once swathed

unfold my ribs,
set my butterflies free.

let none be lured in.

let only your love
seep under this skin.

keep me                                                        
keep me                                                        
keep me until my tessellate wings fade.
keep me until my last morning breaks. 

we are symmetry;                                      
a perfected art,
staged rhythm,
accidental fates.

when you breathe,
i am released—

metamorphosis complete.

you are all,
this is it;
you are where
my soul begins.
