You are poetry wrapped in skin,
on fire from within.
I am just a collection of
ghosts and sin,
steadfast in chagrin.
Through you I can peer into realms unseen.
I count the stars in your eyes
and the light makes everything
Fire spreads too fast for water’s wave-
the world disappears
and you are the sun.
The sky falls into itself,
but your light remains-
And I am your reflection
hidden in the face of the moon.
Oh what truth,
what beauty lies in both of us!
In all of us!
Did you know it all along when you looked at me?
You have dug a hole in my wounds-
Released the poison and the fumes.
You made space there in the doom-
to plant seeds to grow
