Bright ink

bright-ink

You offered me your hand
I took it
not aware of
hidden pain to come
love blinded me
but now I see
you were a lesson
a disease
a clock ticking a sound
that brought me down
you placed me in a world
of black and white
shadows tainted me
my heart emptied
as you inscribed your name
you were a slithering snake
not giving
but quick to take
now at last the colors
have returned
my ink bright
gone the flesh flame
gone the fangs
that took too much
chains once locked
rust in the backyard
my heart restocked.
