carpet burn-Lois E. Linkens

Lois on Whisper and the Roar. ❤

Whisper and the Roar

carpet burn LL

she craved him like a carpet burn;

the seer of young flesh

on crimson’s rough exhaustion

leaves a glowing scar,

hot in healing

yet reminds her of times

when her legs could brush the rug

in freedom,

now confined

and shackled

to the upright seat of adulthood.


Lois  describes herself as a “confused english student,” though one quickly finds a polished, charming poet in her work. She has an elegant style that compliments her keen insight and whimsical sensibilities. You can read more of her work at her self-titled  blog .
