You Are My One And Only Abyss - Poem by Mark Heathcote
I am an atom, what are you
Aren’t you an atom too?
Aren’t we both two magnets?
Colliding, coming together.
Oh, you know I can’t turn away
You know why, I came today.
I am, water, I am your tears
Collected I won’t evaporate!
At least not until, we’re both
Drenched, not until, we’ve quenched
Every pool within your garden,
Not until, I have kissed you.
Am I not an atom, how can I leave you?
Till I’ve discovered the meaning of bliss,
You are my atomic magnet:
You are my one and only abyss.
In your arms I am touched by a poisoned lance
My only wish is you’d cut deeper & slash my wrists.
