Childish displays of unseen flesh
And a finger pressed against soft lips
Be quiet now, be quiet

I’m bathed in red wine light
Drunk off your ego again
The bitterness fresh on my tongue

I hate you, you’re sure
I know this
And pledge your love again
See if I still bleed

He hold his breath
And the pause is baptism
Rejections flow like the Nile
And I lay down on your alter
Time after time again
