PRISON OF VERSES

Writing this poem has not felt hard, it has not felt strange, it has not felt any awkward; writing this poem came naturally, just like I think I could write to an old lover a sincere love letter, — even if Selena Gomez is not an old lover of mine. I am still pondering over the expression « prison of verses » as I have recently felt like I was stuck in one, going nowhere. Was it a nightmare? It took me a while but today, I love my prison of verses, I feel comfortable in it, perhaps a bit too comfortable. What’s remarkable is that I have learned to love hers too.

To Selena Gomez

selena-gomez-est-sublime-avec-les-yeux-bleus

I wish I could whisper this…

In my prison of verses I have found something akin to liberty

Something like deliverance and salvation from my love’s yokes

Something like temperance and rest from racing after ol’ flames

Something like an emptiness that allows me to resonate mighty

Something like the taste of your tongue upon my ascending York

Something like blindness that repurposes the ship of my soul’s aim

In my prison of verses yea I have found something akin to dignity

I wish I could scream this…

In your prison of verses I have found something akin to holy lust

The uncanny derby of romancing joy decadence pride and dusk and lux

The best of known worlds the inner the outer the all in an embrace of flux

There and here I have heard a call to dive into the seas of moon-time fucks

Somewhere nearer closer to my ears your yellow soul has battled a reflux

Of melancholies after love’s high-blows and roll-calls and baby-I-am-stuck

In your prison of verses where all sober I have found the holy grail of musts

— Gilles F. Dogbo
