Scarred – 3/19/2016

Cover me in sin,
Honey thick and sweet with desire.
Scratch it into my skin.
Leave marks.
Marks that will last for hours,
For days, for months, for years,
Forever.
Bruise me until it hurts.
Brand me.
Leave scars.
A calling card,
A signature that can never be erased.
So deep,
Your love will fill my pores,
Burn my blood,
Fill the gaping pockets inside the marrow of my bones.
Every inhale will be glorious pain.
Ecstatic blazes that will scorch and seer,
into white hot pleasure.
Every exhale will be my relief,
A gasping sigh filled with my cindered, smoldering love.
Let your devotion,
your constancy,
Seep into these ravaged layers,
Lying here just for you,
As indelible as ink stains on fingertips.
Leave scars that will remain,
Through the rest of time,
So that not even the Earth that swallows me,
Could ever dream to forget,
The love scars you left behind.

Ghosts – 2/5/2016

tumblr_nwt5fgbbj31svrh8zo1_540

The ghosts rolled in upon the fog.
Spirits whispering upon the air
Their stories,
Their histories,
Their secrets.
They gasp and sigh,
Upon the silent, gossamer light of dawn
Across the branches of the trees,
Against cold, scarred, marbled edifice,
Along the cold, pavement of vacant streets,
And through blackened fences of wrought-ed iron.
Leaving abandoned tears
In condensation upon window panes
The air is heavy with it,
Dense and humid.
For when we breathe in this heavy mist,
We take in the aged,
Feel these ghosts cling to our clothes,
Leave their cloying murmurs upon youthful skin.
So that they may rejoin this vibrant life
Until the passage of Time
Brings forth the riotous sun
Risen victorious from the ashes of night,
To burn the dregs
Of clinging ghostly fog away.
