a little love

i do not say i want your metaphors all the time. I need your bowl of reflections, white and pure. Thick fog running through my backbones, i am tired of feeling this red colour inside my body. Dilute it, maybe?Splash a mute word, spreading like a fungus, onto my body. You see, i don’t want wildflowers, today. I am insane, and i want your insane, dark, rough love. I have nothing else to hide beneath.i can slice unhappy moon, anthills stretching this cold evening.

can you rustle, beneath the cold sheets of chills? And enunciate the dimensions of love, rainbows for me in an oblivious way? Sequins of art-work. I know your ways are more like a cobweb. A fire extinguisher, is all i wish. something that cures the sore tickle of my back, my bosom and mouth.

i don’t want  berry nights from you, i want your white shirt, to cling. I have been doing that and i shall do it. I want it to hold on like a brush on a canvas, sliding a blurb of emotion. Like a bulge on my skin towards more of left. Crimson skies full of earth.

I want that little love, that little home.

P.S -for a change I have written a romantic piece, after a hiatus now. (to my love)

      1. I was absent from WP for quite a time now and could not manage time to write and read fellow bloggers….

        And now that I am back, there is no way I can miss out any of your creative works…

        Much love ❤

  2. You are an artist through and through, no matter your subject matter. I am fond of this piece! I especially love how you wrote on insanity and love. That, to me, speaks more of what it means to be human. 🖤🖤🖤 ~K
