The Most Faithful Lover

The Most Faithful Lover

You there…always
As long as I can remember
My first sensations, first dashing plunging
Baptism into this world.
Throbbing
Smashing
Lurking
Slinking
Smiling
Pitying
Accompanying

Always there…du dum. du dum. du dum.
Keeping time, making time, marking time
Rhythm of your horned hard and callous crusted
Feet.

You have kept me from death
Though your price is high
you have brought me to life
Heeding nary a cry

And now, grown
you sit with me comfortably
At peace, and I with you
My most faithful lover…

Pain
