Skeleton Key

Lets the boy think he can break her, like he


broke her once before, hopes to again.


It's an addiction, seems to fix them


both, awhile, till one starts itching


and the other- 'cause it's catching- gets


to scratching.


 


Need claws through them. Wants to get in


under, somewhere warm, and dark


and deep, unreachable without committing


parts to losing. What they'll keep


 


is hidden. Locked. Hearts in coffins


built too small to hold


such tiny, tiny, heavy bones. Memories a cage


of ribs, picked clean. The holy skeletons


of dreams- purchased for a song,


sold for a soul.


 


Within, they wait.


 


Within, they glow.
