place of skulls

that sweet kiss
soft as sin

the first cut

the second
bleeds freely

onto the snatched robe
fallen

beside mother
weeping

  8. Oh, hi Loredana. This poem is up to the interpretation of the reader. The poem does have to do with unconditional love on the part of both parties. Ty.

  9. Hi there, Mishla ... maybe this is about giving birth, but it feels painful at the same time. Are those tears of joy or sorrow? Ambiguous. Mysterious.
