Come, Sing for Me

practiced  
work-rough hands † †  
chiseling through † † †
my marble surface † † †
come, soothe the angry mob † †  
calling for murder † †  
just under my skin † †  
tear into me; † †  
watch my pain † †  
falling to the floor † †  
in misshapen chunks † †  
and lean into me † †  
the warmth of you † †  
bringing this slab † † †
to consciousness † †  
† † †
savage beasts † †  
love music † †  
I am certainly no exception † †  
come, sing for me † †  
with your lyrics † † †
made of filthy words † †  
exhaled on soft sighs † †  
my greedy ears † † †
long for the sultry cadence † †  
of your tempo giusto † † †
my moon-drenched conductor † †  
composing † † †
my favorite tune † †  
Iíll be your cliche † †  
your harp † †  
your lyre † †  
just pluck my strings † †  
and sit back † †  
for a listen † † †  
† † †
my body † † †
a rough canvas † †  
come, scrape the paint † †  
the others † †  
calling themselves artists † †  
left behind † †  
color me † † †  
with magic fingers † †  
stain me † † †
with pigments † †  
of your own desire † †  
† † †
my eyes are dull † †  
come, look deep inside † †  
shine your brightest light † †  
and watch † †  
my Aries fire † †
spring to life † †  
dancing for you † † †
once more † † †
deliciously threatening † † †
to swallow † †  
you whole † † †
awaken † †  
my dormant embers † †  
pull me † † †
from these ashes † †  
before † † †
I † † †
become † † †
them † †  
before all my art † †  
is buried † †  
under this † †  
weight † †  
of † †  
unmet ideations
