Magnet Poetry*


         I am a goddess
         under blackness
         never worship my thinking

         beneath the sorid wanting
         lies the essential vision

         you ache, cry
         yet through the weakest moment
         you ask who watches death

         in its still void
         you moan in need
         for eternity

         here life is but a knife
         ripping delicate skin
         eating away
         leaving you raw

         if none could scream
         would we boil in sin
         like water near the sun?

         stare at me always
         fall at my urge

         after I am gone
         it is over
         no one will take my place
