he made love to you
while trying to find her,
looked at you
as though your eyes
will reveal the reason
for her departure.

kissed you like your lips
were burning with her name
your moans gathering
he tried to find her tune.

you stayed, didn’t you?
tried to show him
what lies within you
is better than what she offered.

you stayed, didn’t you?
held his head
looked into his eyes
screaming in anger
“i am here! i am here! look at me!”

and

darling, you soon learnt,
she branded her being
through his blood
to the beginning of his soul.

you foolishly
offered flowers
to a man
seeking water.
