I am no longer your sanctuary, but still you return to me.

you rose on the mornings tide

the darkness of you flooding over me

pulsing upon the barren rocks of obsessive love

the relentless waves of your crippling emotions

beating blood upon the bolted door of my heart

reeling for recognition of what you once were

you engulfed fleshy extremity

soothing with salacious zeal

seizing the false hope of natures thirst

that passed warm currents between us

in a frenzied fallow flow

that ebbed away

into nothingness

once more
