never desert me here

feed the secrets,
      repress regret
      set new levels
entering reject.

Represent the represented
      we need rest.
      sleeplessness renders,

the deserted’s needs best.

Helpless, tense,
       secrets depress deeper,

       hence the neglected feel,

sweetlessness dwells perverse.

They feed me the embers,

      The essence enters there,
      nevertheless we let them
they never desert me here.

                                        never desert me here.
