Promise

♥ Inspired by Monocle’s beautiful poem, Blade.  -X

For you
I’m willing to reopen old wounds
Let you lick at me,
eyes glowing,  greedy
Orbs of ancient ice
illuminated by a fierce internal sun

For you
I’m willing to remember old pains
Let you dig deep
in the settled dust and detritus
For skeletons
Painful memories long buried to dull the ache

Dance around these old bones
Wrapped in new flesh
Mark me with your cruel brand of love
Bite through the bitter and into the sweet
Penetrate through the stone and ice
And warm yourself in the fires burning
deep within me
teeth bared in grim triumph

    Beautiful, darkly beautiful. I thought Monocle’s poem was inspiring too.. I can still feel it cutting through me. Just, slightly less melodramatically than that. This is such a gorgeous response.

    Powerful imagery. I was particularly drawn by the all the “depth” metaphors.
