holding you

I held everything




Contribution to Ylvas different love poem challenge

 

 

There are blemishes  where your touch burned my skin

Heat rash  even on the inside of my mouth

Exhaling and inhaling  the sulfur of how your mind works

 

 

Days spent in each other   and in the coldest lakes

As two drowning people  making love under water

No frost known to man can stop you   from melting  me

Caressing my every iced vein  into magma

Earth revolves  as kingdom falls   when you pull me close

 

 

 

 

to  the silence   of ashes to ashes       dust to dust
