SKIN

(revised late night thoughts // 01.05.2017)

***

her skin is soft
and also scared
stretched thinly showing purple veins
– blooming like lavender in June
and fears and secrets and slowly fading pain
so when you feel her skin
know that it is more than solely touching her
it’s the images glimmering unsteadily
in front of her eyes
so she shuts them
and the pain increases
and the fears appear as if they were desperately seeking breathing air
secrets are pounding in her chest craving to escape drowning bitterness
so when you feel her skin
know what you are feeling because
oh it’s all of her

***

Love,
Em
