Love is on a Heart Shaped Pedistal

is on a heart shaped pedestal    
sometimes the first casualty of desire    
at the mercy of a thousand transgressions    
from ticks and triggers    
of dark labyrinths primal    
and subtle torments of the soul      
body language comes sprightly      
from chaotic corridors    
a reckless black sea    
all crossed arms    
eye roles of refusal    
strategies of power    
proclamations of will    
and pretty please poisons    
front stabbers anguish over back stabbers anguished    
the strong cherish the weak    
impelled to rescue    
as if delicate mewing kittens    
from desolations cold blade    
abandonments slow violence    
then to reconcile    
hearts sooty overcast moon    
love is a two way street    
and i move on to hold precious you    
in pain stricken arms    
my shelter    
in a cruel world    
of fire and ice    
oh to feel her kisses    
after blood and thunder    
to adore heart breaks mend    
to touch tenderly, dark clouds    
as sun sets a new    
and no matter the pain    
to forgive everything    
yet limping still    
a slow melting snow    
that we may caress each other    
the only    
kindness and soft place to fall    
we may ever know    
seeking deliverance    
in each other's    
dark musty warmth    
to make up    
in a tangle of tears,    
wet kisses    
unctuous heated breath    
tender mercies    
love is    
on a heart shaped pedestal
