Body and soul hammered with loneliness,
shaking in anger and sadness
about lost years of intimate connection.
I could rip you to pieces
and throw you to the roaring lion
of our hungry madness.
How could I ever want you?
How could I ever despair for you?
What did I do in a pose of submission?
I killed my most precious desire
only to stay with you
and our unworthy selfishness.
