Welcome back, my lovelies. Next on our agenda is an eerie bit of poetry from my partner in crime, Alexandra Christian. I was hoping I’d get her to give me a sneak peak of one of her newest contracts, but sadly she’s holding out on me. Oh, well… maybe later. But until then, enjoy the taste of a “Cold Kiss”.
by Alexandra Christian
Do we sleep alone, still in the darkness,
Or are the shadows our gentle lovers?
I arrive at our marriage bed,
Awaiting the harbinger of your arrival.
No sparrows’ song for lovers long dead
Barely a whisper of air between us
Cool mist boils around bare feet
Traveling along the still ground I see your cairn.
Just a pinprick to call out your name,
A fall of sparkling rubies look like flame against the marble.
Warmth that leaks down between the cool porcelain breasts
Drawing a map to that seat of earthy pleasure.
I lie on the unyielding stone,
Shallow breath pluming from between crimson lips.
“I’m ready,” I whisper,
My words falling weakly to the ground like autumn leaves.
You come upon my body like a fever,
Your cold kiss steals my soul, yet I give it freely.
Skeletal fingers play along the delicate ribs
Alighting on the quicksilver bloodflower.
Hollow sockets meet shallow reflecting pools of blue,
Gazing skyward, eyes pleading for completion.
A phantom pulse deep in my chest, drawing you near.
“Take my heart. It’s always been yours.”
Shadows fall, a veil of darkness drowning the light.
My heart, still wet with sticky warmth, lies still in your hand.
At last we are one, eternal lovers
