#NaPoWriMo day 15

You can’t stop me now! Looks like I’m getting at least half marks, which is a pass but obviously I don’t do things by halves. Never got 100% in any of my uni assessments so NaPoWriMo is my redemption. Enjoy…

Warning Against Honeyed Lips

Please hold your breath.
Do not inhale the lights.

She will tell you
it tastes like honey.
Rest your head on her lap,
comb away your strength.
She will use Delilah’s razor.

You will sleep.

She will look sweet to you.
You will eat her.
She will taste sweet to you.

Please hold your breath.
Do not inhale the lights.

Her scent will wash over you
unrelenting.
No matter how sweet,
smoke means burning.
There will be ash.
It will fill your throat.

Every word spoken
covered in dust.
White.
Like the saints will wear.
