Lock and Key
Lock and Key
 
Looking for unique Alex Sherker Tattoos?  Heart Locket
 
 
amid the velvet corridors
where shadows cut to pieces dreams
behind safe doors of corduroy
light crack sifts the solid beams
there tucked within one curtained room
you sit recoiled in vacant gloom
surrounded by blue damask walls
you languid lie as sunset falls
as fingers trace rose silken lips
the windows scratched by bare branch whips

and listening to this song of thieves 
you  fight to find a way to breathe
where wrapped in layers of prickly wool
and imagined dreams of lace and tulle
pretending there what was to be
as you softly weep under lock and key

I like all the contrast of words you used.  It reminds me of these times and all the emotional highs and lows.

Thiss reminds me of Poe. Are you a big fan of his, Cindy? The line shadows cut to pieces dreams seems a little awkward to me, but the dark imagery really works...len

I love this Cindy! It sounds like you are trying to keep your heart under lock and key, to shield it from breaking. Your words express everything so well Cindy, I hope you had a nice Valentine's day.   Henry
