Awakening

I dream of a bleeding river,
its torrent a soft caress across my face
My helpless need is ripe for plucking,
leaving a dying hunger that I cannot satiate
Why have you left me to languish in this
vulgar and decrepit state?
One final cry escapes my mind to
travel across the thread that binds us
I ache for the purity of your touch,
a longing so unnatural it burns my core
A final breath escapes my lips,
and I seep into a nothingless void

In my moment of exquisite death, you stand,
peering into my hollow abyss
You step softly into these dark hours,
holding the ancient secrets of a lurid dance
The pure air explodes in a sanguine frenzy,
feeding my one, resurrected desire
The pain wraps its tendrils around this once
beating heart, made quiet and without longing
I am pulled from the ragged edges
of sunlight, burned with a fevered disregard
I am now breathless in a static world, acutely
aware that I am soulless in my awakening
