untitled (unfold your fisted shoulder blades...)

unfold your fisted shoulder blades
like wings and fly to me tonight
draw tattoos with your fingertips
as i sleep, talking
my voice cutting through
your scars and the dark

the tears you cry
can fall on my skin
i'll only dream of rain
while you whisper rules and reasons
with my back against your heart
