Scream

skin;

shed it all
slithering down
scouring the sleepy slopes
scampering, squeezing, sliding –
slap.

fingers;

bear it all
second chance
make it good
grab; grip; grind; grope –
sigh.

lips;

sudden
without warning
engulfed, consumed whole
shattering, shards of ruby glass –
shout.

heart;

beating
rhythmic, pulsing
unwavering, bittersweet raw
crashing, unceasing, searing heat –
shock.

eyes wide open
stained white
scream
