INCARNADINE

Sometimes I wonder

Who do you see?

When I’m undressing

And when I sleep

I know these mysteries

Invisible fields
Which part awakens?

When you’re drawn to me?

If you want my baby
Quell this fire
The river has to flow from

Deep inside
Love
Incarnadine
And when you’re looking at me

Every part
I paint a picture
On your silence
The colours that we hide

Incarnadine

I don’t have pale blood
It’s not milky white
The red, ceaseless currents

Of my desire

Not just a mother

Would I disappear

Into the ether?
As days became years

If you want my baby
In your arms
Play a melody to
The ruthless beat of my heart

Incarnadine

Buried rages

The root of life

These soft explosions

This can never die

Love

Incarnadine
