My Skin and Yours

You taste of the sky,

And smell of the air,

Feel of the Earth,

And move like a river…

A spark lights the tinder,

And I can already feel the fire,

Now that all is quiet here,

I can take in all the wonder…

My luck is strong today,

And I don’t feel the threat,

Hanging over me always,

For now at least, my threat rests…

I won’t miss the spectacle,

I won’t obscure the view,

I evolve into something respectable,

If only to earn my spot next to you…

Elevated as I am I will still,

Wear the scent of the bottom,

The best of us would gladly kill,

To keep from being the corpse at the bottom of the hill…

As long as my skin can still find yours,

I will survive whatever the world throws at me,

I will always get back up off the floor,

So long as you’re there to smile at me…
