Intertwined Madnesses

Picture Credit

Like the wine we sipped

Moments before,

Just moments before,

Her raven hair lay spilled

Across my silken pillows

The shade of pearls;

And again, and again,

I ran my hands through them;

Our madnesses intertwined,

Like creepers and slithery serpents

On monsoon nights.

    I love the use of repetition here. It’s so tempting not to repeat words when word count is limited, but you have done so here so beautifully.
