Random Poem:

black roses

palpitation is all i hear, sideways
then i move to lay on my tummy
a wet walk on the beach is what i see
i breathe your breath smelling cacao
a mouth's taste only yours i've fully drank its sweet chocolate
the nape gets slowly burned
i lay on my back
to Antlantis, i am mistaken
you hold me as we dance
we stop 'til our bodies comfort
each; we are the other cinched
getting too fast, wanting; bursts
a bang!
every second is past -
i lay in a smile, awaiting,
for you to come for black roses
don't you swear at my deathbed, please.
