Passion Be The Colour Indigo...{A Metaphorical Verse, Amour}

Bleeding-out like xylem sap,
phloem oozing from its heartwood,
rows of banely wetwood... inertia-
negotiating crooked grooves
with carved pressed spiral;
slow and painful death
succumbing to winters rot,
and the forest grieves its fiend
for a moment, then moves on;
hard and cold passion be.

Deep within vascular streams
we bleed in darkest indigo
thru' the brooks of our narrowed veins,
in rivers of bloody blue,
like the wounded heart, breathless,
'less the flesh breaks open air,
transmuting like a chameleon...
to the darkest of reds.

Holding-cell for passion the human heart be,
harbouring angst within its bundle branches;
warm pulse cradling dry ice lament,
the sting, immeasurabally maddening
'til faith affords hopes sweetest flame,
and sadness be but memories, vague
to the moist, verdant buddings-
of springs freshened breeze
ushering in-
heart's amorous renaissance.

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
