I lie awake for seven nights
Running a knife over myself

Birth of Child

A bit of the savage stayed with me
And I gave myself to you
This circularity led to love
Which lasted as long it could be.

The savagery now birthed
Twice in three years
A set of sons who ravage
Your breast to be.

My love shall know blood
When all will be new again
This circle of a circle
Will know no end
With time as witness
The savage will live.

Desert Love

Our love is bound by chasms
Silted with shadows
In parts horological
And parts foibles.

You will be my ruin
And yours, I.

In this circle of time
Wilting flowers 
And desert rhymes
Will descend lovingly
On our entangled flesh.

Only in death
Can lovers unite
When flesh corrodes flesh
Can lovers smile.
