River of Fire

We two echoes put to flesh
Lovers afore life and death
Astride a river of fire
Alight with raving desires

I am gorgonian stone
On this bitter bank alone
Enspirited by your gaze
You unmake night into day

Until our eyes come apart
Like the dark between the stars
The river flares blinding bright
Inferno sunders our sides

I am ever silhouette
Promised a shadow in debt
For the love we dare not spend
Two hearts too fiery to rend.
