i come to you half mad with desire my *** turned to sacrifice; starved, like an Unwatered flower, A wretched *****, A sacred *******, A temple of worship,
Do you remember How you created me? In A sort of Rebirth, out of the carcass I once was Aching to be consumed All my flesh and bones and sinews, Stripped away. Now, just the soft dew of our skin, The clear thickened air dressed in fire Smoked by the scents of sage and salt evoking numberless poems
For me to swim through your body back and forth in a sacred liturgy Bloodied and purified I am Laid bare before you now amidst The white sheets of the alter A purity of sin almost worthy of worship, almost crying out the holiness of lust before the gods. And Our velvet kiss turning to a midnight confession all of our vices and virtues Are as blood and as sky.
Based off the concept of physical love and religious love as being two manifestations of the same impulse.
