I want to run to you. I want to hold
you in my arms, seal your cracks
with a kiss and gold. I want to be
your crying shoulder. I want to be
the space your hands long for. Make
me your home, your refuge. I will
make you mine.
I want to walk with you through
the night. I want you to lay open
your heart and soul so that I can
mend them. I will do the same. Mend
me, kiss me, do what you will. I want
to fold the distance between us into
a single point and bury it in memory.
I want to take the hole in your chest
and fill it with butterflies of every
shape, size and color. I want to take
you into my arms and cling to you
when you despair. I want to open up
your heart and eyes and show you
that I care. That you can trust in this
love with all of your heart. I don’t care
that you fear. I just want you.
