You exist beneath my skin like
    IVORY AND CAUTION AND
crystal callouses and lonesome lips—
Honeyed ambition slip slipping from every pore.

You exist within my bones like
    STARDUST AND DECAY AND
diamond marrow and silvered skeleton—
Choclately vengeance drip dripping inside my veins.

You exist behind my eyes like
    DELUSION AND OBLIVION AND
obsessed sobs and lightning lashes—
Blistered diadem slip slipping past my brow.

You exist within my lungs like
   PANIC AND REPRESSION AND
razored tongue and cinnamon smoke—
Terrored triumph drip dripping past my teeth.

I am obsessed with this poem and the amount of work that went into rewriting and rewriting definitely paid off.

    OOOOH you have killed me with eloquence! 'diamond marrow and silvered skeleton', and 'blistered diadem slip slipping past my brow'. This poem is so graceful and flowy, yet unyielding. I love it!

    Please come around more often. This community is so worth it. That's the selfless reason I have, anyway. The selfish one is that I feel like I need your writing desperately.
