Promise

You will find me
in a cascade of stars
burning for each breath.
Brush my hair back
before my eyes
set fire to it.

Whisper
your secrets
into my mouth,
place them
on my tongue
without apology
and I promise
to swallow
everything.
There is
nothing
so dark
in you
that I wouldn’t
gladly marry it
to my heart.

I am my own
still I
wouldn’t mind
filling my days
and nights
with you.
I look at you
from a distance
that doesn’t make
a difference
to my soul.
It is strange
to say but
I know
I know you.

There is
nothing
so broken
in you
that I can’t
gather it
in my arms.
