dark

I.
dark, dark, dark
the word ignites
and tearful couples,
selves
resigned to a life
of unknowing, knowing
all over again–
a cycle, just fever–
reduced in fear
of starting anew

II.
oh, half,
bergamot odour
in kisses short, chaste,
what have you done
to me?

oh, light
you ask for permission
and forgiveness
at a time,
but light, fright,
why must you burn so–
why must you
scar my face
with brightness?

  1. Your imagery is so vivid and so appealing – even if not necessarily always pleasant to imagine! An excellent double take on two prompts in one, I’m as happy as honoured to have your poems at my rehab 🙂
