Random Poem:

lying next to beauty
jeffkurfess

Lying next to beauty with the truth beneath our skin
 1
Lost between the layers, ever-aching to begin
 2
I won't forget the madness, nor the fever in your kiss
 3
As we held on tight together, falling drunken through the mist
 4
 
 
You swore our love was ancient, like the scrolls enduring time
 5
And vowed to stand beside me should we suffer for these crimes
 6
With your treasures laid before me, I stole asylum for my grief
 7
And cherished every moment of those nights I was your thief
 8
 
 
It was nearly late September by the time my tongue confessed
 9
I'd been haunted by a spirit that you never could possess
 10
For what became thereafter, left my heart a raided tomb
 11
And the emptiest of chambers in these walls still long for you
 12
