His ebony hair, tousled above a foreboding brow
Morose with worry
Extinguishing embers of a cigarette
Like those of a love mismatched.
Her ivory skin, scattered with freckles
A disparaging attempt at connect the dots
A defeated disregard for unreachable
His honeyed epidermis
Bathed in scars and reproachful memories
Mind shrieking and squawking thoughts
That are not his own.
Her milk-hued body
Castrated within an uneasy aura
A reverberating cage of overanalyzation
Chewing until she sees poppies under her nail beds.

Invites them to indulge in
Giggling until tears drizzle rosy cheeks
Running until grins
Metamorphosize their lips.
Converse until secrets spill from their
Routinely untrusting psyche.
Intertwine in homogeneous Zion.
the fruits of a fiery felicity.
They have found each other
And nothing else matters.
