Skin

Break into this 

Don’t let it fade

Such a strong stride

Such a shame

Make it be what you want

Let it be what it will

I loved the light 

Faded 

Curdling

Under an absence 

Of confidence

Instead

Stuttering

Clambering 

To be something 

I already was

But couldn’t be

Turns out broken glass 

Doesn’t seal

Water leaks through

Breathe it in, Baby

Oxygen is gone

Float away

Float away

Float away 

Home

Where the water soaks the reeds

The cold is crisp

Needle-like ice

Melts into mud

Cakes into

Pores

Letting in

Too much

I want to breathe in your skin
