Sometimes Hurt     November 19, 2010    

sometimes hurt

is where I belong

heart darkens 

shading beyond

crimson 

 

burgundy wind pulling 

soul to where 

agony 

ecstasy

blend

 

sometimes light

is where I belong

mind wistful 

singing psaltry

scarlet 

 

magenta cloak wrapping 

heart that burns 

luminous

radiant

bold

sometimes death

is where I belong

dreams ensnared 

within blood-red 

garnet  

 

rubicund life dying 

soul stripped bare 

memories

shimmering

burn

 

sometimes hope

is where I belong

love beckons 

seeing desire

blushing 

 

vermilion breath flowing 

time now mine 

palpable

malleable

mine
