your poems tattoo
new destiny lines in my palms
i bleed scented roses
colored in Pompeian red
my hair entangles in hibiscuses
stolen from the tropic of cancer
the bed grows thick aerial roots
the wind plays an archaic song
i toss and turn in silky sheets
it smells pines and dark ocean
your heavy kisses fall on my palms
my destiny lines lead to your soul
i wake up
where are you?
a lonely verse sleeps on my pillow
a rose sighs
You conquered me.
Now, discover me!
not a warning, an invitation.
you’re looking to the vial
i’m looking to the dagger
neither of us worthy of
the redemption of Verona’s lovers
the die is cast
vain efforts to escape each other
settles between our skins
it rips my heart apart
it makes your heart bit faster
ropes of destiny
Destiny thought I was born under the brightest star
Thought I would conquer worlds from near or afar
But he miscalculated by one grade
And fated me to love you till the end.
