I am shedding my skin
like the poetry that bleeds
from your ink-cracked lips
onto the bare bones of my
anatomy.

Unfold these moon-shy limbs
that chase silence
& beg stay-with-me.

For you are the only verse
hidden within this labyrinth
of scar-damaged flesh.

This is so beautiful. When I first read this poem there is such imagery that I could picture every detail perfectly in my mind.

When I re-read it again I found myself able to link it with parts of me and situations that are happening at the current moment.

I think the lines "from your ink-cracked lips onto the bare bones of my anatomy" was what really what sent a shiver down my spine because of your way with words.

I have never read anything at all like this and I think that it is one of the most unique poems I have ever read.

Well done. Bravo.

"moon-shy limbs" beg introspection, digging through the layers of dead skin & bone...

I agree with everyone that it is like the Phantom of the Opera, but it reminded me also of a dying flower. Anyone else?
