Will You?

If I enclose this love in a ferocious cage,
Will you still recognize it as love at all?
Will you still know what its ferocity means?
Or if my desire appeared as a flaming rage,
Will it still consume you with such delicious heat?
Will you still open yourself to my plunder and pain?
Will you take the thunder and hunger of my love,
And tease it apart to discern those tender threads,
That run like veins through my body and down my face like tears.
And will you know I’m dumb with darkness and emotion and everything there is,
And so cling to me and bite me till you make me suffer too?
Beyond pleasure, beyond logic, beyond the edge of squirming words.
Because Night is at the door,
Night is at the bedroom door.
And I need to let him in.
