You touched me

IMG_5826_1024

You touched

something deep-

buried within,

forgotten, retrieved

from beneath its tombstone.

 

You asked

me to examine it again-

listen for signs of life,

hear its silent whimper,

resuscitate it with my lips.

 

You knew

what it would feel like-

how agonizing it would be

since I had buried you within me.
