Take comfort

In the loneliness of darkness
In the backlash of cruel words
My mind seeks your comfort 
As the pages in the fire curl
Ink bleeds sharply
Into my paper skin 
Lines of your etchings and your poems 
Embedded deep within 
From my lips seep a whisper
In my dreams I call your name
Tears of my rain
Drip down your window pane
Shattered mirrors reflect your eyes
Like a window through time
The first day you swore you loved me
The day you got tangled in your lies
Still in this frozen moment 
I remember a song we once sang
Our lips met in softness 
Becoming morphine to our pain 
Our lullaby I softly sing
Listening to the mirage of a piano
Now like silk I lay draped
My heart taking comfort
In the memories that we made

    The sorriest weakness we can foster is to belive that we possess no weakness; and then there is that beautiful strength of allowing ourselves to accept the comfort waiting for us, made for us, by something completely genuine - gosh, women are good with remembering 'firsts' - there is something attractive about your mistrust Jay - afterall, we can all relate to that protective but also poisoning sentiment - you are so good at being sensuous - a beautiful talent - J.A.B. %
