let me paint
your portrait in words
with my soft voice
whispering the lines
of you, your contours
barely brushed with my
trembling lips
stained with ache, with
the truth of you
filling in the blanks
i see this complete
with my eyes closed
putting the finishing
touches
on you
each time i
open
my mouth.
