dragging nails

dragging nails
down
and down
across my throat
down
and down
inspecting every hidden curve
ingesting every breathless word
every limb beckoning
every inch offering;

dragging nails
down
and down
as fine as air
down
and down
beneath this aching longing flesh
I wonder if I’ll pass the test
every button opening
every clasp uncovering;

every secret
hidden here behind the folds
every whisper
whispered in sweet undertones,

dragging nails
down
and down
honeydew
down
and down
the shadows make me visible
I watch my skin become exposed
gone are all the obstacles
the barriers to be fulfilled;

is that my voice
losing time between the lines
is this my choice
bound by all the truths and lies, dragging nails
down
and down
a meditation so profound
a silent scream so quiet
as to shatter every bone
dragging nails
down
and down
tension flows breaking ground
the taking of confession
is now strictly out of bounds.
