In This Bed


In this bed

We will fall

Up until dawn

Whispering secrets of tomorrow

My head on your arm

My hand on your chest

I like your eyes

I like how you never take it

Off of me, never

The thing on your throat

Reminds me of the tip of the sword

—So beautiful

Let’s stay like this

Forever

Forever, remember?

They will be just jealous

They must be

In this bed

We will fall

Your bloodstains

—Our witnesses

I love you

I love you

I love you

(Inspired by the short story A Rose for Emily by William Faulkner)
