Bonsai

Nerveless in bondage

Your diminutive margins

Desecrate my heart

*

To circumvent change

You tether both root and limb

With wire-tongued critiques

Incubus (warning slightly explicit)

incubus_by_j_u_d_a_s-d32ozrx

The moonlight slips unbidden into my womb

It was never my intention to serve him

Between us there is no love

Only the suspicious ache of a pernicious hunger

*

His insignia extends the length of my spinal column

My nerves remember what my eyes cannot conceive

*

In the same way that blood forges hope

By maintaining a predetermined course

He settles deviously on the chest

That the lungs may not drink enough

To arouse resistance

*

He is an intractable savant

The night is his emissary

His bastion as well

He drags his obsidian claws

Across my inner thighs

Thirsting the milk

Of an illegitimate desire

*

Being dreamless he depends solely

On artifice to communicate

It’s such an authentically human trait

To disguise through application

That one cannot but wonder

If he did not exist first as a man

*

Each night astounded by the realization

That one can be multi-orgasmic even in hell

I find my life force slipping like an exclamation

*
