Your absence sucks the warmth from these sheets,
Curling between my thigh’s, roping around my fingers
Still trembling and gasping
From gentle tugs and rasping bites
Along edges of bone and light
I am frozen on capsizing breath
Of the last words we said
While these sheets of your sighs,
Of our eyes
Forever taking one another in,
Hold me hostage, wrapping around my legs, binding my wrists,
Against the warmth you float away with.
The word of the day when I posted originally was vague.
