Phantom Pain I

A single word    
Would serenade  
My soul. A taste.  
It's all I crave.    
Endless art.    
A broken arm.    
Heavy hearts    
And smoke alarms.    
This ecstasy    
It fills my dreams.    
My God.    
I'd give you everything.    
To feel your words    
Upon my skin.    
My darkest sins.    
The dread that burns    
Beneath my flesh.    
To walk this road    
Is certain death.    
There's beauty though    
In my despair.    
Stripped of shame    
With gifts to bear.    
I've no control.    
I'd break my being.    
I'd sell my soul.    
Take my hand
For love is blind.    
And lead the way    
To my demise.    
Tonight, my sweet    
I'll rest my head.    
Until, my dear    
We meet again.
