Peel This from Me

by Tessa Tabor 8 months ago in love poems

To love

Peel This from Me

Plants of fire lay above the screen in the powder room

The cove in which my lover comes to say hello

Come over,

Peel this orange off my skin

Remove this film from my trim

You’ve shown me twice and here again,

this love should always defeat the dark without any fear


Solemn eyes through the fire

Staring back at me

The thought of jealousy

Cannot be confirmed,

Yet the thought of anger

thoroughly succeeds.

Only two faces remain

Melted together

And a guaze

Pressed up against a wall with no end
