Tonality

My passion darkens
life-sustaining strokes
raw from grating against
the barbed cage of
feigned normalcy

My emotions stain
the paper in
tonal relief, artistic
only in the shades
of light to dark

My skin crawls
with need withheld
my morality cringes
with the painful grip
of desire denied

My soul seeks
not a savior
but a consort, craving
demanding a release
of savage longing
