deep into the sap of me
until you find a piece of amber
fossilized by the heat seeping off
the magma of unerupted fury
that runs beneath the silent, tectonic pressure
of stress-taut muscles and fear clenched teeth.
until your arms are lost
up to the elbows
in my darkest self and strangest secrets.
and close your eyes
until you know me without them.
Sight will only blind you
when you're seeking in the dark.
Burn yourself on the worst of me,
and never let me go.
