Tattoos

I dreamed my tattoo of you
was wiped off somehow
that it bled off in the middle of the night
from the sweat on my body
heated up by my grief and torment

like the forces in my own body
were working against
my efforts to hold onto you

like when nature
fought a battle within my insides

while I was sleeping

and lost.
