The grass is beautiful from here.
Can you see my shadows
covering your earth lined skin?
My water is seeping into your
hollow cracks and I am breathing
to the beat of your heart.
We are in sync
and the drum is rolling.
Our earth is spinning
and the bits of flaws
are twining away.
I am proud and scared
of my vantage that will come of us.
You reek of pleasure
and I reek of the pain
that interlocks us
as we dance into
a skin that was never ours.

I love you.
