The Architects of Transformation

"Not Believing"

There inside the walls
of human nature
lies buried a heart of
covered in red paint

Architects of Transformation
feel no love
they only build cities of words
etched like grains of sand
upon the hands of time

They do not bleed like you
they do not breathe like you
they do not love like you

They only build cities
to lure in the travelers
off dusty roads
an oasis
of epic proportion

A lush life
of hyperbole
and dangling
participle designed
like small dwellings
an abode for weary
unenlightened souls
to place each and every
emotion in a separate
and carefully worded room

Cyclops of poetic abortion
stands ready to strike
it all down
with a kiss

    This is such a moving piece. I could render 1000000 images based off this alone. You need to write more poetry Syyd.

    What amazes me about this piece is the appropriateness of it now.
