The Lorena Letters

have you still kept that knife?
don't rinse off the blood. i still can hear that sweet groan.
you wrote in the pages of the book of love. late at nights, we'd read
the instant our raging blood boiled and gushed together
with hurried, impatient breath.

you take pleasure in being defenceless.
just like the fish that you've kept inside your womb -
flailing about within the pulverising strength of desire
