runish thorns

By blue angel

on the sleeve of clarity,  
i sought a place extending.  
amidst an earthly terrace -  
   
unable to breathe.  
   
i surrendered to him 'neath a gilded horizon    
where velvet cattails crossed their swords.  
tempting my lips to purr -  
   
captivation arose.  
   
after his shadow unraveled my song  
whispers of amour were chased afar  
nourished not, nor to be sworn -  
   
reflecting nuance, he is a polished stone.    
   
my trembling oath goes untold  
a sun-kissed curse, i gathered from his field,    
vast and full, a hoard of sharpened quills  -    
   
my mind seeks along a ragged ridge.  
   
star-wounded skies beseech -  
a man, a woman, a thrill  
i attest in knowing,    
   
rain erodes indefinitely, darling.    
   
come lie with me, before the moon pales,  
among the withering blooms  
allow our lips to savor this -    
   
poetry bound in runish thorns.

    Such a flow here. I like the way you separate your stanzas in unexpected ways. A lovely painted image in my mind now. I have my own runish thorns but never thought of them this way until now.

    runes, symbols, things of flesh... meaning is everywhere. it felt epic in scale, love and being seem to drown out puny things such as having to nourish, or a shotgun wedding lol. the language is exquisitely used by the way, the metaphors are a metapestry

    Thank you, Darkisses. Your comments are appreciated. This poem is new, I added that quote because I stumbled upon it the same day I posted it, and felt it was so appropriate when it comes to the crafting of poems. Some come easy and others not so much. :)
