ask me how i am

ask me how i am
look at my face
stare into my eyes
put your lips on mine
feel desire pulsing

ask me how i am
slip under the covers
wrap your arms around my chest
put your palm over my heart
notice how quickly it beats at your touch

ask me how i am
trace your finger over my scar
feel the soft new skin
find how close the bone is to the surface

ask me how i am
wipe the tear from my cheek
when i realize you aren’t real

ask me how i am
