Sire Me.

A myth

All that you were

A spectre

Of ink and imagination

A wish between my pages

For so long I believed in you

And now I know you’re real

A desire

What you have become

A need

My eager blood thrums

A pulse waiting

For so long I waited for you

And now I know you’re near

My love

I bare myself to you

My virgin neck

Unmarred and pure

A willing servant

Too long I’ve lived without you

And now you are my end

Sire me

And be my new
