    Paint me black

    I sit and write
    write on those silent sheets
    with each engraved line
    I am drowned in despair

    letter by letter the sheet fills up
    tearing me all within
    it rewrites all my story

    of you being held in those
    silk sheets
    those streaks of kohl flowing down
    your brown eyes
    painting me black with your
    eyelashes
    tearing my skin devouring me
    within your heart
    between the softness of your breasts burying my face
    your fists hold my hair
    and in your breath I am inhaled

    Untold to you is read
    all again aloud
    from those shattered sheets
    which are folded and enclosed within forever
    confined like light in a sea of darkness
    Until we meet
