obsidian

 
palms slide
across the sharp edges of agony
a throb
slowly building
in the low notes of song
voice lowered
husky
seduced
by the tones of mourning keys
and sax in the shadows
wailing
a long slow caress
down arching spine
and the hollow echoes
of spectral cello
reverberation
thrumming longing
will the pain never cease
blood trails trickle
five fingers spread
along the walls of fractured being
surfaces not safe to touch
their splinters and shards
have a two-way cut
as haunted forest eyes
watch in recognition
shadow boxing the night
one jab unducked
brings me to my knees
wincing
with it's sharp piercing
please
stop the keening
I remember...
this place is not so forlorn
as midnight shelters
and embraces
smothering
a sad sigh of homecoming
wrenched
from thoughts of tomorrow
light a candle for lost souls
and their graves of belonging
know this truth
there is beauty to be found
in the elegant kiss of sorrow
so for this moment
let me be
drape me in obsidian
darkness becomes me
