Dark-Sheen Skin - Poem by Jan De Raeymaeker

There was blackness, a darkness, under her skin
That broke out, through the cracks in her lips
Lurked in her hair, her scalp, eyebrows, even her lashes
Leaked from her sockets and around them

Colouring her skin a sultry shade of sombre
Darkening moles, shadowing frowns in her brow
Had pooled in her eyes filling them with occult oil
Only grainy reflections resurrecting to the light

When she smiled it should have been a thing of beauty
But had become a slice of alluring cruelty
She looked worn down by it, corrupted in ways
Annoyed, angered, hungering for a soul cast astray
