Inferno of my soul,
this ivory is burnished
by sweltering flames
of eternal desire
rising from a vision
that frustrates my flesh
and infuriates my mind.
Ravaged by exasperation,
I am consumed by hours
of your absence. O’ jealous
infiltration! She marches
mad with envy through
halls of endless time.
Alas, I wait. This empty
shell whispers your return.
Arrive amid the embers of
my longing, cool my fevered
brow with a touch of adoration
as you carry your fair lover
to be burnt away to ash.
