Eve’s Rib


East of Eden
By Annmarie Lockhart

Inspiration Piece

I feel these miles of
between us
as an ache
in my heart
just above
and to the left
of my still-sore
rib, bruised from
when your arms
held me breath-tight
and your lips danced
on my throat
and we moved
and I called out
our name.

    The feeling of romance is prevalent. A beautiful poem.

    Very provocative- I am listening to vox poetica as I discover this work…

    Nicely done, both of you.
