i dont need another beautiful person
burning cars crashing like thunder
on the low shoulders of slick
roads.

break my body into dirt and sand;
bury me under unequivocal volumes
of disparity and aches, throbs
building climatically, latitude and longitude
inching closer and closer under
the closet door; hide my sorrows and
insufficiency in the bends of insatiable
arms and bring me away from the wall.

i have trusted the moon to hold up to man,
i have trusted the world to see
the beauty in things longing
to keep esoteric,
but the bleeding
never ebbs and
the cuts never heal.
the hearts pound
like iron hammers in empty rooms,
reverberations painting cowards
in their
frozen poses.

i dont need another beautiful person
another set of dangerous lips
to murmur and pry like the
thin legs of butterflies
smudging the lining of my heart
and breaking full wings like a cocoon.
shreds of gauze and structure
burst like rice paper
until i am weak and limp, sinking,
gaunt cheeks, into the hollow
bones the beautiful call
home.
oh, why do i write. i dont know, this didnt need to happen, this wasnt meant to happen.

(honestly, probably got the title from 'jennifers body' which was an absolute shitfest.)

the part that hit me the most was "but the bleeding never ebbs and the cuts never heal." I might have almost cried

. . .into the hollow

what a lovely, heartbreaking poem. . .and such a perfect ending.
I always wish that I could use the body in my writing as you do, even though that sounds a little sketchy. . .:P

I suppose body-related things are common, but few can use them the way you do, so. . . :D
