tattooed in black ink
your name remains on my skin
though you're gone from me

Eventually this happens with all tattoos dedicated to someone. (The picture, why not?)

There's a heavy finality to this black ink that you've conveyed in so few words. I think the title really sets the tone.

Thank you for feeling so about this poem. And as to the pic, yeah, I'm not sure about it either. Thanks.
