Wordy Wednesday: from Words to her Lover by Gillian Allnutt

from Words to her Lover by Gillian Allnutt
….
Desist, she said,
Mocking his open fist.
I have given you my bones to keep.
I will sleep like the earth in you.
I’ve given you my eyes, though
they are stones,
My apple heart with its green
sleeves.
I’ll sing you a song like a river
flowing,
Give you the sea that grieves in me
Like broken things forgotten.
I would stir the earth for you
Like a great wind blowing.

But I am going where the moon
goes now
When he has finished sewing up
the sky
And sits and eats stars
On the other side.
