Love & Possession: The Dark Set (Week 3)-Hauntings


He called to me

in whispers so low

that only God could hear.

This low, incessant growl

and at the thought of him

and the divine together

of he and I

my body opens and hums.

The sounds low and deep

resounding and full,

as any harp plucked

delicate and sweet–

skills known only

to masters of instruments.


At the opening of my eyes,

only to shut them again.

I realize that I am not

of my own.
