A rush, A candle, and A broken Match

A rush, A candle, and A broken Match

A Poem by Moonflower
"

you were never the darkness, it was me...

"

You speak
through purple lenses
squinted eyes
all almond and spite
Once, yes once they
were chocolate and white

Pure

like the way your hand
folded
around my fingers
Gently, pressing, urgent

I feel your lips
against skin, silver sweet
Tingling sweat on
quivering breasts

"are you awake...darling...lover..."

Oh, to wrap myself in
cotton threads of memorial
Sew those patches,
shifting light, burning
breath with eager fingers
Like the dawn spread feebly out along
your spine

Those eyes

A perfect mouth that curls into
a snarl, disgust
loathing

heartbeat, one, two, four, eight

I look away
and you're still seething
as if my fluttering lung span is crumpling
your own oxygen supply

"tramp"

I heard the whispers, the barking
bites of those well wishers

 don't forget
the sarcasm, baby

I only meant to leave you in the dust
yet here I am,
 covered up to the neck
in mud
while you're scowling like that broken
heart is yours

Mine...mine

You spit,
the ground collapsing under the
Heat of your wrath

and walk away...

aw you're too sweet, thank you so much!
Liked the way it started and suddenly the twist came taking up by surprise, and as you rightly ended the person who hurts forgets that the hurt will also be mutual.
nice composition.

A sad ending to the story in the poem. I like the beginning. Led with real desire and pleasure. I was surprise by the twist in the poem. Thank you for sharing the excellent poetry.
