Baby I will undress you with all the little lies
The insecurity you wrap yourself in….
Jumping from one light to another
Measuring yourself by every pretty smile
Painting and repainting the same picture hoping
It comes up less wanting
Baby I will undress you and never think of you again…
He said you are foul mouthed,
I mend shattered spirits in twilight hours
Undress with profanity till I am bare
I stand whole in imperfection
I am rough, chipping slowly at the façade
You call your life
Sharp tongued and foul mouthed
I am begging … for a sparring partner

I love you
I felt the word like a slap to the face
It burned, I could feel my skin flush, numb, tingles down your spine
When all you’re feeling is…. Fear
I looked into his eyes and I could feel it
My eyes burned, I was crying, one heave tear at a time,
I closed my eyes tight, I could feel his thumb against my cheek,
I could feel his gaze enveloping me
He leaned in kissing my forehead whispering into my skin, I am yours
I will hold you through the fear

I asked him why
He laid there watching
The curls fall gently
Across olive skin
Tracing up her should,
Memorizing her smirk
I brushed his hair back
Slowly asking .. why ?
He leaned in closer, wantonly…
His lips met the eager
Lips of sunlight.
He’d been dreaming
She was a beautiful
Figment of wasted moments …
All he could think was .. why …
How do I hold your pain
Ease your desolation
Deaden what suffocates you..
It was as if she was praying
Pressed to my chest
Her breath, slowly. matching. mine ...
I traced his chest,
He asked what do you see ..
I see constellations just for me
I see peace for when I am weak
I see my future in a world that’s bent on
breaking me. -IB
He said I love you .
What does that mean
The things I hide.
What I deny..
The broken parts of me? - IB
