Retracing steps

 I am misery

He says

I am misery


A droplet of venom

Drowning me in my own sinking

Deeper and deeper

I go under

The sleep of enchantment awakes

Aroused with passion

I touch

She grasps

The linens tussle


I am embraced

But flesh remains

Seizing the beat

Breath before breath

Dispersing the ugly


The sleep of enchantment awakes

Thread follows

An unbridled soul 

Into the mouth

For the skies of resolution

As he departs for another’s awakening
