black ink

By @Inko117

No. 008 black ink

her handwriting moved over the page

as if the blank ink were infused with champagne

inviting words of such beautiful intelligence

these moments when she’s in full bloom

a scene of pure sincere elegance

sitting by the lamplight in her room

pouring her heart and soul

into a love letter meant for someone

to a boy that made her feel whole

whenever she was feeling alone

black ink as dark as night

my good mornings are late nights just for you

i know you’re fighting just to make it tonight

even though you’ll be feeling so blue

i’ll be there to guide you through

even if its last thing i do

because you know that i love you too

there was confidence in his handwriting

as a soldier marching through the storm 

never a time when hasn’t been fighting

in hope to come home to her warmth

even if he’s bleeding and defeated

never stopping because he knows he’s needed

pouring his heart and soul

because of the memories of feeling at home

to a girl that made him feel whole

whenever he was all alone

black ink as dark as night

my late nights are good mornings just for you

i know you’re fighting just to sleep tonight

even though you’ll be feeling so blue

i’ll be there to guide you through

even if its last thing i do

because you know that i love you too

pouring her love from the start

holding her close in his heart

always knowing what they’re getting into

going strong until they say i do 

because you know that i love you too

your mine and i’m yours

your heart and your soul

Is all i ever known

you make me feel so whole

i promise i’ll be coming home
