Oh Lady Cold, behold the night.
Become some godless awful fright.
Oh Lady Warm, become divine,
And hold your body close to mine.
Oh Lady Silence—Lady Death
Become these thoughts, become my breath.
Breathe our night, guide we blind.
Our passion now we intertwine.
We misconstrue antipathy
Thus breeds in us some sympathy
I taste the essence, taste the sin—
My hand upon your clammy skin.
Within your eyes you tantalize
The flesh of purity’s cold demise.
Oh Lady Sweet and yet discreet
A fire below scalds your feet.
Your face—a bright blue tapestry
With the silence breaks calamity.
An altar there of ecstasy
Sits deep below within the sea.
Lady Justice awaken me
Keep the sin with the sea.
Expose the tongue I yearn to kiss,
And so stay still precarious.
Oh Lady Strong—Lady Bold
Stand forthright still without your soul.
From my partition I have desire
To know you here within the fire.
Oh Lady Dark, inhale the mist
Damn me with forlorning kiss.
Lady Strong—Lady Bold
Looking young but feeling old,
Shed on me dark agony,
And take my fucking purity.
