forever there it taints

Great poem and I love the image you’ve made out of it!
I imagine quite a percentage of the population has a tattoo celebrating a long-gone lover. A permanent reminder, as your poem says.
Thank you, Dr Ali! Yep, it is permanent,that’s for sure! Still finding a nice tattoo to append to it LOL maybe something in dwarvish or elvish,who knows…as long as it doesn’t cover my whole chest though 😀
