Recasting ‘Deglaciation’ by Unbolt

Note: Thank you to Unbolt for this privilege!

Deglaciation Recast

your hand upon my heart
is the inter-celestial part
of everything that protects —
hide me; abide with me —
the gaping melted hole
in the centre of my soul,
where holds balm in bowl.

please, don’t remove your palm
my only calm; sweetly sooth,
because without your warmth
my heart is nothing more than
spirit whore for black dæmon;
best nest for rest and thrill
and shrill of festive crows

black attack from sack of hell!

and I melt away this day to flood with icy blood
without your hand upon my heart, the inner-celestial part.
