i’m for you

i’m for you





i’m a candle in a cathedral, burning with hope.
i’m an old tale haunting a heart.
i’m the soft monsoon cloud questing for a patch of earth that will welcome his weeping.
i’m the new skin come to veil wounds.
i’m a birdsong and the setting sun.
i’m the grass growing on the wayside, unnoticed.
i’m the wind you use to form love on your lips.
i’m what fills you for a moment. sometimes more.
then you flit. making me ephemeral.
but i’m pulsing, inside you. in places you’ll never reach.
i’m for you, but never yours.

let my thoughts come to you
when I am gone
like the afterglow of sunset
at the margin of starry silence
