Wilder Flowers

“I have faded into the habit of secretly existing under your skin. It is unbelievably dark under there; I am happy.” — Katherine Mansfield, from The Letters of Katherine Mansfield

Don’t come to me thinking
I want what’s best for you.
I have an emptiness in me,
and before it pleases,
it hunts.

Nikushoku Tori

“A kiss is the beginning of cannibalism.” — Georges Bataille, Erotism: Death and Sensuality

Before you touched me,
I was a cage full of
wild things.

My mother used to say,

‘be wary of wolves,
they can smell
the beds of lambs
from miles away.’

so every night
I would sleep naked
and wake up smelling of the moon,
for my mother never knew,
that it is not the wolf
who sleeps with the lamb,
it is the lamb who must first learn
how to run with the wolves.

What I’m trying to say is,
I always wondered
what hell would feel like.
I just never imagined
that I would love it
so goddamn much.

— Pavana

“I want to do things so wild with you that I don’t know how to say them.” — Anaïs Nin
