take me once again
between your thick roots
and let me became a woman again.
part your soil
so that I may retrieve myself.
to the new and unfolding magnificence
of icy brown eyes.
This crowded land is nothing but a shuffle
beneath my snow licked nose
and I wish to hide within you once more.
My skin could be my own once more,
and my love,
could be free
from the tingling shake of war and disease.
if you took me inside you again
I could make the world whole,
hold it safe and tightly between my pale fingers
and feel the earth giggle underneath my feet.
Once I was within you
I would sing you a beautiful song
and color it with a
that would leave you in tears
with my soil ridden fingertips could wipe away your fear for destruction.
I could be a twin
in this time of need
and live beside the ground
and speak to you every morning
when the night
with all its beauty
was still out
I would lie
the eye lashes
of your tall yellow grass
and be made whole above you
and in my lovers arms.
if you took me in
the rain would fall warmly across our skin once more
and melt the anger and hate
of the men who seek to stain your skin red
and lick the delicate masterpiece of your face
until its dry
as I am now.
