Overcome me By the flood, of your current Emotions that do not cease. I am stilled, in my place Beside the waterfall that merely shows my reflection, Drifting apart from where I stand. My love has nurtured me, Fed me, Healed me, As where beauty can be seen, There is none to be found. I am stilled by the rain, Frozen in place by my pain. I am adored only in your realm, Though when will you grant me your Hell? I want tears to taste, Not of my own. I want to drown myself in your hair That falls like a curtain Over your shoulders and neck. I wish to breathe the fragrance Of a thousand miles of skin, Milk-white in its translucence. I breathe over thee, The fantastical imagery Of all that stings with shame in me, Of all I taste in such cruel scenery. Take me like the breath that enters the stone. Fall through me Your tears, so I can understand The Hell I've reached has not been deep enough.
