Never yours - a poem

Never Yours.

when you get quiet and I get angry
I try to picture you naked 
to see you as no one has seen you before
to try to feel more than this sucking anger
but your words clothe you
they cover you in colours that mar your skin
that trace patterns to deflect 
how I feel when I look at you in anger
and detract from 
how much I want to see you weakened
vulnerable
but instead of feeling the burning heat of this moment 
I feel a chilling cold, a sadness that breaks my heart
as your words are another veil 
another way to keep me on the outside of you

when you get quiet, I can't hold onto the anger
it seeps into sorrow and drips between my fingers
onto my naked skin
never yours.
