demise of my love

red petals of rosemary blew in zephyr when i saw my lover the day before christmas eve⠀

the heart still remembers the way it used to flutter whenever you whispered words of love to me,⠀

the fingers still remember the feeling of your greasy curls and the midnight tresses tangled around them⠀

and the lips still remember the warmth of the palm of your hand, making me feel safe and protected⠀

painted me in pinks, lavenders and blues, colours i still can't bring myself to forget about— lighting me up brighter than sirius itself⠀

still the heaven's creation albeit your naked body lies in the grave of my backyard⠀

promise me love will breathe back, skeleton of your kiss will hum back⠀

beyond the realms of death, tell me nothing is stopping you from coming back.
