before dawn [poetry]

She adores the darkness around them

The deep universe held away

By living walls that move, breathe, shiver

Arms and legs and bent heads

Protecting the only fire left in the entire world

The only source of everything

The only source of their heartbeats

The world drones on

Drowning in its own gray silence

Blind, deaf, tongueless

She clings to what she knows

His hands on her waist

Her lips on his neck

The darkness does not matter here
