She clothes herself in poetry,
seals her skin within the verse.

Each line becomes another garment
that conceals her fixed form's curvature,
but peels away when read.

Last night I dissected a stanza,
clamped it tight between my teeth
and tugged it down her legs.

Her body breathes warm and sweet,
speckled red like a summer strawberry field.

I sucked the juice from her lines and
spit the punctuation like seeds.

My lips mouthed the shape of her words
as my skin grew more sticky with
every splash of imagery dripping down my chin.

I peeled apart her soft pages
with sticky, pink fingertips that left them
clinging to my skin.

A single flawless line remained
between the cloak of poetry, her and me,
so we spoke the words in unison,
revealing everything and setting her verse free.
NaPoWriMo - Day 18

I've had this idea in my head all day, and after NaPo, I will certainly revisit this concept.

EDIT:
I was thrilled to wake up this morning and find that this received a Daily Deviation. I wanted to offer a huge thanks to =Ireal70 for suggesting it and ^thorns for selecting it. Also wanted to say thank you to all the amazing people on this site who have supported me and my work. I've learned a lot, met a lot of great people and look forward to seeing how my work will continue to evolve.
