Tattoos and Obligations

Tattoos and obligations
late night promises, no sleep
seconds gone beneath the dawn
and daylight in between
Eyes are wet with burnt regret
this sweat on clothes sublime
seconds on the lips eclipse
forever on the mind
Tattoos and obligations
promises made and some un-kept
moments gone until the dawn
those nights we barely slept
Oaths and fiery curses
sworn to stay beneath the breath
tattoos and obligations
promises made and some un-kept
