Title: The Prodigal Heart

Through fear of carrying her stench,
I wash my face
and genitals in the sink.
For a shower could fuel suspicious minds

Clothed in a cloak of nonchalance,
Because I love you my darling.
You need not know my weakness, folly.
And love demands I protect you.

Already She is out of mind,
My heart she cannot know.
For yours it is, and has always been
No other can claim the heart of me.

Beside your soft skin at last my love
Your hair my comfort and my joy
Forgiveness whispered under breath
And our fingers entwined in proof.

And lust has no commandment now
My flesh is deaf to its call
Your breast is a refuge from Jezebel's gaze
Sleep well my Darling, My love.
