cast-off

scent of your
heart  
lingers...
touches skin, mouth,
  soul
and I am alive 
fighting 
to flow among these
feelings that 
wash my 
fears
in 
balms of 
tender-
ness
so unaccustomed
to love, lust
and life
for
m-e
me

and I wrap
the arms of your 
cast-off shirt
tighter a-
round
shoulders
lest yesterday's 
burdens remember
forgotten tears
anew
