The Bleeding Sunset

This exquisite pain

cannot be tamed within

it seeps through my pores

pools like acid on skin

 

it’s stencils are fingerprints

etched indelibly on glass

brought up to dry lips

soured wine now will pass

 

it sullies my vision

all sunsets bleed red

dawns dim, not brighten

to your darkness

i’m

wed

 

 

 

 

 

Lizards

The physical manifestations

of your abhorrent manipulations

are rippling excitations

down my lizard spine

 

Such unexpected permutations

include exquisite evocations

and post coital proclamations

from a forked tongue

 

But after countless titillations

i’m left to ponder ruminations

during lengthy hibernations

so cools my reptilian blood

Weather Beaten

The window of my heart

opaque panes with paint flaked frame

lead lined, cold vitrified

hanging part unhinged

rust tainted

from the sea air

and  winds of despair

 

yet

come close and marvel

the crack’d clefts twist light

into rainbow prism trajectory

while

shards set in shifted sand

nestle my scarred feet

 

but

fear not the shattered glass

for you shall wear boots

and everytime you pass

tread pellucid slivers to dust
