Burn ’em

Burn ‘em
   burn the cards you find
   that call you lover, playmate, amour, soulmate
Burn ‘em all
One nightmare ends so
   another may begin
The pearls you rejected shine delicate
   and white
   with the moon
“I’m so glad you’re here”
She lies
“Tell me we’ll never stop doing this”
She lies
The currents of memory flow back
She brings my head to her breast
   and I suck her nipples, then
She sucks my cock and then
   I take her from behind
Clearly, this is paradise
Only one direction
Part of me still aches for you
I’ll take my love
   where I find it
