I heard them dancing
Crazed and overflowing
With savage jubilation

My thoughts were carnivorous
A ceaseless thundering
The scourge
Of my fraying skull

I stirred faithful
Drawn to their reckless tune  
With limbs, compromised
And true to their beck and call

Ear-splitting mayhem
Had filled my every nerve
Thieving my urge to sleep

Hoisting high
My cause to fear
To tremble
In league with hysteria
We braced for the coming rain
Firmly rooted
In a childish dream  

Beneath the sprawl
Of the deepest grey
Swallowed whole
In perpetual sorrow

Our blood coursed warm
Our aspirations were sure
And we fell, hapless
Into our sultry decay

Our words rang true
Born in the fervor
Of our green affections

Our hopes were in bloom
Defiant to the whim
In each gust of peril
We could not stray
From our final paths
To convene
With our tearful mothers

Once bedlam paled
Along trenches of old
And carnage thrived
In each still-beating heart

We were true
To our silent misfortune
Full and smoldering
With infernal valor

Our ghoulish deeds
Were the bane of living chiefs
Who stirred
With ravenous guilt

For their thoughtless crime
The heinous cull
Of their curious
And wide-eyed young
Will someone pierce through
These menacing walls
That triumph proudly
Over ruin?

For I've grown too thin
In forging their strengths
In a juvenile fit of rage

They've climbed beyond
My pitiful reach
And loom with the angst
I've thoughtlessly spawned

I've hurled myself
Into a mire of weakness
Reborn, a hapless fawn
With frail knees
And a haunted, unwavering stare
It was a slow-fading anthem
At the forefront
Of my afflicted mind

In the brightest fuchsia
To the tune of my gradual
And sultry demise

Plundering romance
Consumed my days
With ease
Bereft of an honest struggle

And  I was
Blissfully undone
Alive and well
In this foolish
Yet treasured plight  

Shall it last
Or shall I recede
Into the heart
Of unsparing dismay?  
I had a dream about time traveling back to the 1920s. I married Josephine Baker and began a career as a novelist in Harlem. Why do I always dream about escaping the present? Also, happy valentines day!

You're very welcome. I've been meaning to read the article you shared about Fifty Shades of Grey. For some reason my father has decided to pick that book. I don't think I'll ever understand why...
