crawl into the open wound of my heart.
spread out your limbs and make a bed there
for you belong there
and have done for so long.

you belong in every atom of my being
and my being so hollow through lack of touch.

seep into me, whole
and bury deep within me.
break the arteries and capillaries that held me prisoner.

creep into the holes that once held my eyes
and shout lost secrets to the walls that don’t hear.

burst through my rib-cage, and make a mockery of me.
leave my lungs on the floor
i don’t need them where i’m going.

enter my mouth, lay eggs in my skin.
claw your way through my cheeks and
repent all your sins.
