(Taste the ashes as you rise,
Now reborn, once more anew.)

Ripple woven laces of the
Rivers I've wrung from your eyes.
Kisses of poisonous paradise,
And at the end of the night you'll want nothing more.

Nail file touches that
Slip smoother than satin
Across your chest.
And that breeze you said felt wonderful
(Cool kisses against the seduced sweat on your cheeks)

Was really hazy with smog.

Remember when I snaked my arms
Around your waist
And you told me you'd never felt so free?
That was really the bricks
Attached to your feet and
The water in your lungs
That released your soul.
