purposeful wordjam in lace doily pink

Posted to Action Poetry




how can you
not love the
combination of
blood red velvet
crushed hearts
and pure white
innocence
tacked on to
your sentiment
like a pleading
afterthought
mixed with petals
of the softest
rose taken from
an unknown grave.
the tender underside
to your passion,
i fashioned a litany
of whisper-strung
demands placed
flush into your
ear... flowing past
your contstruction
paper cutout of
reality and into
your smile.
i lay down a palette
of the palest blush
and wait for your
response
because some of the
best parts
of me
are pink.
