Lover on the Sheets – A Poem

Note: Today is Halloween in the Philippines—and, incidentally, my significant other’s birthday. So why not post a poem? I was originally going to submit this someplace, but I kinda changed my mind. ^^;

Anyway—Happy Birthday, Bee!

And for the rest of you—Happy Halloween! May the spirits who visit be not sinister or at the very least be cool enough to let you have the choice to damn your eternal soul. Or something.

Lover on the Sheets

My lover on the sheets
is moon-white and
bone-cold
and creeps in the shadow crevices
of bunched-up blankets;
whispering sweet sinister
everythings at my feet.

Ah, darling grasping
at my toes!
Did you really think
I would ever let you go?
