Droplets of You

by Mathilde Barge


In the hot condensation,

The hardest is

Breathing out bubbles of thoughts.

Forcing an exhale

Evanescent emotions overflowing.


The hardest is

Scrapping the corners of pictures,

Reaching for bits in shallow crevices

Already imprinted in my mind.


The hardest is,

Lying still

As droplets of you

Escape down my cheeks

Flowing down the drain


The hardest is,

Picking at my scars,

Feeling the holes beneath the surface

In the flesh of fleeting imagery


Drying the pearls on my back,

The hardest is,

Surrendering to the warm embrace

Fabric taunting my exposed heart,

Trying to let you go.
