Vulnerable

Vulnerable…

With every touch
You place on me

My eyes plead
for you to see me

You drink my heart
as it bleeds…

but what you savor
is not me

just shattered fragments
of the her….

….That lives inside me…



…Still I believe
I am the woman
of your darkest dreams

With every capability
of being your moonbeam

But I can’t get a ray of light
to catch your eye
even in the dead of night…


…I feel cursed
Loving you…

Knowing for her
You had it worse…

It doesn’t hinder
the yearning for the taste
of your soul burning
on the edge of my lips

Or the addiction to the feel of
your strong hands
On my crystal skin

Chiseling me—
Into the her you
Wish me to be.


Suffocate
Whenever I’m alone…

Because,
You’ll never know…

How your kiss
etches my skin

How my heart quickens
To the song of your laughter

Or how it sets
a cold fire deep within


…I cannot run
I cannot hide...

You’re the only one
I can’t deny…

You shatter me
With your touch

Whisper silver secrets
that shroud me in silk

Casting Blue chills to my chest
Whenever we undress

and turn me into ice
With your arctic breath…


The places of me
That were once sweet

Tastes bitter now
with a hint of deceit.

Wonder
if you could-
if you…

Could see
the pain in me

As I watch your eyes
Projecting…

The she onto me
As I lay

Naked….
…Exposed

Vulnerable…
and undisguised,
On your green sheets…

      Thank you Hari!

      It flowed out of me.... The tough thing wondering if I should share it, I am glad I did.
