Your eyes Find splits in the Earth, Find pain where marriage should maintain Itself, in the openness. I swallow whole Like the Earth with its crust The lakes that formed from your melting eyes, For I am always tasting your tears, As I am always feeling your fears. You consume the guilt, Feel the depression, You want the noose to hold you tighter Than ever did my arms. You wash this world in your depravity, While I nourish you In the world's lacking salvation. What has broken the banks on the river's edge To flood the roaming universe? What had soaked through your clothing With tears? Should we not have worked, for blood? Your eyes have been melting for ages. Upon the mountain of your heart Sits those heated glaciers, Moving as they would to make the quivering mouth, Trembling arms, Among those closed eyes That only hurt, because sadness is where you feel free.
