Dark Stranger

You whoever you are

you have taken my love away

you have entered my soul like a stranger

 

like a stranger clothed in darkness

an oil spill from my shipwrecked love

you have entered my heart

 

like a lump of tar inside my shell

dark stranger and instead of a pearl

I find in the chamber of my throbbing

 

a growing lump of black

 

Tomorrow I shall go down to the sea

open my shell a chink, wash your gloom

from my heart.  Dark stranger

 

whoever you are, return to the depths

to the bones of wrecks sinking in the silt

tomorrow I will be freed of you

 

as my body splits empty on a sun baked shore

bleached free of darkness, free of love
