Desiderata Terracotta


Colour me black;
that the shade you cast on me clearly be seen

Paint me a dark coat;
for this charade of a love-wall has long not been

Shackle your memory;
to the mad hut of muddy muck we care not see

Raze it, down lanes of indistinction;
leaving nothingness when all else flee

Sever our sanguine femoral [2];
undertake this ship beyond far flung sea

Shovel up the sands of time;
such reckless buckets of hollow glee


Leaving me out in the rain;
a precipitation wrought with tears


You gave my sense such pain;
vivid paranoia brought on by fears


Vexed every bit of creative text;
livid bay, my art transformed to constant jeers


Checked to break my heart next;
exhibit (a), made my head jump to contusions

Lust for thought that, dearest ex;
for all I want is but simple conclusions


All I need is but to be free;
free of your knee perched in my fork







[1] Desiderata Terracotta
Desiderata basically means 'desired things', while terracotta could be intended to mean 'earthly'.


[2] Femoral [Artery]  
A generic term referring to a few large arteries in the thigh, which if severed can lead to a quick death.
