With the veil of darkness she shrugs off the written words
racing across her naked skin,
primed she stretches, an inscrutable smile on her lips,
she accepts, chooses to take the road that leads back to you,
a pronouncement more appealing than the need to breathe each breath, in, out.
With a wail of release, the unsaid leapt from the well
of carefully guarded impulses,
echoing through every dream that colours the night sky black,
she sinks into the perfect pleasure exposed by the double-sided knife,
that severs her existence in unison with the dawn.
