Tenderly

 

I breathe your air

Today and incessantly

Floating from the drowning

 

You swept me

You churned me

 

Like a scarecrow alive

You startled the birds in the field

 

Wanting you, needing much

In this skin you slithered as a flirt

 

You possessed me tenderly

You possessed me eternally
