Arms of mine, I love you, for you circled his neck In a supple embrace of languid tenderness. Fingers of mine, I love you for being so perfect In dispensing the slow pleasure of a caress. Brow of mine, I love you; you bring back the echo Of my thoughts with his closely entwined; Lips of mine—though now faded—I love you so, And even more for having bled under his bite.
