Doppelgänger by Robert Beveridge

Blazing colors overwhelm me…
Passion convulsing, entraps my soul…
Great art/Amazing writing…

The Machinery - A literary collection.

Illustration by W. Jack Savage Illustration by W. Jack Savage

you have turned away from my kiss
the fatality of it intrigues me

I stand having
been marred by my dreams
my innermost thoughts even
betray me

I do not want to be
the thing I become
when I sleep

the fear of sleep
my thoughts now betray
me in daylight

I remember nights entangled
with women
who are not you
I remember love
not like the love
I have of you
these visions are palely attractive
washed-out images
from mind, scrapbooks
I have not opened
in many months

I stroke the skin you touched
the last time
you reassured me of our
love it burns through my stomach

tonight will I hold you?

You have turned away from my kiss
the fatality of it intrigues me.
