blood words

through this jagged
unnatural wound
I find blood words

to paint
the sound
of pain


violent flame

violet flame
embraced in fire
she strikes and devours
darkness and fear
undulating the horizon
drifting unknown seas

your hunger

i miss your hunger,

a desire to eat your fantasy

sustaining yourself

with a mouthful of whims


she is darkness
he is light
ephemeral embrace
of dusk


the night bled spirits
into my open wound
and i became
a creature of darkness


another museless breeze

leaving only the breath of frost

whispering nothing

avoiding every chime


a distant thought

of you

peeked through

the haze of ether,

us, years ago

or a lifetime, maybe two,

they all run together
