Come and Lie with Me
By Elsie A. Gidlow
 
(From The Pagan, 1920)

COME and lie with me and love me,
Bitterness;
Touch me with your hands a little,
Kiss me, as you lean above me,
With your cold, sadistic kisses;        5
Wind your hair close, close around me,—
Pain might dissipate this blankness;
Hurt me even, even wound me;
I have need of love that stings.
Come and lie with me and love me,        10
Bitterness,
So that I can laugh at things.
