Effigy

She stuck in me like a shard through the numbness
 “Pick me up,” she said
I liked the way she beckoned
She liked the way I bled

She had the look that had ruined gods
With dark eyes and a temptress air 
She set fire to my virgin Eden
And I burned within in her stare 

And so I took her by the hand—

She was broken as clean as a bone
She said “I am empty, forsaken”
“I am tired of being alone”

My enigma
My sexual effigy 
Stolen from a distant dream 
My inebriation 
My forbidden love 
My incomparable supreme 

I watched wipe the lipstick onto her forearm
And I let her draw me into herself
All night I held her, sleepless 
As the awe began to quell 

For the first time I felt something quiver
And race like an unfettered dream

When she woke, we lie there 
Open

Then it was time for me to leave
