I enter your dark forests

I enter your dark forests

Knowingly,

Knock at your door,

And wait


My destiny

In your hands,

Blindly

I reach for you


My skin

Glowing,

In your presence

A torch


Waves of anxiety

Whimper down my spine,

Falling to the floor,

Silently

They crawl away.


My eyes touch you,

Sweeping

Curves of lips,

Rest for a moment

Smile.


My fingers stroke

Your hair and freeze,

My rejection imminent,

Words forming across

Cold skin.


In broken words

You whimper,

Painting your pain

You draw my crimes

A collage


Failed attempts

At love

Form a solid installation

Between us,


My broken

Promises give wings to

Ugly art

I inspired.


The fire in your eyes

Burns

Holes in my soul,

Darkness overwhelms us


I drink you in

For the last time,

Your eyes knowing,

Lips sneering,

Hands clasped.


My love left you

Ugly

Burdened with confusion

Hate.


I burn my apologies

Carry the ashes

In my heart

I move on

You come to me

You come to me

In the dark

Your scent

Enters me


Your voice

Lullaby of nightmares

Caressing

My dreams


My eyelids

Your canvas

Primed red

Waiting


I taste you

In my dreams

My lips whimper

Silently


You smudge your pain

Across a mirror

My reflection

Your image


Your malice

Fills in my curves

Breathing gently

I moan


I surrender

Your will binds me

Vicious

Soft whispers


Words curl

Twisting my hair

In place

Your prison


Placing your malice

In my gut

Our labour of pain

Grows


I carry your burden

And feel it grow

Ripping my insides

To shreds


Knowing that soon

I can give it back

My muscles relax

Around you


My breath

Slows down

My skin

Aglow


My tongue rests

Upon final goodbyes

I weep
