Prisoner Unleashed

Come rest and heal,

Oh wounded one

Whose sleep the long-ago haunting times besiege.

Curl into the warmth of me, to there

Unleash your buried heart.

Slide beside me in the night,

Offer your lips to mine, and

Take in return from me your desires.


Oh longing one,

With your need to hold belov’d the soul of another.

Quell the fears of your imprisoned heart,

The key to that pain-forged lock has already turned,

And the door,

Standing open,


Oh waits ever patient,

For you,

No longer the aching wanderer,

To journey forth into soothing dreams regain'd.
