You have imprinted
My heart
Like a fine tattoo
And the ink
has stained it
black and blue
like an intricate
in swirls and whorls
a complicated design
in flowers and laurels
every move with
the brush
is fine
It enters
my skin
like a vine
goes into the bloodstream
to my heart
and mixes up
the beats
tears them apart
I need to heal
And let it dry
But instead
I find that
The needle
Is too sweet
(though it makes me cry)
Yet I want more
Of this art
This sleek decoration
I want it all
In glorious, colorful
Tattoo me, my love
And make me yours
For you have colored
My soul
For forevermore
