On the dark surface of the night,
The fly of oblivion buzzes past.
I stare at the knowings of my life,
Shrouded in askance.
Clout of unknown suspicion haunts.
But your loving gaze rules the night.
My passions strike again and again.
So, I let my tormented mind drown.
Polishing old remains.
You look inside my hollow eye.
You taste the frown that dances my lips.
You choose to sew a scattered heart.
My hunger you tame.
Making splashed paint come to life.
In your fire I burn my soul,
On your tender kisses I thrive.
Vulnerable I hate to be,
Like knife slicing through butter,
You make me in strength believe.
Hope floats to survive.
Sorrow licks my plate of sumptuous treats clean,
Tethered to my sins,
I pretend to be bravery queen.
Rider of dawn,
You stroke my hair,
Re-kindling my joys.
Stay you may immortal...
Cast pale shadows chasing off the night.
Embrace me so eternally.
Encase me in your love tomb.
And I shall live with you beyond time.
