pearls

my love, lie close

Posted in nothing special by maggie on 2008/01/01

my love, lie close to me one last time
let your dreams find rest in these arms of mine
i'll carve your name on my secret thigh
and my breast shall be for your receiving

i know, my love, that i've loved you wrong
i should not have come where i don't belong
a drunkard's cough in an angel's song
and my breath only meant for its teasing

yet deeply sleep in this holy bed
where desire and promise were softly led
and when you wake every word i've said
will be lost in the sound of my leaving

moonlight, you're all but gone
this room so dark of the things i've done
midnight, come and take me home
take me home to my lady moonlight
