Wow! Powerful stuff. Leah’s writing is wonderful as always. Please check out her blog.
Still I can taste you, even now—
You, who led me to lower worlds
You, who are the origin of my tears
Who made me uniquely vulnerable.”
Who are the Jupiter of
You, who baptize these lies
From my flesh with your fingers
And cleanse me with your gaze
You are the thrum of my blood
And my breath
The axis mundi of my passion
It is you…
Who will bring me to my knees.
