all of these openings

by Olivia Weinkein

i'm too convenient
so many openings
for you to crawl around in
no trespassing i would
scream but you've found my
mouth. you're too inside me
too much a part of me
and i can't hide
under these circumstances
under you
gasping for air
grasping for truths that are as
awkward and contagious as i am
as you used to be before you found me
before you found

all of my openings.

The imagery here is so sensual; beautiful, warm piece.

Penetrating verse that leaves itself open to multiple interpretation. Thought-provoking and striking. Thanks for sharing.
