    Neckswing

    I saw you in a cloud today
    in the sea of pallid blues
    circling 'round the filthy sun
    so lacklustre of your hues

    I heard you in the rain today
    in a crowd of wayward ghosts
    they were cursing in their breaths
    as you sang from distant coasts

    I smelt you in the snow today
    in a silence that was screaming
    echoing with bygone scents
    of the nights that had me dreaming

    but I didn't taste you in forever
    so I tread your way down south
    to take back the planet's kiss
    that had binged you from my mouth

    and I don't feel no begging arms
    that long to hold me in embrace
    all I've left is bound and bordered
    by the linings of your face

    my bonds are knit by threads of lies
    but the rope they braid is true
    for I'll use it to descend
    down the soil that swallowed you.
