“That’s so high school,” they say.
“What are you, fifteen?” they ask.
But why?
I call them battle wounds,
And you’ve always hated that.
But why?
What we do in bed is who we are
Let me carve valleys into your back
With my sharpened fingers.
Puncture my legs with your jagged nails
Until I stain the ocean dark, dark black.
Claw, bite, rip, tear, gnaw
Your way to my heart.
Take it in your mouth and crunch down,
Until we mix into one. Until we are.
What were we?
Friends, acquaintances, lovers, enemies, strangers,
It doesn’t matter anymore. Now we’re one.
I will leave whatever marks on you I can,
Be they out of love and passion.
I will colonize your skin, make my home in
Every pore and crevice.
I will mark what is mine in that moment,
Out of fear that you will be gone tomorrow.
Do the same to me. Make me yours.
Strip my identity from my bones,
Replace my flesh with you, with us, with this.
Your friends’ lovers don’t leave marks like that?
Your friends don’t know how to love like I do.
We are what we do in bed,
and I leave marks.

Leave a mark
So I know I wasn't just dreaming

there's a certain elegant aesthetic in the discoloration
of a bruise on pale skin
of knowing that yes, higher up means you are in big trouble
but higher up also means
the world can see
that she is

short and not what i wanted to say and not true at all
You're a hickey on my neck,
Alexis June

You're a hickey on my neck,
bruised and red,
marking your territory,
refusing to fade.

#love   #yours   #mark   #hickey  
Is a hickey
Ashley Nicole

The only bruise he should ever leave on you
Is a hickey

You're boring.
You're  obscene,
You're tiring...
And you're fucking mean.

70% of earths surface is water
And yet...
This ocean isn't big enough for
The two of us.
