Please Understand

Please understand that there is something

effectively tucked away in these folds

of mine, something dark and dangerous

and perhaps a bit insane with the surprise

of itself, and it’s black and covered with

the coal-dust of everyday wonderings and

I can’t promise you won’t be touched if

you peer even a little bit into those places

of me where it’s ripped open the bars and

exposed itself to the Out There.

  1. Oooh, I love this even as it sends shivers down my spine! Really like “a bit insane with the surprise of itself” both creepy and gorgeous at once. Final words:
    Monstrously lovely.

  2. This is a very black-beating-heart-in-the-ribcage kind of poem. Like whispering, It makes me want to lean in close to listen. But I have me feet ready to jump away. Lovely. πŸ˜‰

Thoughts? I love those.
