ode to womanhood

lower back pain,
take me
back to that pain
place where the pieces,
for one small moment,
all fell into place.
this space
still here in my heart.
so much space
falling back down
into every core.
memories turn into
unfallen tears.
i will not let them fall.
not in my lap,
unnoticed, no.
closed eyelids keep open spaces healing.
these days
time stands still
when i think of you.

lower back pain,
nerve endings cry out
for the solution.
one, two, three,
ten fingers aligned so perfectly
right there
till the pain goes away
trace every abandoned detail.
hands do what this heart asked,
for in the silence of those nights
muffled requests
block all attempts of purity.
how pure is this desire.
