An honest write

An honest write

I do not understand her body
possessed and lurking
when my hands are tucked inside us
our underwear obscenely together
on the floor

I am just thrown together
though she does not know it

Sky-lit and drunk on the fire
of time. Marching toward an inevitability.
Stoned hard

I breathe a new power
A strength that comes from all death, the knowledge
I will die too and the spirits of the land
knotting themselves into me

So I will not lose

I will tag her heart with an art
she has never seen and as the police
of her emotions roll in to chase me
into the night for expressing myself
in paint I will fall to my knees
when I can escape and draw a diamond
from my pocket until her eyes fill with the sparkle
I have been trying to save

When her police arrest me
I will pray for hard time
somewhere in her life

And with labors sweat on my brow
I will break granite stones into gems for her
with the sincerity of my gentle vespers. Whispering
these irrefutable truths that kiss her brow
to sleep in her bed in her home
somewhere in her town

That is how I slayed the giant
and killed the last dragon

Then I roped the moon with my pen
and lit your path with the stars
your eyes have gazed upon for all these years

I even made Mother Nature make the willow
dry her tears when I found out
you love me

No need for her to weep
no more for me

So I sewed you a blanket
and a song

I built you a castle

And because you will not see em
running down my eyes
I gotta make this pen cry
