Underneath My Skin


An invisible hook

lodged into my mind

The first time your hands met my body

I must have let you in

because you snuck underneath my skin

Lately the sparse memories

replay again and again


A quicksand attraction

that I fell into-

Failing to notice

Whatever it was you slipped into my drink

Which melted the way I think,

opening me up to the possibility

of abandoning my protection instinct


You drew me in, slowly

and just as easily...drove me away

left me disappointed,

you're in my system now

how long will it take before you are out?

You somehow altered my essence-

a leaf dropped in a pond- causing ripples

yet never making any sound
