Sunday Scribblings: Treat and A to Z: Heal

H for the Blogging from A to Z Challenge.
                                     and
This week's Sunday Scribblings prompt is treat.      

H is for Heal               

The rain is petal and fur
I stick to your skin
Where your smell is silvery and loose

Your mouth is blood and your lip is real
I crawled out of wing to see
Your lust is pale

Cumming away
from most things that are moonly
this one is under the sea

I like it when I am with you
I like your snow
underneath my wave

When you leave me still
the air breaks and spills
I stay to eat pieces of the Ocean

You wear the water when you walk away
I eat my heart
I wait to heal

The moon is cold, my blood dry
I lick your wet laughter off of my skin
I wait to heal.


After an evening of e.e. cummings. I love him. How about you?

  9. This is so gorgeous! You are very creative. Love the way you think and imagine.

    These are my favorites:
    "The rain is petal and fur"
    "your smell is silvery and loose"
    "Your mouth is blood"
    "I like your snow
    underneath my wave"
    "I stay to eat pieces of the Ocean" (I am crazy about this!)
    "I lick your wet laughter"

    This is stunning:
    "When you leave me still
    the air breaks and spills
    I stay to eat pieces of the Ocean

    You wear the water when you walk away
    I eat my heart
    I wait to heal"
