don't settle for the mundane;

chaos is far more intriguing.

she's every deadly combination
of salvation
& savagery. 

holy water steams upon rosebud lips;
feathers drip from aching shoulders.
the tilt of her chin seduces nations;
the depth in her voice unravels empires.

even the planets battle to bleed their
unfathomable colors into her scarred skin,
and raindrops rush to trace down her arms.

her dignity is every bit as
unbecoming
as the setting
of the evening
star.

oh, do not worship me, love.
you'd never dote so on heartbreak, would you?
