sisters of ache

   
finesse my fear      
i feel exposed      
     
wrap me in the sinew      
of your poetic flex      
my bones are brittle      
& crush under the weight of shame      
     
cradle me in the stars      
that shine from your soul      
born of celestial expulsion      
     
you chant lightly      
a quasar appears.  
stretches & yawns      
swallowing my pain      
     
within your gloaming      
i am sheltered      
     
you witnessed me tremble      
& it sent a shiver      
through the vines of sorrow      
that connect us      
     
in the gods own vineyard      
where we ripened under a pain filled sun      
sisters wrought from ache      
& flavored with agony      
     
until you challenged the deity    
who recklessly played with our emotions    
     
under a subversive moon      
you leaped canyons of hurt      
& grabbed his power      
     
the chasm of guilt      
couldn't break your ferocity      
no, it made you stronger      
     
     
     
 *note for one of the fiercest  
poetesses I know  ~Shadoe~
