nemesis with silver eyes

another candle whispered, (white-hot
fire
i will give you
endless desire)
i dipped my heart in wax
it
hissed
and left a mark
aching and strong

like glittering stars
my tears fell upon the pale
surface of the moon
vivid
within my skin

i ate the fruit
shaped like
an obsidian plum
i pressed my mouth to the sky

hoping it would divide
and wrap me inside
the eyes of Nemesis
the goddess-daughter
calculating and
cold

she snaps her wrists
and assails me with
lashes
laced with pain and
solace

It turns your thoughts inside out,
The Turkish delight of colour
Red blood hot...

This, dear Anguisette,
makes a compelling reading!
I loved it!

i like jimi hendrix, though i don't really see him much in my writing, LOL. i think kissing the sky is how you feel in a sort-of rapture, you feel like you're right up close to the sky. he was probably in his haze, if you know what i mean ;)
