Can’t you see, your fingerprints are all over me,
Your carresses, your kisses, your warmth,
Your sullen moods, your depression, your temper,
Your fears, your inadequacies, your choices,
Imprinted on my skin,
I have tried to scrub
but you are here
Tightening around my body,
Your love, your joys, your sorrows,
Your blood is my blood,
But my blood is so much more.
I feel it now:
these fingerprints fading.
