State of mind

by Michael   Nov 18, 2021


I feel nervous at first
as there is only blackness ;
a blackness so bright its blinding
stretching as far as the eye can see

boundaries are fading shadows
exposing my thoughts

I love lying with you in the darkness
admiring how comfortable you are
In your own skin

I adore the way you
wrap yourself around me
how your presence bears no
weight upon my
shoulders

even though I
carry much upon
mine

a scent of lavender
falls like a feather

I ease into the silence,
clearing the throat of my mind
and I begin to undress

my
wounds.

    To me this, is a masterpiece. Every single sentence is written so poetically and inspired. One hardly can find this level of poetry in this site.
