Heartbeats

My calloused hands chase the bones of your spine.
Deafening heartbeats were silenced beside
Your eyes. Why was every thought lost inside
The wells of your soul? Bodies intertwined,
Our inhibitions would muffle themselves
Against sweat soaked sheets. But the sun is too
Hot today. Leaves cast shadows in the new
Spaces between us. We are not ourselves.
The pulse of our hearts shatters the silence,
As you turn and take my palm from your spine.

The way you put your words together is very flattering for this piece.  All the adjectives are wonderfully chosen and give alot of vision to the poem.  Beautiful, ♥Rae
