Ache


The ache of my bosom
Is such, that it needs
The bite of your teeth
To make it ache
More and more…

And with this
Aching bosom,
My love, when I
Take leave of you,
The mark of your
Teeth - will always
Remain with me…

Making me ache
For you ~
Forever more…

    My bosom bleeds
    yet I feed
    yes, the touch of the infant teeth
    it hugs it quite desperate
    that my forget my aches
    and milk the hapless babe

    when the babe chews it
    I cry in pain
    the mischief it plays again
    yet my mother does not refrain
    to shower divine power to drain........ (Report) Reply

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
