with velvet bronzed skin
Before you, I lust with no shame
Pardon my unguarded eyes.
Presence with frisson
Beauty exudes fire in rage
My gaze forced to another direction.
Unspoken words echoed
Naked my heart spoke
On your deaf ears they fell.
Curiosity and silence in lone struggle
On one foot my path stands.
Your poverty of words hurts
With tender glide through my veins
they suppress every nerve I born.
a sober-sided homicide;
with mind as killing fields
where every inch I walk turns a cadaver.
Suspended in your litany of excuses,
my penchant grows cold feet
and my path turns a blind alley.
My spirits on my right hand;
A cup on my left hand;
A slow fall into alcoholism.
Angel on my wings
I lean on your magic bullet
Hearken to the depths of my ululation.
On your wings devil flies its pride
Arrow of words struck its toll
Far corners of my spirit pierced
Imprints marked in hues
Chink in my armour sucks me under
I am weaker than a babe;
a babe in the woods.
Shut my blind eyes
Your seal on me broken
My hands up in surrender
My feet wheeled on the move
I leave, not without your heart.
