Wedding night

Frozen tears
led him to my bed,
eyelids kissed
as silence

takes his bride
with hunger,
nuptial feast;
confused heart

is devoured,
forgets happiness,
blood rushes
between breasts

in darkness,
fingers slide
over a garter,
taking control

of burning skin,
scarring flesh
with kisses,
bouquet flowers

laying discarded
on the floor,
soft petals
weeping quietly.
