ONE LAST KISS

ONE LAST KISS

A Poem by Teeya
"

The impasse crossed when the one killing you is the one you can't live without...

"

He existed in that moment…

when the absence of sound

coaxed my cerebral contentment to veer from its asylum,

nearing me to the brim of an incessant need to feel

the familiarity of a quelled want…

 

So, I offered my flesh…

palms turned inward, welcoming muted serrated indentations

to nuzzle the cusp of my wrists, kissing with bated breaths

against the cerulean vein beneath the sleeve of cellophane pulses,

dissolving the line conjoining sanity and madness

into a singular coalesced truth...

 

And this truth…this liberation

released warm sanguine comfort to foster my naked curiosity…

and it crept down…slowly… hugging my skin…

further emaciating any lingering qualms,

beckoning my lips to touch…to become acquainted with

the unknown urge that had taken over

where sensibility once reigned

 

And I tasted…I tasted…him

and I knew him…and then

he became what he had been…

my quandary…my impasse…my contradiction…my Catch-22…

the elemental nourishment vital to my existence…

my brio’s depletion,

extracting the sustenance of my spirit wholly...

delivered with my body as my soul

 

He was my promise…

the promise that had come within

my coming…my birth…my immortality…

the origin of me before and after I…

 

And I knew him…

for he existed in that moment…

and he was mine...

my clarity…my opaque reflections…

my supposed to be but never meant to happen

And he had taken what he’d already possessed,

what I’d freely given him unbeknownst to myself…

all of me…all of me that existed beyond comprehension

And I hated him with all the love I had for him

for taking me away from me and

leaving none of me for myself

 

And he existed in that moment…

the moment I surrendered

my wrists to the affections of those serrated indentations

and felt his touch upon me once more for the last time,

for it was then when my lips found him abiding

in that warm sanguine comfort

that I knew he was my unrequited soul mate

and just as his presence was the death of me

without him

I could not live…

to me the beauty of this piece is in the balance, the aesthetic beauty that is so nicely counterpointed against the barely confront-able pain of emotional turmoil as if love has circled fully around to the point of destruction as opposed to creation. You appeal to our aesthetic sensibilities and so ensnare on an intellectual level while at the same time you gut us emotionally with a whipsaw of sheer raw emotion. On a par with the usual treatment of sensual love or sex that is pain entwined with pleasure, though you here entwine emotion with intellect or reason. This contrast and dichotomy is superb and quite enticing! I'm glad that I came across your work. The obvious passion with which you imbue your ink is inspiring!

you have taken a lengthy piece and made it flow as if it were much shorter ... giving to me an enhanced vision of the message you wanted to convey.

I believe this is about vampires. It's nice and obviously your vocabulary is good but it comes across that you're trying too hard to make it sound nice rather than trying to portray one idea.

Wow. Is this about committing suicide over a lost love? I feel "Him" is a knife.
"the moment I surrendered
my wrists to the affections of those serrated indentations
and felt his touch upon me once more for the last time,"

This is wonderfully powerful, even though I cannot phantom the want or need to harm ones self, it expresses the pain very well. Awesome!

"So, I offered my flesh…
palms turned inward, welcoming muted serrated indentations
to nuzzle the cusp of my wrists, kissing with bated breaths
against the cerulean vein beneath the sleeve of cellophane pulses,
dissolving the line conjoining sanity and madness
into a singular coalesced truth..."

That section really hooked me. It flows so well with imagery that can be interpreted in so many ways.

This is true poetry. It gave my chills and brought tears to my eyes. I would not change anything about this because it is perfect the way it is. I wish I could rate you higher than 100 because I would.

Gods... what beauty.
