An Incubus and A Vampire
I don’t think I really know
how it happened. I had never
had such a potent sensation.
My whole body, in Ecstasy.
Asteroid Eros struck me hard
from behind. I didn’t mind.
That’s what I desired. A completion
deep within. Yet no one is there but me.
Just as the young girl is wedded to the Bael,
she knows she will never be without company.
His spirit will always be there, within her heart.
This other matter. This bladed fascination.
I held you in my hands and knew
how much damage we could do.
The metal shine in your eye tempts me out.
I’d hid so long. I knew all those secret passages.
All those aching dreams.
No release in sleep, awakened,
in terrors armed.
