Once “Unlovable” settled in,

Carved out a chamber

Deep in my marrow,

Then i just wanted

to be wanted

Your fingers grazed me

And i rattled like bones

That remembered starving

When you laid your head on my ribs

Did you hear the soft grinding

Of granite on granite?

Farewell my almost lover.

If i hadn’t learned so early, so well,

I’d have sworn you were holding on

For more than just the heat of it.
