tattoo

like a labyrinth

I grew on you

spreading

spewing blood

with every till

as each curl

and swathe

took promise..

.

your agony

was one

of anguish

yet

you remain

inert

allowing numbness

to pacify tears..

.

like a tattoo

I remained

a winged putto

piercing arrows

to your heart

on your skin

I remain

leeched..

.

  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.
