Coming Off Me in Waves



Can't you feel the energy?

Coming off me in waves:

When I touch you - when I kiss you -

When I do anything with you?

Can't you feel it bouncing off the walls,

Deflecting here and there so quickly

That you can hardly see it? -

But you can perceive it - you can absorb it -

You can take comfort from it.

Do you detect an electrical discharge

On your skin every time we connect? -

Embellishing your aura with a

Festival of lights like a

Legion of fairies kissing you everywhere simultaneously?

I can feel your energy

Coming off you in waves:

Enveloping me, soothing me, ravishing me.

I don't know how two souls can sustain

This gargantuan influx of energy without

Being blown out of the stratosphere -

But somehow ours have, and somehow

We find ways to incorporate even more!


Hell Was Made for People like You



If we accept the obvious:

That the vast majority of humanity

Is composed of idiots

Who incorporate nothing

Of the delicate,

Nothing of the divine

Into their existences,

Then doesn't it follow

That there absolutely

Must be a place in Hell

To squash and make

Suffer eternally,

All those suffused with stupidity?

It would be a tragedy

If their lifelong unwillingness

To refine their minds

Went unpunished.

Shouldn't Nietzsche's herd

Be subjected for

All time to the most

Excruciating tortures,

So that every

Atom in their make-ups

Screams to be substantive? -

Pleads for an impossible

Second chance to live

A life of meaning?
