Poetics of The Day:
I carved a heart out of my darkness,
Branded your name with burning fervor,
Each letter black, symmetrical, and inimitable
Noir on noir, invisible to all.
Raging and curious, you tossed it
On a pile of burning embers,
It shriveled but remained
Dark and obscure–an enigma.
It died along with the embers,
Turned to dust and ashes, indistinguishable;
The secret and the answer were lost forevermore
Ashes were all that was left of me.
