show your bones

funny how your fingers fit

in the grooves of my rib cage

kneecaps on hip bones

your/my mouth devours

you thrust within me

and i cling to you

with more than my arms

your slight frame never

considered manly

my slight frame never

womanly enough

your bony fingers

fit my jutting ribs

and at last i understand

we’re starved for one another

    Ooh, I loved how visceral this is, how many shapes fit together, like a complex multi planed jigsaw.

  • An excellent concept for a poem well executed

    I really like this. It puts a new spin on the concept of being “hungry” for someone.

    This is a wonderful piece of work. I am in awe of the vulnerability matched with desire you have brought into play here. Amazing stuff.

  • Beautifully vulnerable & honest, expressing a hunger & connection the world at large might never understand until we allow ourselves the grace to come home.

  • This was amazing! A very interesting take on that writing prompt. Thank you for sharing this one with me.

    Oh, I can relate all too well--not only with the nagging feeling of failure since you don't meet societal standards of womanhood, whatever that means, but with the almost spiritual, soul-bonding experience of the erotic. This is so good. You've got a new subscriber!

  • Oh that was fantastic, loved the idea! And so well put. Great job with this!

    Nice!! How wonderfully said of them finding one another and fitting perfectly.

  • You know what, this was such a creative take on that prompt! I loved it!

    That's really sexy ;) I didn't even know what that prompt this is, so I checked it out. I might have to give: "The wolves are howling" a try.
