The bed.

 

first:

he braids my hair
with threads of silver

 

second:

he puts lilac petals
down my spine

 

third:

he leaves yellow marks
on my memory foam skin.

 

 

The floor.

 

first:
my body grinds
like a mill of desire

 

second:

I beg bitterly,
with silenced eyes

 

third:

strong arms
refuse to face defeat.

 

 

The door.

 

first:

his eyes change
from ocean to iron

 

second:

posessed hands
spread my legs

 

third:

honey tongue.
nauseous bones.

 

fourth:
my hands are tied
to the walls of his cage.
