Tattoo

Berries devoured by eager mouths

We cherish each other openly

Stains of fruit form a tattoo

Dripping with permanent sweetness

My outside matches your inside

Your ambition meets my peace

The scarlet symbols collide in dissonance

Eventually finding a place in between

The artist paints a story on me

Striking red hues of ancient love

Each ounce of pain foretells of struggle

The needle bleeds both our hearts

The raw art makes me tremble

Silently, you remove my pain and tears

We reach a common understanding:

Indelible love for endless years
