Day 7: It's poetry time!

 This poem came out of me after reading a chapter in Kathleen Norris' book The Cloister Walk. I thought this was pretty cool because I wrote it stream of consciousness. I also thought being inspired to write a poem after reading this book was fitting given that the author is a poet. Personally, I think Kathleen would be proud :)

The Necessary Other

in front,
Visceral and real.

Breath scraping skin,
seeping through pores.

Becoming part of me.

Fall into my lungs,
pass through my heart.

No longer part of me,
you have become me.

Look at me,
I look into you.
