Beloved, you struck at my heart as it beat to your pulse.
Everyone knew you owned me.
Here in this room, I let you inside me.
I laid waiting for you after, while you hid from the sound of my blood rushing, my heart waiting for warmth to return.
Now, I am readying to enter you–to strike back at you.
Did you know only four inches of blade can reach where love should grow?
You never listened to words, but you will understand.
Our hearts continue to beat as one.
Until they both stop.
An elderly man prepares for the body he has wanted for a lifetime. All he has to do in the transfer is keep his mind.
