thirst. 

“Watch over your heart with all diligence, For from it flow the springs of life.”
PROVERBS 4:23 AMP

how many times will I strip myself bare for armored men with sown mouths. 

isn’t this what led me here; love and its pursuit. 

when the Sun has lost her patience I cry. I pray for her return because solitude turns lonely without a shadow and I am a cowardly lover. 

better men have dug into my chest with both fists and come up skeleton dry. 

I gave what I did not want and every time you took it all.
