Carve

I thought I finally did it.
I thought I carved my place
into your life,
my name into your curious mind,
I thought I finally made a difference –
that I was
different.
As your fingers reached for mine
you had no idea how deep your
touch went.
Warm like nerve endings
firing off beneath
thin skin.
I thought I carved my place
into your life.
It turns out you
pierced your way through me,
clean through my
brittle body and out
the other side.

Carve
