Secrets

 

Do 

you 

want 

to 

know

 

how 

this 

feels?

 

Consequences

of

fire

drips

into 

retribution

 

shellacking

my 

flesh_____

 

If

I 

Could

 

I 

would

 

make 

a 

pledge

with

the

furies

 

and

for 

just

one

moment

 

the

tyrant

could 

be

me…

 

in

my 

thoughts

 

your

touch_____

 

(brilliant

resurrection)

 

hand

to

mouth

 

in

hushed

eye___

 

veiled

kiss…

 

Your

passion

pierces

deep

into

 

…unfurled

soft

parts

 

of

my

being______

 

Twisting

and

turning

 

I

rise

up

 

through

the 

mud

 

and

stain

the

light…

 

You

the 

architect

of

this

vista

 

mouth

of

my

poetry

 

good

of

my

evil…

 

here

where

my

secrets

drink

 

the

gold

of

your

sky______

 

toward

where

the

echo

of

your 

voice

swallows

 

my

curves

 

tasting

 

my

openings…

 

in view

of

this:

(where

my

syllables

undulate

 

to

the

tone

 

of

your

vowels)

 

_____where

the 

velvet

shadows

bend 

 

into

the

sacred

trinity

 

birth

is

given….
