street rose

street rose

.
aroma
of hunger
wafting thru
eyes
dancing on
my restless guilt
.
oozing rashes
painted red
framed with
dried cum
on thin thighs
.
thorns
which pierce
not the skin
but the heart
sheathed
.
in laughter
that shatters
on the windshield
on rolled up glasses

.
keeping me
safe
.
far away
from the
forbidden touch

.

love the way your words flow...

have you ever seen the ocean at night...it looks like black black silk and it flows with a smooth fluidity which makes you feel that you want to jump into it and let the silk cocoon you...
this poem gives me that feeling...

beautiful...

preeti: you are so right...that ocean is the silky dark underside of the society...we cant pretend it doesnt exist...sometimes we engage, articulate, dive into it and feel it..like your post on FGM.
