I remember you.
Bones and Eyes and blood and teeth and muscles
Your Hair was like mine.
It was thick and dark and smooth, but it was shorter
I was within you.
They were my bones.
They were mine and yours
We shared the pain,
Your fingers twitched like mine.
Your legs they walked like mine.
Your hands they carved our body into ribbons.
All of yours was mine,
Not all of mine was yours.
I pushed and howled and thrashed and bled and beat you.
I take on both our pain, the light it charred my flesh before I loved it.
The light, the pain, the joy, the life, the body.
I stood the best I could.
I held you in my arms so I could heal you.
And when the light,
Put me on my knees,
What hurt me then rose out in calm dominion.
I loved you when you left bruises on my throat.
I loved you when you slept.
I love you now and forever.
