Shrouded

I have stroked every shade

licked every hue, savored 

the deeds done dirty 

by poetic lines skewed 

 

I draw dreams in charcoal

smudging the lines, nude

I worship the pain I dip into

my fingers, souvenirs of the lewd

 

I whisper daggers in code

seeking rescue in recluse, scarred

I crawl into your lap of gratitude

reveling in my soul’s dark mood
