// exposure //


I want to violate you
spend lifetimes invading the sharp blades of the lightning
mind of you,
feel the snowy nights rising in the quiet undressed
consume the last discarded scraps of the hopes
reach for you in your pale moon skin
as you float away in a midnight ocean,
rupture the veins in the madness of your
beautiful crooked thought patterns as they
throb at your fingertips,
feed you word after word after word on every
page of my foolish
as the wolves lie in wait all around the
muscle, bone, and blood
I want to
collect you, spread you wild the way storm clouds curl and rage
and divide themselves again and again
overtaking a desperate
desolate landscape, the thirst
reflected in my blue almond
desert eyes.
I want to capture you
captivate you;
make you feel
at home
inside this tiny
little rib
that hangs in the creature of my
at the center of the
endless falling sky

    This is amazing. I love the contrasts with some of the harsh language- violate, consume, rupture- and the overall sweeping feeling of love. Just really beautiful.
