noxious embrace

this ache
stains the sky

i want to run
but i brace myself

within
your arms

stunned
by the acrid tone

from your berry
lips

every word
a blade

piercing the solace
of our embrace

your hand on my back
now a claw

i abandon
my knowing

to a blank hope
for more

i stay
i stay

inside the hissing
i love you

as it coils
around my throat
