I really love this poem lately. It's kind of weird but I guess the overall tone of it is what I like.

This is the url but for speeds sake(?), I'll copy it here as well.
http://thonatospoetry.wordpress.com/2008/11/06/hello-world/

Ever my longings, desires, and wounds prick with a cold finger
in the part of my brain where the memory of my birth
remains frozen in time
and whose details escape the devil that is in them
but pulse my consciounesss with an acute awareness
that all of my ailings are in the total eclipse of Hell.

Tell me of your strength and demonstrate to me how you pose
before a clean mirror that shimmers your smooth, golden skin
And your weight is against me
but I cannot pull you close enough to envelope and absorb
your essence; my pale needs devour the creaky wisdom
that slips easily away from me in your presence.

Oh that Eternal fires did in fact lick at my every stop and go or
the Hounds of Heaven really did bray violently behind my every measured step
Compare, my lover, these two cajolers to my swollen, aching thoughts:
those punishing flames or wild, barking threats would, by comparison,
feel as a cool breeze across the steaming cuts of lost loves
and even they are shadowed by the total eclipse of Hell.

In light of this, in this dim light, I am starving and lost and inclined
to bend backwards and make a table of my bones; the legs fashioned
from my spine and my limbs the main course
and with the grease of myself dripping from my lips there would be
only my eyes and my feet left over from my self-consumption
that I might watch myself walk away in hobbling gait.

The little reptilian lick, spit of tongue tasting what is black in me
that makes me twitch at trust without control, with whimpering
defining my eternal brokeness
I can better disregard such an interruption to Sense and Passion
merely by watching that large, black shadow drifting towards us all
where all our deepest pains will be shrouded under the total eclipse of Hell.

Eclipsed by that black totality, that gaping hole of Oblivion
which snapped its teeth at our love and swallowed
up the innocent dream we were
I saw you eye one quick opportunity of escape and so pushed you
violently towards it with a kiss on the nape of your neck
and one cold tear dribbling down to the tip of my tongue.

Now that I drift without effort, pulled slowly apart like thick taffy
by the magnetic tug of emptiness which, oddly, softly eases
the snap and splinter of my heart breaking
for all Eternity I will savor this absolute destruction of my soul
having known your beauty
before my having been totally eclipsed by Hell.

–Po Thonatos,
December, Spain

Really? Wow.
