tender

by eloisehendy

what a slender thread humanity
seems side on

life is tender and impossible
you are tender and wrapped

in fur you seem so very small
or are you

just getting further out i watch
as you recede

imagining your veins pooling under
your translucent skin

you are so tender and it is impossible
not to love

you. i imagine

folding you into the left ventricle
of my heart
