persephone the masochist.

October 21, 2020


you’ve made a masochist out of me / ; /

the one gifted with sunflowers / 
and ran with jovial nymphs  /
in the blossoms and burrows /
all delicate silk and porcelain /
glowing in the sunlight / ; /

now chasing asphodel fields /
and yearning to tame those / 
with even the most unrest souls /
kissing all praise into /
those ebony feathered wings / . / 

you’ve made a masochist out of me / ; /

the treasured angel of the gods /
who dreamed of bejeweled tiaras /
and palaces of marble and gold /
slow dancing on the clouds /
and bathing in the waterfalls /

when you burned my lips with hellfire /
and baptized me in your embrace / 
forging a devil from the saintly / 
the sting so painfully sweet /
for it meant i was your queen / . / 

you made a masochist out of me / ; /

the heaven-meant goddess / 
bathed in luminosity /
now cloaked in darkness /

locking lips with ash and blood /
slow dancing with ghosts / 
wild with abandonment of the good /
sanity lost to the winds /
all in the name of romance /
for the unholiest of gods / . /
tell me why / even when / loving you felt like / burning caramel on my tongue / sickly sweet / and burning my throat  / 
i still couldn’t stop / finding myself / returning to you . /
