Darkness

by Empress Penguin

Age Group: Adult



Darkness

Pale lips part, titillating the words,
trumped by those assassin eyes that
form the terms of squelched passions,
pursuit facilitated not by a slick,
scrimshaw knife, but by the hands that
once caressed her body with shameful
indulgences.

He cups her neck, tightening the grip,
forgetting how to forgive the abortion
she’s just had; pain exorcises the demons
of regret, like a song that weeps for the
past, happy it’s remained there. His face is
chiseled ice, the wounds of his soul,
beyond the scope of understanding.

One vacant smile, mute to the invitation
it contains, mute, to his spotlight of misery.
He leaves her once embrace in the raw
mechanics of the act, abstract to the concept
of time. His self-proposal is this: to not waste
any more time, to reestablish the vigor of
his drive within the sanity of proceeding,

to feel, the subliminal and unspoken ease
of pleasant diversion. He writes stories
in a chorus of pleasure and longing. He
retracts the gesture of his sin already
committed with personal and fragile depth,
through a stack of other women, most,
already spoken for.

He thinks he has fooled everyone, and that
the realism within his world of fantasy, has
purpose. He dances with trees part time, hacking
bark just to watch them fall, and his grunts
echo in the wind as mighty maples drop their
leaves on the road among broken trunks and
branches. He notes the angles of their collapse,

the graceless limbs as they begin to fail. His touch
is treason and comes disguised within the wake
of houses waiting to be built and award winning
books, written in an attempt to wipe out identity. He
says he’s changed, that he’s not the man he used to be,
but I’m not easily seduced by words. I know he watches
his eyes in the mirror and adjusts his heart, to their

darkness.
