This is not a small voice but a lake
She bends over me
Sucking the bones
Spitting closed vowels each morning
Tasting desire –
The kind of love that is draining.
I hold, searching my reaches,
I want….. someone
Who energizes me
A face that replaces the darkness.

Sonia Sanchez, Robert Frost, Sylvia Plath, and Rupi Kaur.
