The nights get anxious when they think of me.
The days await dusk for a momentous sigh of relief
The cold gets chills when I speak, when I whisper.
I want to break into a monologue, maybe a hum, maybe a wail
And tell my secrets.
I want to...
That last day in April,
You will remember the fire that was in my eyes, dancing
But then you were the water carelessly extinguishing it.
That last day in the cold of April
You will look at the hearth and think of me
And your efforts to make a...
Who hopes to find water amidst a fire?
To quell a fierce rage, so fiery

When the arousals demanded pleasure.
The once pretty pink petals
Picked and pricked at a price!
Ravishing strokes of manhood.
Drinking from the nectar fountain.
Once learning to love on the back,
While earning in lust.
Oh the dark alleys,...
