I sit here waiting
Behind the shadows
Of candlelight,
Like a sacrifice
To the gods of
Love and blood,
Warm dinner in the oven
Warm body under the gown
No perfume he says
It gives him sinus,
A heart racing back and forth
Between passion and pain
I don’t know which
Man will come home
To me tonight,
Maybe a lover
Maybe a bully,
My mind has learned
To expect the worst,
But my soul longs
For the one I fell
In love with
