Another Valentine's

By Fabrice Poussin

Another Valentine's

It had been long since first
they toasted to a new year
another Valentine's to remember
by the river over the sharp cliffs
magenta and silver rocks
defense to their previous haven.

Alone in the multitude of strangers
lost souls on the verge of another collapse
they seemed to glow with renewed days
facing the blinding truth of a star
on the edge of what mysteries
the morrow may yet soon reveal.

They braced each other with arms
sharp as razors upon the naked breast
and cut deep inside the beloved bodies
another test to an uncertain destiny
a ruby paste began to flow to the river
as a reddish curtain rose to hide the scene.

Contemplating an absolute ecstasy
their lips touched in eternal glee
now that time had set them at last free
they took flight above the great abyss
hers or his, the essence had become one
of the same flesh they bled now to infinity.
