There’s a hole in my soul
that only loneliness fills.
A certain numbness 
creeps across my veins.
I slept easily
with sorrow as my bedmate.
And you crept in,
as silent as dawn
with all the brilliance
of a rising sun.
You lifted me 
from the graveyard
of my comfort,
burned away the Winter
that held my bones together.
There’s a hole in my chest
that aches in emptiness
each time you call my name. 
My nerves are a live wire
beneath the palm of your hand.
You’ve stripped me
of my tombstone,
left me open and bare
to the elements -
I want to tuck you into my arms
and keep you forever.

ps; I like how she manipulates words
