Keeping it In

By: The Vampire Sweets


In the sheer, tremulous abandon
of my deepest desires
there is you.
There is liquid and cream, and unforgettable you
I see myself in parted agony,
and I expect the world to start falling away
from sacred streets, and
private passages.
Open ended happiness
swings into my life with no plans to stay
so I turn myself over to you
while I can.
The river opens up in my head and you become me
We become one
in melted, frantic desire.
