I Love You Now

I love you now,
My black rose.

I didn't then.


A face down-turned,
A smile that hid from me.
Evidence, of the bitterest heart.

Brought together,
Through choices forced,
And not our own.

A ceremony,
An I do,
With icy hearts,

We were one.


Cold you were,
And cold our house,
In need of a smile, a laugh--
As the Sahara thirsts,
For a drip

Of a drop.


Your eyes:
Beady. Gray. Cold.
Piercing even my soul,
A dagger you yield,
Made of stone.

Love so lost--
Now found.

Your pale distant face,
Hawk-eyes still and blank.
The blood on my hands,
My knife in your chest.
Yes--

I love you now.
