In her bones

As she
turned off
the old lamp
she caught
a glimpse
of her tired eyes
staring back
from the mirror
her life flashes
before her eyes
lifes regrets
fill her heart
her once
strong words
no longer
carry their weight
as she
closes her eyes
for another long
empty night
the final
cold winter
sets deep within
her bones

Stars upon my skin

these thoughts
they come
one by one
in the quietness
of the night
I close my eyes
and let them
slowly fill my mind
ever so slowly
fill my soul completely
powerless
over something
so powerful
a force
pulling me closer
to the edge
soft whispers
upon my naked soul
leave me needing more
craving so much more
our dreams are stars
tattooed upon my skin
surrounded
consumed
I find myself
falling for you
all over again
