Satin

By Cattarax

And
 
Just when…
 
I swore ultimate defeat
To betrayal laced in star.dust


 
He whispered satin
His tongue against pulsating wrist

As he dismantle brick by brick
Bare in front of me
All his demons on coat hangers

He spoke in waves of eloquence
Picking through wilted memories

Confessing how broken he is
The cure, missing an antidote
And...
                               He... 
 

Kept speaking...

With broken metaphors
Of inadequacy & diluted desires

I got lost tracing perfection 
In the in-between line reading 
Of what wasn't said 
Do you...
                                                ...Mean the things, you neglect to say??...


He spoke satin...

Directly into deaf ears
She didn't care...

I couldn't hear...

Soliloquies erupting with evident self torture 
Etch misery in his eyes
I'm lost...
In his sky...
Where...
Stars forgot to shine

 
&
He 
Kept speaking...

Swearing never again...
The louder he whispered 
The more he believed
Maybe...

Futile...
Pointless... 
Meaningless...
To be lost amongst his words
As if I can mend
What wants to be broken

&
He continued...
To speak...

I begged him to stop...
Constructing a noose of lace
Selecting a place 
So I can fall with grace 
 
But...

He is brok.en
Torn, shattered & abused
Unrepairable 
...Or so he believes

He...

Doesn't realize
My nails tracing his spine
Is the remedy for his shattered ego

&
Again...
He spoke...


 
His voice is comfortable
I want to fall apart in his arms 

...Trust him...
With demons I don't trust myself
Professing darkest of hearts
He swears he is unable to love again

As I sit here
Replaying conversations of days past
I wish she would just be what you want
So... 
You would be with her
&
I can remove you

...Head.space is valuable...
                                                      ...It was to late before I noticed...
                                                                  ...How much I have given you....

I need a secret keeper
A key holder, to the soul I promised to sell

    This is a tight piece of writing Lady, we could read it again and probably will, tight
