Do you care
that my unprotected fair skin
burns so easily
in the blistering sun?

Do you notice
the many hues of red in my hair
and how in curls
in the humidity?

Do you ever really peer
into my eyes and see
the darker circle of green
that surrounds my iris?

Do you feel
the goose bumps that mar
my so soft skin
when a breeze gently touches down?

Do you recall
how I occasionally bite
my lower lip
as I ponder a deep thought?

Do you remember
the tint of pink
that covers my toenails
even in the dead of winter?

Do you see
the flush that comes to my face
when you look at me
with naked desire?

Do you hear
the echo of my voice
as it trembles
with unadulterated excitement?

Am I just
an empty vessel
to fill
when you overflow with need?

Am I just
a warm body
whose heat you covet
on those cold winter nights?

Am I just
a bottomless reserve of strength
that carries you through
your darkest days?

Am I just
a soft place to land
when the world gets to be
too overwhelming?

Am I just
an inanimate object you pick up
when it suits you
and then place back on the shelf?

Am I just
number nineteen
in a ledger full
of many women?

Am I just
an experiment
to determine
if the wiring really is faulty?

Am I just
some time to pass
while you wait for her
to come to her senses?

I asked myself these questions
before you had a chance to ask me
your place or mine?
