Aleah Dye

Hell Can Be Sexy

Trailing fingers
engulf our trailing
The flames lick
every inch.
Every inch.
Nothing is left sacred.
Which is to say, everything
is made sacred.
Smoke is inhaled,
desperate breaths.
Fire is in our eyes,
and the irises
are reflecting my red
into his, my wants
into his, me into him,

him into me,
pure ignition.

Sore Throat

Climb atop
me and show
me your eyes—I need
to know what you are

Get inside
me and show
me how it is

do you love me?
How hard
do you love me?

There are too many
sounds in
this world for us
not to make new

So talk
to me.
for me.
