Lilith & a Lover

lilith sleeps with Me tonight,
her eyes glinting in the dim light,
planting kisses on My bare collarbone
her teeth leave foxglove growing on My skin

lilith’s lips chap My own,
leaving ashes in their wake
she honeys My skin with her fingernails
harsh gasping, shared breaths

I am not her adam;
she is not My samson
we do not leave each other holy
we do not leave each other bloody

we leave each other shaking & gasping
I am glad that she slipped into My bed
our stories are not written in any myth
our stories are written on the skin of the other
