gliitchlord's Profile Picture
Artist | Literature
United States
gliitchlord, aka charles, is an American poet and mythist. Since 2006 he has poured out 1500+ poems with subjects ranging from teenage unrequited love to dense sci-fi ascensions to godhood. His approach to language has been called painterly, his phrasing a broad brushstroke of emotions and concrete imagery woven together. His rhythmic free-verse is simultaneously approachable and obtuse, honest yet secretive.

When he is not writing, Charles proudly continues his tradition of being The Worst. He also enjoys video games and hates writing about himself.

i deleted the rambling blog (you're welcome).

2017 will be better.

to start, check this out:
androctonus ~ marrow*
feel my breath encircle your gracile neck & \compress/,
as it fades within the thin air of the sweltering null
<silently consuming you,
the arid, acidic stare of
torture breeding.
you did adore the choke;
you wove contempt into preening,
a repeating murder of self.
fingers down
your throat and
noose around
your waist.>
hastily, we scurry like cockroaches as our gaping wounds drain
& esurient maggots free-fall <from their hosts>;
with the grit between our teeth,
we e  c  h  o the snarls of detuned cellos
<forgetting who you were
with each stab, the orchestra
incessant. can't keep time here,
agony reverberates and failures
burrow deep into bone matter.
teeth shatter every night
and skin ruptures, red
as your pained expression.
i'm left holding
your head.>
dreading the sight of your enervated jamesonite eyes,
i wipe away the bristles of carbonado hair
that once laid intertwined with my pallid glass

a collab with lithium-cocoon
thanks to her for the jumpstart into the year.

2017 will be better.

we can collab/we can talk/we can digitally nod and proceed with our lives

make this year yours.
