One day you will treasure your beloved body like you should.
Your will hold your head high,
eyes beaming with sparkles.
Taking each step as only a bit further up the ladder.
Delighted with your accomplishments and success,
courageous and adventurous as ever.
You will be loved and wanted,
just as you are now.
But one day, you will know that.
Droplets of water dangle
off of the brittle branches
as the birds sing in the morning sun.
An illuminated glow surrounds the tree
as animals and children flock
to its humble presence as it stands tall
in the wooded forest,
looking down at the flushed cheeks
giggling beneath it.
The first time I laid with you
was my first time in bed with someone.
The warmth of your vessel against my own.
Your heated breath caressing my navel
with your hands cupping my rosy cheeks.
Now I lay alone,
absent of intimacy.
your beauty captivated my heart
your toxic words controlled my actions
conducting me like a puppet
when I leaned in to touch your breast,
when I am knocked down,
gasping for a breath
take my hand
and pull me to my feet
His lips massaged my pale forehead,
our legs entangled in the silk sheets
His bony fingers stroked strands of my hair
I giggled with pink dusted cheeks,
gazing into his chocolate eyes
His smile began to fade, he glanced away
from my flushed round face
I clenched his cold hand,
caressing my thumb over his palm
My bottom lip quivered
a sigh escaped his mouth as he began to
I lie awake in bed,
watching your breathing patterns
Sleeping peacefully like a wisp
hiding in the attic
Occasionally smiling whilst lost
in the dream land,
in another universe
The gentle moonlight peeks through the half-shut blinds
dusting your forehead
How lucky I am to lie here with you,
inhaling your pumpkin scented hair
Together we are one
