Tattooed Blonde

Written By Ivor Steven

 

unnamed (1)

I’m neither here nor there,

Half asleep or half awake.

Not quite conscious,

Like a drifting snowflake.

Sinking through a prism,

Where I fantasize and over-achieve.

Seeing a blonde haired vixen,

Thinking I’ve seen her tats before.

I’m retreating, hiding,

From her beckoning embraces.

My drunken mates at the bar,

Giggling and smirking, as if I can’t see.

Between there’s a tattered curtain,

A pale veil, shadows lurking.

A vision frighteningly surreal,

Like a fiery chasm.

The blonde’s tattoos spasm,

Chasing my body into the surf.

A bubbling sensation, wildly scary,

I sprawl atop the tattoos in the sand.

And I wonder what to do,

With her bloodied tattooed hand,

Wishing I could escape from here or there.

I suddenly awaken, and burst into tears,

Recognizing my weakly fears.

  4. The only way to survive, is to escape, the still waters of reality,the rough surf of the ocean,that sea air to make you think,to find a tattoo to reinvent your sanity, it is the best and only thing
