MAGDALENE: The Ritual

art-beautiful-beauty-blackwhite-favim-com-4581994

A moth to a flame, they dance the night
A bite to a sin, the fire ignites
Hazy eyes from burning desire
“Hallelujah”, sings the choir

Carnal pursuit— a worship to Eros
Thorn-laced soul to taste a rose
On a moonlit night, waltz to paradise
At the break of dawn, pay the price

Battlefield

At her kiss, something ached inside the tattered corners of his heart. His knees weakened with the weight of memories that started to unfurl but before he could say a word, she was gone. Her absence pierced down to the marrow of his bones; silence never sounded so loud. He sat, side by side, with the memories of whispers turning to shouting and shouting turning to tears. Since when had this safe haven become a battlefield? Hands stretched, he reached out to something… reached out to love.

Angel Down

banksy-graffiti-street-art-girl-with-a-bomb

On a rubble and blackened wall
A little silhouette moans
Once living and running
Chasing kites and dreams
Till wrath from the sky befalls
Fighter planes, not shooting stars
Harbinger of doom
Angel down on crimson dirt
Mortar bombs dug her grave

Music Prompt for Day 9: Cupid Carries a Gun by Marilyn Manson. Today’s prompt is quite tricky since I don’t normally listen to this particular kind of music. Got nothing in mind but the seemingly endless airstrike in the Middle East. Sigh. Also, the title’s inspired by Lady Gaga’s single, Angel Down. I hope everyone is doing well. Fire love instead of bullet. 🙏🏼💝✌🏿️

An Inch Closer: Renegades

couple-fireworks-platonic-tumblr-favim-com-2719258

Perhaps an inch closer is all we need. Let’s be two renegades running away from a world of reason— forget chasing the secrets tomorrow hold and live the now. We need not let our minds speak for silence speaks louder under the moonlit sky. Let’s meet halfway where silhouettes dance around a bonfire. And if this world deems ours is but a dream then let’s dream harder tonight. Let the colors burst from our eyes brighter than neon lights. So, baby, how about you take your first step and I’ll take mine?

Stargazing

couple-dreams-good-night-night-favim-com-1969820

Tell me how you see the universe
Show me what ignites the fire within you
Take me to the spot where the sun kisses the horizon
And to the darkest dark where your demons reside
Do not dread that I may leave or run from fright
For I will bleed myself dry just to gaze the stars
And see how they shine from your very eyes

A fainted-heart’s prayer

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Hands clasped beneath my chin, my fingers interlocked like metals of a zipper fitting into each other. My lips trembled with the weight of something heavy tethered from my heart. Fears? Doubts? Mistakes? No, it was regret. Regret that I did not let go and let You. When I’m one step away from surrender, You never left. When I’m one failure away from falling apart, You carried my load. When I’m one sin away from death, You showed me mercy. Head bowed and eyes closed, I uttered the words I should have said a long time ago, “My God, my savior, thank You.”

Drunken Stupor

absolut-bampw-black-and-white-bottle-favim-com-2325036

carrying the throes that life throws
and the weight of the wait
i long for you and my world whirled
as I whine at my wine again
a maid made of sin from sole to soul
i had no alibi
forgive me, too, if there were two
in my heart there’s only you

Joanna

He slammed the front door shut, leaving her a name that echoed in the four corners of the room—J O A N N A. Joanna sounded like his ‘I love you’. Joanna tasted like his kisses. Joanna felt like his touch. There were no tears in her eyes just lips closed tight. She should have known all along.

Magdalene

Magdalene

Hands slithered from behind
A soft whisper to his ears
“How about a touch for a dime?”
Her breaths travelled to his nape
Lights off, dress undone
Moans filled the autumn air
Eyes closed, he thought of heaven
Eyes closed, she saw hell

Music Prompt for Day 3: The Other Side of Paradise by Glass Animals. I’ve never heard of Glass Animals before but I’m glad to have found this band!😀 This one is also inspired by a prostitute’s story. I originally wrote “her children” instead of “hell” in my last line but the other side of paradise to her could be hell.
