All Mine

I lay topless on most days 

I feel the fabric of the bedsheet on my skin

I open the window to let the breeze in 

And I watch my skin turn into chicken skin

When I take a deep breath I watch my chest rise and come back down

I listen to the sound of my breath

I sometimes caress my neck gently 

I do all of this to come back to my body 

Sometimes I forget that it’s mine
