remember our nights
 1
imprinted on your face
 2
folds of the sheets
 3
a map upon your cheek
 4
 
 
your skin
 5
good memory
 6
carried the lines from our bed

well into the day

The poem is outwardly about how skin loses it's elasticity with age.  Memory appears to be an occuring theme as does skin.  The dark in the light, unresolved.
 — Roz

..or a light in the dark perhaps, lol, sorry.  I like it, it's cute.
 — Roz

It's not cute, honest. Don't delete.

It has lots of things going on that I like a lot. The title for a start. Could be about skin, but could also be about sexual gymnastics or is that just me?

Lines 1-2 I love these. A face does look so different after love.

Only line that jars for me is line 6. I don't think it's necessary. Or maybe you could just make it 'a memory' or remove it altogether? Just a suggestion. I think the languid tone gives an impression of pleasure so you don't need to stress it was good!
  
I love this though. The skin a metaphor for acts of love and the feelings that linger. Mmmmmm
