Poetry that paints pictures and soothe emotions

_mood_

I lie supine between two open doors

casting a lasting gaze into my soul

Coffee vapour travels me on a tour

It shows me a dead fire to poke

.

The shine of the lantern

is a new man

Until the clock shows me a new time of a new mile

I smell sleeping flowers

to feel not alone

.

The books teach me steps of a new route

& the chains

have left my neck into a new cool

.

Tell the wall to quickly suck her own sweats

Tell the ghost to swiftly vanish into her own chest

.

This mood summons the atmosphere of birds

Let them beat their wings, flatter and sing

This mood beckons spirits and heads

Let them battle and save the dead
