Blood Love
© 2003 Black Tangled Heart

Open your arms for me
Underneath the velvet sky
Mutilated wrists burning
Red and black, spiderweb scars
Mine and yours, pressed
Ice and fire - cold night hot blood
Spinning
You and me

When we stop the whirling
Dizzily collapsing in a tangle
Thighs and elbows, milk and honey
My skin your skin
My blood your blood
My
Breath
Your
Breath

Breathe for me
Underneath our sky
Bleed for me
Heal when the black is purified with gold

Sunrise to clot the wounds
Moonlight to slit them new
You and me
My
Blood
Your
Blood

You and me

A thousand congrats, a smooch and a pair of angel wings goes to the person that knows whom this poem is about.
