In your room

by Jean Jones


You give me pools of living water
and I allow you to drink my blood
for the second time that night…
and after you drain me again
I look and marvel at your room,
this most intimate place,
where we commit intimate things with each other,
you surrender your body to me,
I surrender my body to you,
and we both lie exhausted afterwards,
our eyes looking up at your room,
this most intimate place
where we commit intimate things with each other,
you surrender your body to me,
I surrender my body to you,
our eyes looking at each other,
You give me pools of living water
and I allow you to drink my blood
for the second time that night…
