the ceraunophile

charged

the night beams

he shifts against the earth

and I am

regret

the ceraunophile

reads the sky

back to the water clogged soil

and I am

fear

ignited

the world aflame

he dreams of freedom

and I am

alive

the ceraunophile

traces my jawline

sparks of radiant electricity slicing

and I am

eternal

-Eva M.M.

” Me and the pen, we are one. If its ink would cease to flow, my ink would cease to flow.”

Thank you all for reading. This poem came to me because I was reading this article about lightening and came across this word and after some investigating, I found out it basically means one who loves lightening and thunder. Though it can actually mean one who is physically sexually aroused by thunder and lightening and I did slightly add that idea to my poem, I mostly stuck with one who has a deep love and admiration for lightening. I wanted to keep this poem sparse in that I did not use punctuation and kind of just let the words flow instead of being separated so to speak. While I know this is far from a perfect poem I wanted to keep it this way for many reasons. In a way, it is kind of jarring and shaped like a strange lightening bolt. Let me know your questions, comments and thoughts though. Thanks.
