. I wanted to know the sighs Of mercy. On the bed she lied, Laid bare in the shocking light That twitches, as she rolls I hover and cage her in question, With moist eyes, abandoned By loves interrogations, I stab at the untruths and confusions. I wanted to hear the supplicant Murmur of indolence and shame. With windy caresses I break Her arms, she ropes me red In tangled hair and I struggle To let go. I wanted to taste The twin defeats of victory And indifference, when in the light Of darkest night there are cries of yes And no and false accusations, There is consuming pain and excruciating Pleasure and as we squirm And seethe, she teases, Goading me and then, I loose it. .
