Treasure Island

Empath In flames

(29.08.1985 / Australia)

[Lust vs. Desire]

I look over my shoulder,
I see this Smile,
I hunger for.
She looks deep within my soul.
Ecstasy my body reads.
She walks away, stops… then stares to inspect me.
Does she want me to follow?
I would walk on glass shards to reach for her.
As my bloody footprints are left behind.

The further I travel,
The darker the world becomes.
My confidence soars,
Like an unwritten note of love.
I can see her shadow…

I walk towards her, as she kisses me
I can feel the coldness on her lips.
Her breath shutter’s as her eyes tun to midnight.
Our bodies entwined,
By a vigorous energy of a heated passion.
As she bites my lower lip, and cuts my back.
With her black finger nails.

I can smell death in her hair.
The pain is so sensual,
As she digs her teeth deep in my neck,
She asks If I wish to live…
Immortally in her arms.
She slowly drains me.
As I slowly fade,
I tell her in my weakest breath.

“I want to die for you, ”

“So I can live again…
Only knowing you”

Now it is I who lust’s, for the taste of blood.
While she desires for me.

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

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;
