underneath [10 MWC]

you'll catch my pulse


between two fingers,
the heavy drag of iron
under skin


giving me away. (don't
ask for things you can't
have, don't breathe
too loud


around the ache.) can
you hear it, between
the bump and the lag?
that sough under


the blood that says, this
was never the bargain.
you were never meant
to taste


like cinnamon and summer
evenings. you were never
supposed to be


this.

[A/N - I did this 10 minute writing challenge on a writing date with Stephanie, so she can attest to the fact that we did in fact stick to the 10 minute limit. She keeps me honest.]
