hypothes.is to add comments to websites. Made for education, it can also “enhance” (for lack of a better word) public discourse. If nothing else, it makes you read articles more actively, like you’re engaging in a conversation with the author.
