Written for this *Tweetspeak ‘Tattoo’ Poetry prompt
Be the ink that tells a story. Find your way under someone’s skin. Do you want to be there, or are you entering against your will? Give us a poem from the ink’s perspective. Tell a story or cover one—or give the person you’re entering something new to live into.
will you embrace me?
thickly, brazenly in charge
over this rainbow pallet.
I know you’ll love me the most.
my love for you will never fade,
or let you down,
(never) clash with your life
in any way.
you can wear whatever you like around me.
I will love you deeply.
stay with you, forever …
and … you will always remember, me.
