I had a wall once
’round a fortress made of stone
wherein I was safe

I had a wall once
to which you walked up boldly
no weapon, no shield

I had a wall once
and thought the gates rusted shut
until you stepped through

I had a wall once
but it fell in disrepair
I was lost in you

I have no wall now
it’s but rubble ‘neath the grass
I’m okay with that

I have no wall now
will you help me build a fence?
that should be enough

You’re my raven-haired goddess who swallowed the sun,
sisterlover to my lunar body.
Let me warm myself on the hearth of your breast;
let me melt into your polished amber curves.
And when you doubt yourself,
let your radiance cast me in light and shadow;
I will show you the reflection of your beauty on my face.
