for the glistening

of diamonds

a prismatic internal kin

the touch

of phosphorescent fire

lighting on the skin

heart once bound

by the forbidden

the cringe

before a loveless doctrine

i languished in silent agony

for what you did not see in me

gates, structures, and climbs

no longer entangling

from the mindless

i am set free

the deep well of longing

weds the eternal sea
