the dark sidled up to me

slyly clasped my hand

whispered of sweet


pledging end to agony

if I would acquiesce


the dark curled up

spooning me

in my fetal curvature

humming hymns


lily scented nihilism


the dark became

quite forward

slipping off my skin

while I was drowning


the dark was inching in


I’d heard about the prowess

dark boasts of,

as a suitor

obviating stronger

souls than I

in abysmal seduction


plumbing primal


I evaded dark’s

hot breathed ardor

choosing cold loneliness

o’er dark as my lover
