robes fall apart

I gasp and awake
feeling You turn over within me.

Robes fall apart
that were woven
with our blood and breath.

For a moment I am bereft
of my senses

only a howl of separation
slaps my head to the pillow.

I cover my heart
with a protecting palm.
I hear You whispering
out of my darkness:

Come bind Me quickly
to your flesh.
Let your hollow bones
be My voice

My life and love.
