about a wife

turning ice into fire

how can I

turn ice into fire?

has it been done?

 

just when the shame has disappeared

you shape it back

out of the mist.

 

I don't want to beg.

I want scream.

I ache for something that isn't even there.

 

like grabbing for air,

trying to hold a single molecule

between two fingers.

 

take me out into the rain.

don't ask for my permission.

cold skin on fire.

 

desire.
