Do you shave your legs for a first date with an ex?
He was salacious in phrases.
Memories that taunt the very being of my soul
Of who I am now and then.
Eyes that would wound hero’s .
The only man I smiled at
who pointed a gun at my heart
helping me mend
as I had been broken into a million pieces
by a soul mates kiss goodbye.
tTmpting me out of hiding
squeezing into the deepest parts of my body
eliminating the very essence that broke me
his healing hands graced my body
with the strength of a noble man
with the endurance that would rock
a shadow from its place attached
to the human side of my will.
I never forgot
the smell of food to my starving self
hunger so violent
I tossed it away with my freedom
the way he handled me
in a game of cards.
Giving me a picture to store
memories for all to see.
would we have made it
before we grew up?
