Pools of rich Mahogany dripping through shivering cracks
Flowing freely on colourless feet; Gerti moulded fire
Ruby falls into roomless heat, her body shaking eternally
Mahogany is deepening, no walls though she is engulfed
Caving sense of dignity, rough toes quiver turning to dirt
Drifting into pity our favourite darling cannot speak now
Floating on a mountain of deceit, spiked with beautiful impossibility
Fantasy overrides reason to fill in the cracks, duty unbinding
Floods of Mahogany glossing her thighs, immersed in fascination
Ruby cannot comprehend a world before the fall, her Mahogany’s azure
Her shuddering corpse dissolves into the red river haze
Valleys of love collapsing beneath the storm, gentle tide misconceived
Ruby’s poison murdered her world, duty froze Mahogany’s caress
Mourning home to break port, hope has ripped dream’s flesh from bone
Mahogany evaporated, her body remains inside his clutches
Blazing sails on a silver, still sea catching an imaginary breeze
Droplets of Mahogany scattered in taunting disarrays
Ruby won’t submit to her adoration; sailing away to blackest gates
She wanders her isolated path to a cavern of dust
Blinding her eyes once bright; diamonds pierce her greying iris
Squirming in shackles of coal, a flame to her blood
Ignite your dearest child – Ruby the run away from the pit of azure
Silver diamonds cannot catch her and in torment, Mahogany is vanquished
Ruby smiles in deliberation, irony reigns as deliberation is dead
A moment passed she cannot recall, echoing from the most precious of times
She thought Mahogany would follow, he whispered he’d chase her
To the ends of the Earth. His Lords have him chained; her body for his soul
Prohibition of fluidity, Mahogany must stop dripping. Cracks stop shivering.
Whilst hypocrisy is paramount, Ruby’s throat is dry.
