Wounds Will Be Left

By Rp Verlaine

Wounds Will be Left

Indifference resides
in daunting eyes
above a mystery
ever certain
of itself
in whispers.

Wounds will be left.

By these fantasies
too wanton
to obfuscate the desires
upon her bed
of nails
empty until
I lay upon it
trying to remember her
with closed eyes.
