La Frileuse (Ekphrasis)

Posted by S Maref on Sunday, August 22, 2010,

La Frileuse

Tilted, staring at destiny, the frame can not endure. In need
 just to paralyze the hands of time, for what women want 
more than being cherished by such passion.

The pallor faked a smile, muting words on the lips,  and
the fur failed, declaring surrender at the gates of woe,
trapping the skin in frozen inferno...

Fortunately the creeping demise still unable to defeat
fingertips,  used to summarize days and nights in features,
stirring seasons of my life,warming what remains through

aching from within.

In his own language,
a new definition of fury
has been set.

Words charred,
deeds spoken aloud.

Complexity of elements,
poisoned the core.

Within springs
-of unknown depth-
grudge was crusting,
in many forms.

-melt bones-
interpreted in docile temper.


-ache saturated zephyr-
from the nostrils.


Sorrow ahead,
-guilty and terrifyingly tearful-
corrosive memories,
overcast the atmosphere.

To erupt in such volatility:
"it was a surprise"

for his intentions,

The Sum Of Misperception

The Sum Of Misperception

Sarcastically apocalyptic,
though broke out,
within the senses,
debilitating what remained.

For the will, fooled.
Gone astray
in avenues of intellect,


Unto guillotines
belligerently serving
ambivalence's gates,

Raise the flag
upon utterance, ungiven.
Remission would never emit,
below the blade.

Swan Lake

Between snowy shadows,
a grace reflected,
upon the moonlight,

Who dares
to say,
"curse from heaven"?

Therein, the aquatic arabesque
of benevolence,
Unto surrender, leading,

for the prisoner's seemingly
poor Siegfried,
not the celestial spirit of yours.

amidst ages,
melodies mythologized,
behind sinful bars of sorcery.

Strive on, delicate one,
a transformation approaching
through the eyes of choreography.
