My body is against you

Rib bones flex under your weight

Smothered by masculinity

I disappear into the mattress


My heart is against you

When we are pressed together

Fists of muscle almost touch

They pound at each other


My spirit is against you

Your finger pins it down

As you dance around it

And wait for it to wither


My mind is against you

Every flaw and every blow

Every lack and disappointment

A coarse stone that sharpens me

That strengthens me

Against you
