You dared to begin
And you did not stop
Undressing me when I was naked.
You took off my skin
And crawled inside me
While my love
Was crying inside you.

I did my best
To dress again
In skin that no longer fit me.
But I took you home
Behind my eyes
Then filled them
With the sight of another.

I was careless, it seems
When I dressed in haste
And I did not swallow you whole.
There are parts of you
Stuck all over my skin
And I tear
As I try to remove them.

Too late to heal
With this lonely flesh
The wounds I left in your body,
Love bleeds.
