Un’risqué

   
        
       
pillaged and            
stolen from the safety of        
my laced blossom print’d        
abaya        
which covers the parts        
of me that are often left          
rawly exhibited      
       
depths   -  perplex’d        
a moribund kaleidoscope        
 view        
-rearranging        
the notion of my body        
       
can't deny this pain of        
something seemingly tiny ,        
rippling        
untouchable        
lodg’d under ribs        
      
- 'i cough’ a trail of rose  
petals on the floor '       
as my instincts        
metamorphs into a room        
for pinn’d butterflies'        
       
slow breaths summarises        
a treatise in everything        
of here              
of this        
of was          
of there        
of somewhere           of is        
           of why...        
only to return;        
pushing forth vast seas        
of salt        
       
i type nothing        
i give too much of some    
thing to say goddamn    
nothing        
i  add  nor taketh away        
..nothing        
      yet i leave nothing out        
   
to keep what is broken        
..close        
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
while watching candles burn on the edges of an anonymous canal...much needed
