BeD

On this bed…..

i have tasted those lips,

sealed our fortunes with a thousand kisses.

I traced your very lifeline with my tongue,

etched my name on your being,

now you wear my imprint on your soul

Adorned to the heavens with my wiles


On this bed…

I have choked on your distance 

cowered from your heated malice…

i have bitten down on this tongue that once pleasured you…


On this bed.

i watch your strangeness make a home

On this bed.

luXury

I do not have the luxury you see,

A foreign soul in this ancient continent

to dance my wiles away.

See my worries accompany me as i sip this drink….

The hopes of my parents sidle next to me,

intertwining their aching fingers with mine, drowning all else as i try to loose myself in this dance.


My only escape,

Your mouth on mine…breath on skin…sweet respite.


But alas

i do not have the luxury to linger in this sweet place…

For i am burdened by my parents prayers

dragged even to the concrete jungle.

for you see, my respite has no place here,

in this foreign continent i tread on.

Mine

GIVE ME BACK MY LIFE!

Give to me the passion that unfurled within and burned the ground in its wake

 the tears that broke many a heart…

Give me the years of  hope laden breaths,

the odes and prayers that escaped my lips,

whipping my spirit into shape.


Cloak me with my pride,

that i may  be armed against the tyrant lips of the outside. 

Give the love that was once mine;

a brief moment, lost in time..

Give me court to glimpse his eyes to satiate my soul

to drown in that soul that so engulfed me. 

Give me my life

for i do not recognize the footprints that follow my shadow

Ugly

I’d always known your ugliness lay beneath the surface;

Now i sit across from you

witnessing and pleasuring in your undoing;

watching as that veneer of charisma is ripped like the earth

to unravel the very depth of your ugliness.

I watch in glee

as your very words reveal the darkness that you tried to feed me

 

And i breathe for with each layer peeled,

i finally see my beauty

 

(A.k 16)

Wither

“She had conditioned herself to fall into that empty love…

that blissless love,

and her Queendom paid the price

Withering,

Suffocating

Wasting away to be reawakened

by her King”

(A.k15)
