drops of you land on my skin
and you cool my blood like rain.
you are the swing that leaves me
punch drunk and stumbling to catch my balance.
you look at me and I untie
as if I am the ropes that bind you,
as delicate and frail as gossamer.
I can’t shake you out of my eyes.
I am held to you like the moon is to the earth –
separate (but a part)
and you cradle me in the kind of sadness
only the moon and I know.
what am I?
no more than bird bones and feathers.
I am not a field of wild flowers,
to you or anyone,
but a soft set of wings to carry me through your overcast
so that I can feel your cool rain on my shoulder blades.
