the chemistry of my sorrow (skin&bone)

the chemistry of my sorrow (skin&bone)

“It hurts to love. It's like giving yourself to be flayed and knowing
that at any moment the other person may just walk off with your skin.”

no Garden of Eden my creation story
me cast from Teflon + every repellent
known to human history

then drawn physically + powerfully
to the impossible compound you
radium + lanthanum + barium

if not impossible at least unstable
thus eventually + predictably gone
leaving only this black hole my sorrow

i am risen now

most men offer you
only their hearts

but i must confess
you own me skin&bone

if you take my hand
because it is my hand

fingers laced with fingers
you have taken everything
