silky promises

you told me 
you’d be there
for me
that you’d read
my words
late at 
n i g h t

those silky
promises

yet you only
skimmed through
those lines
flapping your
dark godly wings
flying out to more
luscious
v e r s e s

those silky
promises

so exquisitely thin
one can still
inhale the aroma
of cheap cigar
dressed up 
in cuban
a t t i r e

those silky
promises

the words
are still there
for your one
and only 
reading
pleasure

naked
flowery
dark
and
mourning

just for your
eyes only,
those very silky 
promises,

    1. so happy you could read the mood in this one so well, Secrets. The intention was indeed to have a somewhat “self-aware” sadness transpiring all the way through…no matter how alluring those promised readings (or silky or smokey textures) are… thanks so much Secrets!
