Image for the poem gratitude ~ [//seeking//]

gratitude ~ [//seeking//]

i asked...
but you chose
to leave nothing but a crease
on my pillow case
the shadows of my bones
pushed into you ~
suddenly fragile  
& breakable
my skin implored
your fingers to linger
against my nape
like a whisper
but you withdrew
in a sharp inhalation
... stealing  
the temporary warmth...
your stubbled jaw
bore no trace
of the lipstick stains
i'd dreamed
would mark you at dawn ~
my teeth had left
no impressions
of stifled moans
i asked...
but you chose to leave
bare of my touch

my most heartfelt thanks to two unbelievably talented gentlmen:
to l @ unleashed for taking the original image
to poetikmind for putting his ahmaaaaaazing drawing skills to work for the image used here
