Love Me Fiercely. {Poem}

lovers in bed


is not a night for making love

for fingertips gently brushing


soft kisses and gentle breaths.

There is time enough

in life for that.

Tonight, love me hard:

devour me like the apocalypse

is coming and this is the last time you will

inhale the scent of me or savour my skin.

Hold me like you will never, ever

have the flesh of another being close to yours again.

Memorize me with fierce touches,

hold my face between your palms

and burn my image

on your retinas.

Feast on me like you are a prisoner sentenced to death

and I am your last meal.

Let us love like we are on a sinking ship

and we know there is no rescue boat.

If there is darkness, let me go into it

with my burning limbs intertwined with yours,

and your name echoing in my ears.
