I like your skin visceral,
dirty with meaning -
a rampant offering
to the night.
I want your lips stuttering,
sounds feral and damp -
your tongue
cleaving to my chest.
Just peel me, angel -
let those tender wings
bruise these bones
and send me
wandering home.

A powerful and sensual write.  You have never been afraid of fully exposing your thoughts in beautiful expressive poetry.  
 
It's good to see that you haven't deserted us here on da after all. :)

Life and its issues pulled me away...not to mention the fact that my muse flat-lined. Thanks!

I was away a while - almost all of the first half of 2014 (and wasn't up to writing a thing during that time) - but your being gone was literally felt by so many of us.  If this is a return, or just a brief showing to post your latest poem, it makes this work all the sweeter - sinking my senses right into it for the hunger its appearance has now sated.  So good to see you, Brendan.
