Black Oracle

Savage Ceremony

She danced in tranquil motion
The river gentle at first
Every particle of body
Consumed and caressed her

They danced within that moment
Until desire awoke from the depths
Difference dissolved into waters
Dismal, full of regret

And the forest, it echoed moments
Lost lust & hopes to forget
She drowned within that moment
And the leaves, they creaked with distress.

They had seen this misfortune
Crown it’s ghastly head
Entangled in the rhythm
Of the motions once again

Conceived in consummation,
A starless space at rest
Impious emotion
In a womb of contempt

And the forest, it echoed moments
Lost lust & hopes to forget
She drowned within that moment
And the leaves creaked with distress

And the dark cosmos of the womb
Yielded more than simply stardust
A savage ceremony
Fueled simply by lust

“Why are you upset?”

The silence gathered
and
I parted my lips,
“Because I say things I wish I never said.

I do things I wish I never had done.

But most of all, because I’m afraid to share them.”

We stared blankly at one another. The wind interjected and I walked away wishing I didn’t.
