lyrics

I want to forget the rift
whose lands prior
fell after your feet,
the bridges your hands
ran ragged
to move across them,
and the wounds; the skin you tugged and pulled.
And the flesh you've tasted as you enticed me
with that biting serpent
that you've woven
deep into my skin.

I feel every drop of lymph drawn from my flesh.
A conjugal feeding with yellow teeth,
spiraling deep within me.
The ashes are free;
they dance in the air like sawdust
flayed from meager boards.

And you buried me deep in an urn,
beneath your sorrows;
where time stands still
and the dew drops grow hollow.
As you enticed me with
the biting serpent
that you've woven
deeply
into
me
