the devil (fifteen)

©2023 michael raven

stripping down
to view a darker side
& the lies i have
made mine over time

she is industry & so
she examines
lines sketched
wrangling a tangled
web i weave
around my
loamsome heart

i have lingered
in margins for
evernight too long
her hands helping
shadows pour out

severance, now...
love is the law

i part rust shackles
entangling vines
fall away towards
a kiss of tomorrow
