The Ache of My Bones

Inspired by Sarah Doughty’s A Way Out

I feel you in my bones
deep within the marrow
your name written
crimson and ivory
on platelets
and leukocytes
I reach out my hand
but still you slip away
so much crystalized
phosphorus
crushed calcium
leaving me brittle
hollow
bitter scars of ossification
only proof that you once
dwelled within me
