If I drowned myself in red wine
would that be enough blood
to make you mine?

If I stayed drunk on the memories
of your hand wrapped around my throat
the smell of you and me


If I was intoxicated
by your dance….
completely hypnotized
in a trance…

the wine bottle is empty
and another cork is popped…

wait. stop.

it’s not enough

I down red wine
I down glasses

red drips from my lips
as my eyes glass…over….

I see you now.

you’ve finally come
once I could no longer defend myself

your hand wrapped around my throat
our smells becoming one…

it is done…

a single drop of wine trails down my chin and neck….

I beckon you yet…

Make me feel something, the wine has made me numb.
