Sucking me dry

In a past

long gone

getting into bed

with you

at first

was hard.

I fought the tug

pulling me closer

reeling me in

You got me

like nobody else

on those tempestuous nights

Our bodies


My conscience

scorching the corners of my

oblivious mind

Old flames turned into

an inferno

lighting up our


My being


until melting


into a pile

of ashes

whisked away like dust

like the purpose was always

to be
