Crawl to Me

by codebllack

Have you been crawling to me, darling-

like a crocodile basking in the sun crawls

to the water?

Warm and ferocious

Have you been screaming my name under water?

Your moans are turning into bubbles in the ocean

I’m drowning underneath

I’m swallowing the surface

Have you been licking at my hips?

Have you been counting my bones?

I can’t quite hear you

Your words are dying in the caverns between your ribs

Flowers are turning into leaves

Humans are phasing into hyenas

We are nothing but breathing soil
