A Poem by Illuminare

What is happening to me?

My eyes are bleeding, my soul is crying

I’m lying here, all alone with my screaming

The thorns of black roses digging into my skin

The agony swallowing me whole


On the other side of my mind

Your body is against mine, warm delight

And you whispered, please don’t go


I would watch you late at night

When you were just breathing and dreaming

I touched your cheek with my fingertips

And you would whimper in your sleep

I would smile at you then


I held you close in the half-darkness

Promising to never let you go

The fountain of my sincerity overflowed…
