within my skin

sitting within
without a skin
inward
waiting and redoing
every line I spoke
to her
picking up
every line she spoke
to me
putting them all
into my skinless self
willing my heart to
remember
without her
is without
bubbles
dandelions
kittens
westerns
twilight zones
or boxed macaroni
but I go on
and I hug myself
without my skin
without her skin
but I have her words
I have the words she spoke
only to me
