This Familiar Curse

Listen to This Familiar Curse by Richard Charles Stevens

Listen to Inside by Ritual Drops

Beauty timeless
As thy verse
Incantation
Unrehearsed
I wear thine charm
Familiar curse
Within thine arms
Ill thoughts disperse

For centuries remained polite
Requesting one long kiss goodnight
Learned how to read
Learned how to write
Most studious mine appetite
Still I vanished from plain sight
As ravaged day betrayed the night

Lost within mine
Heart of noir
With nary glint of
Candle light
Black smoke
In the abattoir
Prophetic glimpse
Of vandal night

New moon shed
Well meaning light
Dismembered from
Existent blight
No ceiling tile
Impeached my height
No sense in feeling breach
This night

Fire emblazoned bright
Placed universe in plainest sight
Beauty timeless
As thy verse
Familiar curse
Mine lullaby

Beauty timeless
As thy verse
Incantation
Unrehearsed
I wear thine charm
Familiar curse
Within thine arms
Ill thoughts disperse

Cutting thro this
Rancid mist
Words of dagger
Bleed thine lips
I quench upon each
Pool of thee
Immune to woe
Befallen me
If e’er waylaid for
Chosen words
Tis thine supreme verse
Calling me

Exhibition
Grandiose
Hath ne’er been so spellbound
By prose
Each word scribed
A magnum opus
Blessed relief from
Fever hopeless

Hath ne’er felt so
Articulate
In so exact a manner
Each syllable is
Critical
Each numbness rendered
Feelable
The precipice thy perch upon
Unreachable
Providing sight to that which otherwise be
Imperceivable

With otherworldly power
Vested
Eloquent tongue
Uncontested
Utmost ventures
Graced
Apace are very plainly bested
Development nowise
Arrested
Quill
Full blooded
Double breasted
Under oath
Betrothed
And thus
Protected

In verse supreme
As thy own timeless beauty
Hath come this night to pay
Mine timeless duty
This verse concurs
Perverse delight
In furthering the purge of night
Familiar this curse of mine
For I am home now
Truly
