Regeneration

Let me shed this skin before
we come together. It is mere protection
from past pains, to be sloughed
with your coming.
 
The very air around you brings
a prickle of heat to the body, alights,
and wakes the sleeping soul within whose
muffled weeping stills, flutters and
cracks the armour with a sigh.
 
Let me now emerge, the true image
of self, breaking into myself, breaking
out of myself—
becoming myself.
 
With you, once again I am me.
