Blood Rose

House of Heart

The night is wet

drops of rain glisten

on the slick sidewalks.

In my hurry I dodge

the dark puddles that

Glisten in the misty glow

of amber street lamps

There is a trace of rosy

blood where I have bitten

my lip but my eyes brim

with life and nonsensical love

When we meet we smile

and kiss silvery lashes

The taste of blood rose on

shivering lips

For the moment we forget

You want too much and

I will take whatever you give.

” I love you, I love you,

Like a fool, like a soldier

Like a movie star

I love you, I love you

Like a wolf, a king,

Like a man that I am not.

I love you like that”

*English lyrics to” je t’aime ” written by Serge Gainsbourg
