My Asphyxiation

You have me asphyxiated

in your cruel embrace.

A roving grasp over a virgin map,

trailing valleys and hills,

Smothering me

in your sweet

Musk

that spurns me.

Ravenous hands were really meant,

To claw into my flesh

and find the thing that beats.

A bounty for the return.

I can't let you go.

You've already delved yourself

Into me.
