Delish Love ???

Opium of thy love slithers through my veins

Turning me blue as I struggle to breathe

Vision is blurred and my warmth thou slained

Numb and lifeless as the longing heart failed to whine

A muse or a wrath let the time strain

Oh my precious, once thou whispered in my ears

Words floated through my void soul, and,

Eyes liquefied them into tears

If ever I knew, and heart could bear with my mind

How vague and vain were thy words

Wouldn’t have let my wounds nurture those thorns

Yes the thorns, grew tearing and bleeding my clad

Mushrooming on my unrequited love, they flourish to sic

To turn and burn me into paralyzed ash

“Liquid silk is your skin”, mumbling and caressing entwined

Burlap conceals the shrewd soot now I exhale

My plight lovingly breeds thy mirth and astonishment

Tears have turned into red wine, parched lips can devour

Black is the hue of my blood struggling through my veins

Heart shaped as artichoke lie on thy counter, chopped and sliced

Heartbeats? Oh they have  already ceased and are calm as sea

And my maze love graved and resting, pale dead oh-so-numb
