Scarlet Dream

Knowing your sorrow, I surrender with compassion
You paint my lips and nose scarlet
I wipe away the symbols of our desire
And give you the key to my house

Outside in the embrace of Matrimony
Enemies spy weakness, asleep
Undefended and raped, hard won evidence
I return home seeking comfort
But the door is locked and you not there

I deserve my love.
