Bloody Nails

A villanelle designed to disturb. Mostly my friends.

Bloody, painted nails scrape down my body
Exaltation seizing deep in the chest
Moisture drips almost imperceptibly

Lifetimes fly by, lost in the ecstasy
Lost to the will of the lover’s behest
Bloody, painted nails scrape down my body

 Feel the ghost-light touches of ardency
Trailed by fiery fingers full of zest
Moisture drips almost imperceptibly

Sweltering heat against silk so chilly
Passions unchecked, fingers treasure this quest
Bloody, painted nails scrape down my body

To use this moment as a cosmic key
Aiding the journey to the sun-drenched west
Moisture drips almost imperceptibly

Dying, riding high on an apogee
Of light, and to earth I return to rest
Bloody, painted nails scrape down my body
Moisture drips almost imperceptibly
