Here I lie and trace
The red crescent moon
You left on my waist.

Fingers traced my spine,
Dug in deep, drew this
Shaded shape of mine.

Trace the tender mark
You branded on my
Neck and naked heart.

    You use simple language to such powerful effect. There is not a word too much or too little, Brittle. You have produced a beautiful poem of love... passionate, yet tender, with a smooth cadence and spot-on rhyming. :) x
