Each Breath

Each Breath I Take

In my dreams last night

I heard her voice…

I had been shedding my skin

To grow new defenses, but

She found me vulnerable,

Visceral, open, undefended.

Now I will never grow a skin

Thick enough to keep her out…

She seeped into my pores,

Took over my breathing,

Heated my blood.

She is in me now.

Each breath I take

She tells me that.
