and you would always trail
a gentle fingertip
along my thinly veiled ribs
that rose up to the surface
when i inhaled your world.

i loved the way your hipbones
would protrude with marble glory
as you lay upon your back
and dreamed all the while
we stayed and watched the stars.

it was upon my collarbones
that you left tender trails
of reddish-purple bruises
whose presences made us laugh
in the morning
when we saw your lips' footprints.

the sharp and defined line
of your perfect jaw
always left me speechless
as i watched them hinge
everytime you spoke,
i guess my words
got sucked into your throat.

you said that the bones
in my hand
would always quiver when i got nervous
so you grabbed my fingers
and held them tight
"structure," you whispered;
and now that structure
crumbles.

so maybe when we die
they'll pile our bones together
and grind them into sand
that blows along the
shores.
