What is Surrendered Becomes Spoils.

my Lover is an early Spring night.
on this countenance have
the stars set their stares.

she is candlelight reflections
on your soap slick back, ransacked
by mirroring droplets of water.

i will rouse her from rest
and bring her to my side, rib to
rib, legs twisted. skin on skin.

a cobweb of carmine strands,
left tarnished by the Adulteress’
cords. bound tightly in knots at the end.

at the end of all things, there is
still she, naked in bouncing bands
of wick burnt sunlight. succumbed

to herself. resigned to give away
soul separated skin, inside, lightless.
surrendered to a man such as me.

and what is surrendered becomes spoils.

  1. and wham! down for the count!

    you totally sucked me in with that first line and then the very ‘glowing-ness’ of that first stanza and then I found myself thinking you can’t have followed up with anything better than that but lo and behold! you just build upon that first stanza like an unbearable thirst and now here I am, ‘spoils’

    in other words, good job 😉
