Within

Within

A Poem by Black Rose Seraphim

I watch with eyes unclouded

and smile through the frame.

I break the cage ungilded,

the lover you can't tame.

Through velvet tears and crimson silk

I see with eyes wide shut.

These wings are made of gossamer,

a steel you cannot cut.

 

I bleed this rain of fury,

and my laughter shatters truth.

I meld the shattered mirror,

and break the seamless proof.

My soul reflects the candle,

with blade to break the day.

I whisper lies of shadow,

and breath what dead men say.

 

Unforgiving hands of ash and silk,

to touch, to taste to know.

I hold my heart in silver chains,

through eyes of golden glow.

You who fear me know too well,

the pleasure and the pain.

I smile to watch you shiver, and 'round we go again.

 

So beg the winter, beg the dark,

Beg the one who has no heart.

ILOVEYOURIMAGERY!

"These wings are made of gossamer,

a steel you cannot cut."


I like those lines the best i believe.

I can just picture it, whimsical, dark, churning, like a storm cloud in a hollow ribcage...
