Hear Me Cry My Eulogy


Stay within the warmth of me
and lie at rest – I won’t deny I
feed upon your strength. Lest
you forget I hunger more along
your length and breadth than
orphaned eyes seek succour
from their loneliness. Stay for-
ever meshed, entrained inside
the fluid flow of movements
slow & languorous – blessed
are we to share this trancelike
closeness, caressing moments
infinite without regret. Stay a
while – I’ll drain the venom of
your vigour and digest your
offering. Hold me tight in arms
afraid and breathe my name
in wonderment. Wait a while
and hear me cry my eulogy.
