I remember when you swallowed my heart,
and wore my body as your own.

My skin peaked to your touch and
lungs burned for your breath.

I remember your eyes painted me in rapture
as your fingers drew God in my flesh.

Your voice breached my soul’s cipher
and cast out the disquiet of old wounds.

I remember my birth in your arms
and delight became my shadow

until I died.

  1. Reblogged this on Touching Madness and commented:
    A new writer it appears who found me! After reading a few of her poems, I can she her talent far exceeds mine. Just passing along a beautiful, touching, sad piece that hopefully will capture this poet’s talent. If you have the chance, hop on over.

  2. Hi Maggie-

    My name is Christine Ray and I am a managing editor at Sudden Denouement, Blood Into Ink, Whisper and the Roar, Indie Blu(e), and the Go Dog Go Cafe. Sudden Denouement recently started hosting Discover Sundays several times a month, when we post work by exciting non-Collective writers. I would love to post a couple of your pieces on one of our upcoming Discover Sundays. We would of course properly cite you and provide a link to your blog. Would this be okay with you?
