Sea Glass

On crimson swells of naïveté, 
Ebbing wings of shattered 
memory,
Ecru mists of blissful doubt,
Blanketed in stars.
Breathless sighs of wine and 
cream,
Forcing silence amidst the 
screams,
Pale reflection drowns the past,
Shelter from the storm. 
Longing for a champagne 
shore, 
Praying not to ache, anymore,
Torn between the evil known,
And the enigma stranger still. 
Verdant cuffs, ankles bound,
Gazing upward, sinking down,
A single tear, mirrored sky,
Iridescent high.
Icy hot and sugar spun, 
Whipped syrah, damage done.
Shades of perfume blind the 
soul,
Inhale...exhale...fade away. 
Distorted bubbles of innocence,
Eyes wide open, shells of virgin 
opulence, 
Broken bonds, jaded chains,
One soul spawned from two.
Ebon wings, emerald train, 
Beauty born of self-loathing 
disdain,
Legend, lore, fantasy,
Release in taffy whirls.
Sanguine ombré, lipstick dawn, 
Island, peace, to sun upon.
Siren dipped in ruby seas,
This vampire's seductive song.

Wondering once what might 
have been,
Never to hate, to dance again,
Regretting nothing, ever, more,
Than fighting destiny.

Years, decades, eons by,
Only once a tear to escape her 
eye,
Shattered on the ocean floor, 
Scattered, like the life she led 
before.
