I Like the Darkness About you

I Love the Darkness about you Darkness surrounds you As spirals of smoke Wrapping you in myth And the delineated danger Of the world, But your proud defiance Breaks through with gestures And chiseled features To dally with the heavy air And tilting your face Out of shadow into light You flirt with a foreboding A Newport in your hand And whisper in a trepid voice Aware of your mortality. Such a crumbling beauty Leaning forward in a skirt Wisps of black hair shading your eyes Your sexuality is in your frailty You are as the motherly moon Scared but proud To hold up a starless sky
