LOVE written by Emily Bilman at



written by: Emily Bilman


Out from the first fern forests
Desire resonates
In us with such want

Our eyes shine
Like fireflies in the night
Our bodies are night-slaves

We are now aroused
To the sexual

As quaint tension in the guts
Seizes you
As my nipples rise

And our bruised bodies
Seek  completion
Through love
