When I feel I’m coming apart,
My seams loosen, dissolve in the hot
Water of the shower
And I get a bit stifled and my breath gets
Low in my chest-
That’s when I think of your hand.
Big and long along with soft thumbs,
Run along my red lips.
I ache to feel it clip in my mouth,
To show you how I love you.
I keep my eyes closed and tight,
All of me is here right now to feel
The pound and pull of you and us
You bit my neck and my knees get
Weak and air escapes my lungs.
And I feel your teeth smile against my skin,
Because you say like it when I whimper.
