Across my ribs

Below my armor metal pieces hide that compel me to a sleepless night.

I cease to dream and wonder if your sight would still punish my nagging heart.

Those shards of ore; I swear they roar.

As if a different floor had been found beneath my arms where the metal, like a nib, extends all across my ribs.

and now...

Every time I breath and my lungs expand, I can feel the edges cut against the skin.

and I swear... there are times in which I'd rip this ivory enclosure

but THESE are all I have

but THESE are all I have from the precious time

but THESE are all I have from the precious time that I spent with you.
