No, Seriously. How was your Day?

Oh please, what are material pleasures to a creative like me?

What are they but a baseline; a kick-back to remind,

That there is yet a world that exists beyond, well, me.

 

What is a climax to a man who can fit existence

Into one potent and ephemeral verse, a nebula

For you to see from here to wherever on the map your dart hits.

 

Sorry – what was that? Oh, this sounds a little erotic?

Well, why not go the full mile and restrain me

Just don’t awaken a hidden kink in the process;

That was erotic too wasn’t it? Well too bad, I can’t help it.

 

Once I’ve delved this deep into a piece

Every word begins to bleed into the next

Psychedelic, like cursive, the words connect

Fishy how I get hooked. Ecstatic, yet sporadic, in how I receive and relay

The ideas that accumulate and manifest on the page.

 

Okay, enough with the showing off *ahem*

    These lines define the existence of the artist and are surprisingly art itself.

    An abstract and refreshing take, revolving around such an exceptional theme! Oh Dante, but you are messing around with your readers. I detect a very pleasant yet a smug tone in the brilliance of this piece. I actually snorted at the “hidden kink” line and it is really uncannily beautiful to be amused when reading someone’s poetry.

    A spectacular piece of writing!

      1. It is always a pleasure to read something from you. This transformation in your writing style is quite refreshing to read.

        I am well and I hope you are well too!

        Enigma 🙂

      2. Sure! I would love to collaborate with you. Although I have never collaborated with poets ever however, it is surely an exciting idea.

        Enigma 🙂

      3. If you want a rough idea of how my past collaborations have gone you can check out the “collaborations” tab at the top of my page. You’ll get to see how they are usually designed, though I’m open to any changes that you feel are best. We can discuss ideas whenever you are comfortable: originaldantepoetry@gmail.com

      4. Sure! I will definitely read through your other collaborations and discuss with you for further details. Looking forward to work with you in future!

        Enigma 🙂
