Within

by Anonymous

Burrowed within
Clothed by fear
Nothing from without
Can enter

Hide!
From all,
Keep them close,
Yet keep within,
Secured.
Impenetrable.

She sticks a wedge in
Shaking the core
Undefining defined
Grasping within

I traded me in, gave away the hold
Loosened my grasp, fear falling back
Gated within and closed off
Yet she lept within

To her,
I caved in,
She grasped the whole
First to view
First,
Allowed to answer,
Accept or reject

Laying bare
Bodies pressed against
Bodies from within
Conjoined
Reformed
Reshaped
Pressed
Felt

Hand on stomach
Thigh
Pure
Hair textured breast
Caressed

She looked in my eyes
Sweet assurance
Easing
The pain
The fear
We trusted her
Her and I
She and I trusted
In her

Heart permeated
Pounding, pounds

Skin prickles, hair on end
Nothing so beautiful
before
Tearing myself down
For access,
To receive
From her
Slept on her chest
Forever possessed

She sang to sleep
A cooling breath
A breath and another
Cold relaxation
Time, no obstacle
Paused
In silence
Caress
So dear
Eyebrows sink in peace

Into Your hand I commit my spirit
Law I held dear
Forgotten
For You

BLASTED OUT LOUD
REJECTION

The answer is no
And She yells from the hills
From the mountains
Injected with poison
Trembling with fear

Into Your hands I committed my spirit
