​Bruised where your fingers imprint

Upon my body

Tattooed forever, here is my soul

Hardly wasted

Figure eights on a page

In a link, infinity 

Lipsticked stained 

My perfume in your hair

Your lips that say “I love you”

Your Gentleness when you care

Summer light that arrives slowly 

Promises a new day

When I feel your eyes upon me

When you asked me not to go

For one week, one day…One hour 

Is the moment I chose to stay 

You write with fingers and sighs 

Trace the lines of yesterday’s lies

I open very slowly

I’m careful that way

And, darling it’s your desire

That makes me slip and sway 

It does not really bother you

My reasons and my doubt

It’s how I love your heart beat 

And, now to you so bound


As you walk across the room 

It never really stops

Our desire on repeat 

And, before I realise what I’ve done

I’ve succumbed, I have agreed

Ever doubtful, ever fair

I was willing 

We met there 

We stretch in satisfaction 

Ever regretful, now ever believe

Finally happy, finally content 

And, so I did not leave

You will keep me warm

I will sleep inside your our

And, if I can be enough

I’d like to be the place you love
