The truth is

I might love you again


Like a tooth in my heart

Wiggle twisting

Need you to be happy

More than my own life

I exalt you

Praise the ground

Where you once were

I live worshipfully

In the safety

Of unsated craving

The empty space around a love

The breath before a kiss

A heart made of terror and goodbye

I imagine you in peril

In dreams I save you


From the upper window

I watch you

Watch me

As you walk away

I stand


This is what I need you to know

Your shadows be

Long with me
