Tonight’s the night I invade your repose,
Then in your flank I’ll carve a gaping fold,
And reach within; your throbbing heart I’ll hold,
I’ll plant in it, once more, Love’s steady glows.
I’ll pour my venom into you; thus flows
Your virgin blood so painful to behold.
I heal your wound! Our bodies will turn cold,
And with a kiss those bloodied cuts will close…
I love you still, in worship and in need,
You are my goddess, I the simple creed.
I’ll take your dreams by force of raw desire,
Oh! be you mine, until our breaths expire?
…In deep sadness I watch all come to naught.
In you, I hope, I’ll never be forgot.
