It is in your nature to submit.

You are not just the thing itself
But the symbol of the thing

And in giving yourself
You become Giving.

Lose none of yourself -
No essence, odor or remainder.

You are of this world,

But made too
Of the sky and the shadows.

To possess you,
To hurt you in the meanwhile,

Is to possess the sky
And hold dominion over shadow.

For one such as I,
With nothing,

No nature
But the end of nature

It is a bliss

It is
A tear taken away.

No wonder
You are the object of lethal lust.

To expire
As we kill -

The perfect expression
Of Life.
