Straight Stared In Your Eyes


then learn to understand from the beginning
reading spelling you never gave
for as the understanding of early
stems from necessity
suffering endured
the twisted roots grow strong
in the main trunk
grass that grows
in all seasons
willingness to grow
of the eyeballs
connect with a sense of quiet
natural objects that exist in the kingdom hearts
knows how many times i beg you
don't make a spider web to trap
be your victim
lured into the eyeballs
trapped soul your soul
flow through the arteries
meet the desires
moreover this lesson?
stems from the gap fill every cavity of the soul
suffering is the beginning of copulation
intercourse would become rubble
memories in your eyes
should you dispose?
the eyes of the poet
will probably leave as a word
that any re-spelled the tittle of your poem
but still we are not eternal intercourse
conserved only in the eyes and the eyes
one time we wake up the kingdom in one night
i woke satisfy the marble palace
only in your eyes
after the drought of extinction
burned, especially with this?
return to learn again
