dawn of your winter
JKWeb

my heart is a candle
 1
alight with the fire
 2
of your bipolar love
 3
 
 
it’s brightest on your darkest nights,
 4
wax dripping
 5
on your delicate skin
 6
 
 
my heart flickers
 7
from the gentle breeze
 8
of your northern wind
 9
 
 
flame dies
 10
by bitter tongue
 11
with your primal need
 12
to hibernate
 13
 
 
you pry each rib
 14
from my juniper sternum
 15
and sleep in the hollow
 16
of my catacomb chest
