gravely i'd remembered you 
with hints of a sudden pastorial 
past time crawling beneath 
your craving energies as tangled 
grapevines a tantalizing ore
i'd awakened the sullen must 
beyond your weathered tones 
beating as hidden drums 
quietly calming my inner most needs 
where i'd bestowed the memories 
of you capturing my chafed being 
borrowing seduction from future 
joys cringing above your 
beckoning sighs ravishing 
naught why you taunted my space 
i'd believed in safety an yet 
your wrath ripped my soul apart 
leaving my heart bleeding 
under the sole of your feet
