She Became a Stranger

Posted: August 30, 2017 in Uncategorized

She became stranger and stranger
She became a stranger

A recipient a victim of referred tenderness
The kind that has its roots in pain

An embrace was like slow suffocation
A collision of skeletal and muscular infrastructure

Tender nerve endings trying to avoid one another
Too much touch too much toxicity

Red heart mottled with purple bruises
Hence the tears of blood

We dried one another’s
