nights without wine

 

Are the worst

The Light Always Cometh: Asemic Post-Lit by Camil Eon

The Light Always Cometh: Asemic Post-Lit by Camil Eon

Rib cage spread bare
and open
in the coolness of evening
heart pumping
blood to arteries that have
lost their will to sing


Only salty water to quench
a million nights
Of blurry pretendings

Fuzzy remembrances
idiosyncratic memories,

like that time you
were crunching
through autumn
for eons
And you wondered
if every moment
would last
this
long.
