“Never Again”

Never again

Will I feel sweet supple lips that couple around mine a bitter kiss that I will miss

Never

Will I fall for your slick words and cherry lipstick the way you spark a small wick

Again

Melting wax on a candlestick your words trick sputtering flames to spit and lick

Never

Ceasing creeping flames inhabit the wood pipe of my habit an addiction to have it

Never again

Will you hold me; breathe out smoke in my ears slowly, warm a swarm your words

Never

Go unheard it’s absurd I can’t stop listening to what comes next, your allure

Again

I fall victim but be sure that this time my actions and words will ensure

That I say, “never again”

Never again

A Walk in The Dark (Act I)

Skin sheen glisten in the moonlight

Soft dove no peace uptakes flight

Leaves

Forest flourish orchids in the night

Darkest beasts hide fear holds tight

Fallen

Porcelain maiden white dress with skin light

Tears fall blurr ponds both eyes lose sight

Never

Escaping feelings those who lose the will to fight

Blind prey prays to survive an encapsulating night

Return

Run barefooted bloodied skirt tattered tights  

Heavy breathing howling labored push might

Hear
