O beautiful spirit covered in man
Will you bleed away your sorrows
In the palm of my hand?
Will you cry to me your songs of love?
Will the darkness shine when your eyes are shut?
Will you treasure my kisses of breath
On the nape of your bare neck?
Will you be absolute and pure with me
As I bleed with you for eternity?
I need to know your ebony sky,
Before I accept with an ivory ‘aye’!
