Aftermath

So this is how it is,
to be pressed against your body..
this is fragility, this is my downfall,
this is how glass is made, this is how I will break.
This is me walking into my destruction and this is love.
This is me nude, stripped of clothing and vulnerability,
this is you and me, this is “we.”
This is shelter for the battle ahead,
one that we were never bound to win.
