I pay for my sins
in a currency of torn connections
the faded colour of your closed eyes.
The ones,
that witnessed all the nasty cravings
and imprints
on the non-tanned skin.
It got chased
by my red-painted nails
the blue smoke.

That’s what made our passion purple –

unlike those ripe emotions,
that got replaced
by immature steps
of selfish needs,
my dirty petticoat
reeked of yesterday’s booze
and unfiltered words –
those got lost
somewhere between sheets,
together with broken strands of hair
our lawless past.
It screamed loud
in high-pitched tones
rightful accusations.

    This a fearsome poem with so much passion poured out into the words. I love this. You are a pure force of perfect porse and i have yet to dislike anything you have written. If you were a novelist I would have to have everyone of your books. I would pay for these poems to be on my shelf so I can break it out and read them. Thank you for this!

    I wonder – if I would consume your poems with music, what tracks in your opinion I should choose? I mean, so I could experience them closest to what you actually imagined while writing.

    I enjoyed the thoughts in the poem. It made research a old Leonard Cohen song “Fingerprints.” It is funny how the past can be put away but never forgotten. Thank you for sharing the excellent poetry.

    Well Done! πŸ™‚

    Introspective, but with a very subtle undertone too.

    Glad to see your fans won’t hate me πŸ˜‰

    “I pay for my sins
    in a currency of torn connections” – such a strong line. I liked your word-image play with the colors aswell!
