Your Conquest in Me

I stood straight
in front of my mirror,
staring at the reflection of
an uncovered figure -
bare and naked.

There wasn't much
to look at
but I saw my body
all covered in

The depression of
my collarbones -
somewhere your lips
had brushed across -
held the concave shadows.

The even chest of mine
carefully pounded unevenly,
drumming a hurtful rhythm.
One skipped beat for each
moment missing your presence.

My bony rib cage
folded, unfolded,
I breathed you in.
I breathed you out.

I am a land
you have conquered.
My Emperor, don't you
ever retreat, for
I am yours.
