A hand wandering through my hips,
A map of saliva drawn on my skin,
A few teeth digging in my neck
Which animal enjoying its prey.
It's always been easier for me to open my legs
Than my heart, but your fingers came
To the darkest corner of my soul.
And between your sheets, in the moonlight,
Your gaze opened in channel my body
Undressing in the most complete way.
But when my eyes searched yours
Your most intrinsic truth,
They found an unwavering wall.
I thought in that room
We had devoured each other
When, in fact, I was just bleeding.
