To X.

i wanted to love you
with the tenderness of feathery pillows
with the intensity of blue flames
i wanted to love you
and lose my senses in the act
and dance naked at the stream
and say that one plus one is one

i wanted to love you
without restraints
and empty myself at your feet
i wanted to love you
with reckless abandon
and defy the motion of the world
with settled conviction

but your love had jagged edges
your love had many layers
like the onion that made me cry
that made me say loneliness is solitude
that imbued me with hope
and miscarried same in their
embryonic solemnity.

  3. Love is an irony
    In a moment, it fills you with sweet memories
    In a twinkle of an eye, you’re down bleeding I hope we learn to trust ourself
    And cease putting our trust in mortals
