Get Under My Skin

Posted on Updated on

For, Nushki Ten Doeschate

The rain will fall as it fell that day
And leave pink all around the tiles I bled:
“Because I couldn’t
Fuck Jesus, tonight,
I feel myself under a shower” she said.

And “When I bled, VK” she said
Instead of pain what the soul regained
Was mirth; and all ashes of vanity
This life to me has offered, In colours faded, withered:
Crumbled to earth.

“The wet drips down me”, in a
Seamless patter, they slide down your body
In repulsive chatter. Your eyes pass
The point of letting lids, soft fall
And the walls throw back, in whispers, your call.

Your call, in the moment, dulled by the
Dripping drone, pierces the spasms
Of your heart, careworn. The divine memory
You carry; and the diviner that you conjure,
Live off vain lust for him; though he is never reborn.

      Oh gee thanks!!! This poem has added value as it cost me the good books — and of a Perera too at that.

      I’m gonna write another very soon. Keep fingers crossed.

        Oh geez, can hardly wait to see you top this. I admit to having overreacted. Should have kept yelling at you instead of opting for silence. Take care.
