Tattoo

Written by: Scribbler Of Verses

An imprint of you remains,

mingled in the blood racing through my veins,


hewn into my flesh you stay,

a chiselled tattoo from our long-lost yesterday,


deeply branded by your entire being,

rooted to a memory incapable of fleeing,


torn, and twisting inside my skin,

the pain screeches like jangling cans of tin,


a desolate nightmare this agony feels,

with a phantom whiff of your sweet breath my soul reels,


now that you are gone, lost within a labyrinth of illusions,

your voice swarms inside my desperate delusions,


scratching, clawing layers of past moments spent with you,

you are a part of me, an unfaded, vivid tattoo,


and as my dreams of you frantically race,

I am unable to erase,

the blazing picture of your exquisite face,


so let me be, and leave me to burn in this furnace of my hell,

I should have known better,

but all that matters little,


because it was for you, that I fell.
