Sacrifice by Sacha Sacket
She comes, she comes inside me
Says I fuck somnambulantly
And the smell of asphalt just hit me.
She builds gardens in her eyes
Spreads her poison ivy thighs
Like she knows vampires well.
I'm her golden haired berserker
She just ball-chained my pitch to a murmur.
So when we run this marathon
She only beats me because she cheats me
She's the tortoise because of my hair
And how did I sacrifice things that I want? You were always
She says I've broken her porpoise heart. Lying sideways
I rode these dreams cause I thought they were sacred I was always
Wake to find that I am just scared, just scared, just scared. Tucked away.
She thinks I would fight her wars for love
But I fashion myself a gangster
I don't believe in any laws on love
So if you are bleeding me
Because I don't give easily
I swear I’m dry.
And how did I sacrifice things that I want?
She says I've broken her porpoise heart.
I rode these dreams cause I thought they were sacred
Wake to find that I am just scared, just scared, just scared.
Tangled in her hair,
Lips unfold limbs as she snakes around me.
Drunk in her olive skin, sweat gleams like stars
Off her body.
And in these carnal juices,
Somewhere I'll find my astrology.
And just when I think I'm believing
Medea hits the air as my words turn to cream
Medea hits the air as my heart starts to scream
And somewhere right there those flames consumed me.
Now she runs, she runs beside me
And how we speak silently.
'Cause that asphalt sure hit me.
For I am a hollow man,
In Eliot's Wasteland,
But now I cry.
