revel in your own heart

Scream of Pop by ludicrouslouisa  (DeviantArt)

Scream of Pop by ludicrouslouisa (DeviantArt)

 

 

there is no quiet in

constant, guttural

thrashing

these possessive,

intricate spinnings

leave tire tracks

on young skin

 

learn to relearn

the innocence of

knowing

 

smell of cold leather

the breath the first

rush of cold air takes

warm feet on

winter’s wood floor

whiskey on his lips

lingering perfume

her hair on your pillowcase

fingers hunched over journal

morning, any morning

rain or snow or ripe sun

 

a black tongue

is for the weak

revel in your own heart,

the cherry of your being.

    Only something that sounds complimentary.

So...what do you think?
