i dream of drowning in
lakes, belly up, a petal
shaped bruise of your thumb
on either wrist

i dream that what lays
in my bed is so much
more terrifying than what
lurks underneath it

I worship you. 
Okay, that's extreme. But I love this. The only word that could possibly describe this would be…exquisite. 
Cheers!

I took quite a bit from this free verse. There's something something, yet also something dark that lingers in it's potential meanings. I can even relate to it... Beautifully written. :heart:

This is absolutely beautiful. In the admittedly unlikely event that I ever got a tattoo of some words, I think these are the words I would get a tattoo of.
