Territory – Poem by Amazon Syren July 29, 2010

Posted by vscorpiozine in Uncategorized.


I pour liquid
over your breathless body,
Marking my territory with teeth
and tongue.

an act of adoration, this
but also a laying of claim,

your body

your breath

the arch of your back,
flex of your thigh,
your every gasp
and groan
to me.

-Amazon Syren
