Let me find myself inside you.
I want to open you up by the belly
and see the way your organs feed life
into you. I want to stretch my hands deep
into your chest and cradle each beat your
heart makes, and as I listen closely to the
thump-da-dee-thump it whispers through
your veins I want to sing songs to your soul.
I want my fingertips to absorb the way your
skin tastes, that way I am sweetened
by your love. I want to kiss the deepest
edges buried deeply beneath your flesh,
so that my lips remain stained by the
very inscription you have engrained
stitching me together.
