Random Poem:

BEFORE SLEEP
Laurygrl

The skin remembers
 1
each silent touch,
 2
the collected wealth
 3
of all cottony details--
 4
pocketed and protected
 5
by the space
 6
between words.
 7
The impact of lips
 8
against the stretch
 9
above clavicle;
 10
mimicking the fragility
 11
of whispers and
 12
the fevered swell
 13
of heated proximity.
 14
The path followed,
 15
along shoulder,
 16
sternum, and rib.
 17
Where pores react
 18
to each applause;
 19
the dew of contact
 20
harboring the softest
 21
memory of fingertips
 22
meeting, collaborating
 23
with candle light
 24
and the butterscotch
 25
flavor of dreams.
