A Deeper Love

Bones
Bleached white
Lovingly polished
Frozen…
In An immortal posture
Lovingly handled
Meticulously arranged
Jaw frozen
In a silent gasp
Of either
Intense pain
Or pleasure
Or both…..

A scarlet ribbon
Silkily encircles him
As delicately as
A Lovers kiss..
These bones
This inner frame
Of a man
Once loved
In a different way..
A more literal…
Tangible..
Returnable way..

Now….
The love for this skeleton
Is born of
A deeper desire
One more permanent..

She keeps his face
Free…
Of dust and molestation
Sometimes…
She crawls beneath
Her bed
To lay with him

Molding her
Fleshy curves
To his
Bony angles

She told him
She loved him
To the bone
She keeps her word

And love him
She shall
Till her bones
Join his

Then their
Fleshless ardor
May continue
Till dust
Do they part……
