It was the shattering of glass,

And the stain of wine on her hands

That beckoned our leaving.
Open wounds laid out on the carpet.

Pitch dark, blue-black love

As a stigmata on our palms.


Fermentation and condensation

Served a dripping eulogy to our

Conversations as the bottle wept.

What a pity to see it

Left out to become vinegar,

And leave a bitter taste on our tongues.
We blame our mothers, and savor

The memories of their wrongs.

Woe unto us, double-crossing

Ourselves, and seeing the blood

Dripping from her talons.

We abandon, as we have been abandoned.

Our mouths too thick for excuses.
I hate having to add keywords, or tags.
I just write it out until I don't want to write it anymore.

This is brilliant. That is the only tag word you need. But you are probably too modest to just write 'brilliant'.

I usually just add strings of nonsense to the key words. Or something obscute, to confuse niche fans.
