Nights in Beijing by PWB Poets

Fast and furious, I chase
my dark dreams across the sky
as the blackbirds circle and cry
longings of an abandoned heart
fill the void that keeps us apart.

Broken, we are unspoken and chokin',
no token of your esteem for me;
but ghosts in a Chinese shadow-play.

Vast and curious, I still chase
your dark truths amid the lies
that bury us on the eastern plain.

Barren, our kabuki died in vain
with our child a vapid stain-
blood run the dream that never was.

Fast and furious, the chase is never done.

I love the result, but cannot remember whether the title was there at the beginning of came last? And whose is the title? just curious.
Evry line is beautiful -together and on its own.

I almost had forgotten about this, and I have to say the result is awesome. So yeah, definitely we want more exquisite corpses to play with!

I feel honored to have participated.

Thank you very much.
