Bones

a whisper into my ear
is all I need to know
where you are, are not
to follow you
where you go

there you are inside my head
my marrow
my heart
my toes

my skin wears you
like a robe of lust
to tear it off
would peel me
from my bones

chattering chills
emptied and shorn
articulated anatomy
naked and born

if I am free of you
then nothing
is left
of me

    1. Thanks so much! It’s quite the image…I swear I don’t know where they come from, my brain surprises me sometimes. I’m sure you know the feeling! 🙂

      1. It is quite the image but so apt! I know what you mean. Sometimes a phrase just comes to you and you have to get it down! 🙂
