The Body Keeper

Updated: Oct 4, 2019

find me

in the space between

the light

and the dark

in the crevices

where lonely hearts hibernate

to survive


this taut body

a soft cloak of armour

to repel all wondering eyes and

wondering hands

that follow me through

the days

and the nightmares


self-destructive

preservation

the only thing more bearable

than the truth

spoken from the crib:

that which is unspeakable

in this life
