Adornment in a cameo

Adornment in a cameo
grasping slender neck..
Garter'ed of a ribbon, black,
matching Time's reflect...
 
Bead and bauble, bang-up job.
String and toggle, kiss Macabre.
The hiss and tighten, I staunch now,
will charm me soon, to silent sound.
 
Sins and shard-dust, Lay me out.
That bubble breaks, I have no clout.
Bend and breach, veracious me.
'Can't bind nor patch, to hide the sting.
 
I see you sweat, It's not your fault,
I am my own worst fire-start.
So breathe for me when air runs out,
then ash the earth and sing my tout.
 
Adornment of that cameo
falls silently away.
Matching Time's reflection  
on black-ribbon winds, I fade.
