Intenstinal Gratitude

The “forthcoming” backtracks on dilly-dallied whispers.

They place verbal down payments on layaway,
Incomplete soul mates
Running on muted slow dances

Blanketing their pain

“Oh, how I always wished for your lips against my selfless animosity”, said Nobody.

Another decrepit smile
Pandering arrogant Bible verses,
They stroke heartbeats
Made of blood diamond fallacies

Reflecting upon misery with convex eyes,
Companionship denied,
“I’m so glad you stayed”, said Somebody.

Placating vehement touch,
They ache for petulant innocence
To rock them to sleep

Lullabies venture unto unknown certainties,
Lackadaisical clef sharpens ill-fated tomorrows

They make “love” to invisible yesterdays,
Feeding off strenuous caress
Torn, silky dress
Perpetuating restraining orders in duress

Bloodied retinas blink,

    You just hit me on my head and made me sit and think. We hang on to yesterday even when the its toxic, trying to make a relationship what it was but isn't. "Feeding off strenuous caress" ...priceless
