The loosening of the belt
Tousle of hair, sheen sweat on flesh

Sprawled about the pelt
Tell me how it felt
Those sweet caresses in the candle-light

My heart melt
Promises of light

The loosening of the belt
Aches and sorrow begins at night

Sprawled about the pelt
Blood permeates the site

Tell me how it felt
The forlorn lash in the dark, with all your might

Beaten, Bruised and Broken
Abandoned in plight

Thy skin marked in fight
A lone, residual welt

My heart melt
Promises vanished in sight
