When I woke up
My loins were weeping
With longing for you –
Thick manly tears
Wasted on the banks of distance
The smeared silence of morning
Frustration, the fury of loneliness
Dark has been my desire
As bright as love.
Take me away
I need something stronger than hope.
That’s when my spirit spoke up.
I did not know there were so many daggers
Knifed into my back
Yet I am still alive.
