Unguided by sunrise

 

Bottomless collage of hydraulic electroconvulsive palpitations

 

Temporal viola intercourses high-rise metamorphosizing

 

The skyline seismic violet horizon spiralling ziplining (climbing intertwined again)

 

Wyverns of vinyl chimera photosynthesizing bygone eras

 

Climbing travelling unravelling staccatos of trailing derailed maelstroms lost to time

 

Phantasmagorical accordions borderline divine

 

Rigour Mortis goldenrod entwined

 

Taste the chloride fortified mortified spider in the wine

 

Born immortalized to a disjointed primordial life of rhyme

 

Machiavellian evangelicals celebrate bellowing parhelion’s Cinderella’s of melody

 

Unsettling arpeggios like heavenless remedies from memory

 

Flower petals stiletto currents of surging metallurgy Armageddon’s emerald cemetery

 

Benevolence among enemies

 

I find my own serenity

 

In penniless venomous embryos

 

Of off-road sarcophagus rodeos of comatose chromosomes Expurgatorius

 

I clip bangs like they’re out of style but don’t run with the scissors

 

My photo doesn’t shoot so I don’t get the picture

 

Got my hands on the package since I was delivered

 

Only time I get high is when I peak through the blank sheets of a blizzard

 

Slurp snow imprisoned magnetism in the sunny prisms of equilibrium’s limousine

 

But I can’t even rap my head around this heartbeat

 

I bent the hands of time out of shape like it was no matter

 

My arteries into an art piece screamed Elysium from the mouth of madness

 

The plot thickened like an overgrown garden of Eden dreamland ravaged

 

My rhymes have nowhere to go but I give them a safe passage

 

I live in a glass house stoned like a collapsed addict

 

When I smoke a broke bone fractured like a middle-class actor

 

Hotbox of chocolates esophagus my apocalypse rocking chair paradise

 

I’m loaded a locomotive of ovaries endorphins of chlorophyll phantasmagoric rhetorical

 

The torrent of metamorphic accordions folding in chorography’s origami discombobulated complications

 

Rambunctious semi-functioning homunculus tumbleweed through zoos of

 

Rundown pallets of Valhalla’s amalgamation

 

 Propaganda’s stanza extravaganza landsliding serpentine Gaia

 

Pastels elsewhere Valkyrie

 

Balconies chiselled amaryllis of cerulean villanelles

 

Every umbilical syllable vermillion ventriloquism schism by the rhythm of my fingertips’ eclipse

 

Crack open the abyss and let it roll past my lips like a French kiss

 

Before I find a way out, at least I made an entrance

 

Hold the phone, an answering machine’s my true calling

 

Got lost in elevator music with the sky falling writing an earful of mute volumes

 

My train of thoughts’ off track a broken record

 

A minuteman killing time in a split second’s wreckage

 

Rewinding the message of destiny

 

Bending over backwards flip-flopping crisscross eyed like a satellite

 

Off the rails worlds trailing like a hangnail

Author's Note

R.J Calzonetti (SinisterPotatoe)
I only remember half of the triple entendre, "lost in the music". So I incorporated it into the poem, just like one would if they had half a line, and wanted to pay their respects to a verse that could have been awesome. Still happy with this one though!

I promise I read every single review, and I generally will reply to them. I look forward to my next review, because it helps me learn. Even if it's just one word, I promise, I will be happy to hear anything you feel needs sharing. Whenever you write on my shortcomings or breakthroughs, or the themes of my poems, or share ideas and friendly criticism, it decides my next poem to an extent. I will listen, learn and be thankful. And 99% of the time, you'll get a reply unless you're trolling me.
