once for love


curved like a sliver of moon 

silver as the fin of the sea  

I slide in between the darkness

in the pools of your eye 

where the crow sits watching  

my name is iris 

I am the bruising of twilight time 

dawn and dusk I come to you 

as a lovers breath

warm between your blades of steel 

sinking into deep sleep 

I am the hook 

You catch I hold 

full moon 

we chance the tides 

of time 

to eclipse a sun 

our love burns 

till star dust 

the winds will scatter 

reborn to rise

from the depths

we dived  

once for love
