Bleeding nails affix us



I swallow
your nail-studded tongue
and imbibe your invisible words


They lacerate my heart and soul
and my forehead
bears your tongue-lashed


puncture wounds
that only intertwined passion
can heal as we spiral


down lugubrious vortexes
eradicating all partitions
separating flesh from soul
