I am

I am only a translator.
From the pictures in my head,
the language of monsters,
I am transfigurating words.
I am only a woman.
The visions impregnate my mind,
and I give birth to worlds to be described.
I am only a worker.
My true executives live
in the most luxurious tunnels of Hell.
I follow the instructions
through well-honed instinct
to produce them anew.
I am only a human,
using the peculiar art of speech
trying to communicate ideas
higher than humanity.

Naked Trees

The trees are stretching their spines
trying to reach and claw the sky -
dig into blue flesh for an answer why -
extending greedy and curious vines
into the air:
into the lair
of the howling, swirling dead -
and inside your lonely head.

Liquid

Throbbing lines on my body -
wet kisses, vicious bites -
the fatal lust of a woman
in these voluptuous rites
bursts forth, like a fountain
of my boiling blood -
she engulfs me and drowns me
in her scrumptious flood.

Silence Is The Song Of The Dead

silence
has its voices:
sparrow-tongued love songs,
solemn sighs of sycamores,
traces of whispering memories,
where we lie.
shadows play, black and green,
leaf and stone, wood and clay,
in peace's garden - war has left us
here to wait.
among roots deep, where streams of rain
caress the bones, a wakeful sleep
awaits you, with your friends and foes -
silence calls.
mhmm...

:iconpoeticalcondition: critique:

I liked the overall dictation you've used in portraying the emotions of the person concerned. At the same time, I like how you've built the story around the subtitles themselves, which adds to the overall feel of the original title. All of them do balance each other our and add to the themes and narration in this work. The free verse made me think and I liked how it delivered its punchline. :icongreatjobplz: keep writing and keep posting.
