Charcoal Nymph

Last night I saw no stars
Only dreams those whipped
The canvas of my bedsheets
Eagerly like sugarcane

They say heavenly lanterns
Upon sinners do not shine
But don't my lips pray fervently
To your lips every night?

There's a thin line between
Damnation and salvation
And it feels strangely tempting
To dance across it blindfolded

Dressed in just faith
In that your heart is true
I'm condemned, bareheaded
And longing for you

A pagan nymph
From ancient wise books
No good for your prophets
An angel for you

With purest charcoal
You've drawn wings on my back
For your passion's painted
With red and black
this is inspired by and dedicated to :iconshinyheartplz: A H M A D

I'm forever impressed!
A pagan nymph
From ancient wise books
No good for your prophets
An angel for you


I love it all but, I really loved that. :heart:

outside, where light and darkness seems to have no beginning and no end,
things from a moment ago, now falls, into order or disorder
all souls appear for what they really are, no bounds to mankind books
where poetry hides to rest
