like a labyrinth

I grew on you


spewing blood

with every till

as each curl

and swathe

took promise..


your agony

was one

of anguish


you remain


allowing numbness

to pacify tears..


like a tattoo

I remained

a winged putto

piercing arrows

to your heart

on your skin

I remain

  2. Please return favors to poets who were here,
    Thank you in advance…
    everyone needs encouragement…
    Happy Friday!

    I sent this reminder to everyone…
    thank you.

  3. Nice. Dark and rich. “Like a tattoo”: I wish there were something like laser tattoo removal for a bad relationship.
