Cafe Del Soul


The Shedding of Skin
By Afzal Moolla -- Contributing Poet -- [Email This Item]

parched lullabies seem jarring,
gentle persuasion an assault,
quiet understanding reeking of decay,
fatigued under this skin in which I must stay.

Dreams of molting,
shedding the hubris of crafty words,
flushing away all famished rhymes,
ripping the fibers of an ink-stained past.

Knowing.

Always knowing,

that honey-soaked kisses, seem destined,
breathlessly,
never to last.
