Here I am Lover
This woman you knew nothing about
But captured your attention nonetheless
Was it my broken beauty that drew you in?
The far off look in my eyes?
Or my Mona Lisa smile?
This silent succubus lies in wait
You’ve stirred her sleep
Seductively she yawns
A tired little moan
I thought she had gone
Until you ignited my skin
Fire like lava seeping out of my fractured body
Resurrected feelings I thought I had long laid to rest
The tracks of my tears left ditches in my cheeks
Until you filled them with soft sand the color of blush
The hunter in me is recovering
Unwrapping bandages from old injuries
Wounds heal in time
Gentle kisses and passionate nights
Are a soothing balm for a scarred soul
The woman you met is not the woman I was
But the woman I am now,
She is going to devour you.
