Stormy Blue

Love You Glass

Your breath is raw and poignant

against my moon pale skin.

It cuts through me as if I 

were made of fabric.

In your arms I am remade

countless times into someone

much more beautiful than I am.


I feel you in everything,

in the miles of uninhabited space

that is my primitive heart.

The compression of our bodies

giving way beneath the stars

presses out the darkness.

So long as you are here

I am occupied in every

conceivable sense.


Beneath your fingertips

my body is a symphony

and all that you are 

floods through me like the ocean,

stormy blue and unprecedented.

When I reached for your hand

I didn’t know that you would

swallow me whole.
