do I marry a woman

who never took care

of my heart?


do I keep an anxious lover

hidden inside the darkroom

knowing that her pigments

will soon fade

without light?


do I not feel the need

to feed the hunger of the self-righteous

who wrestles in territorial disputes not of their own

when our god of love knows no boundaries?





we remain

forever close in the distance

of our own world

sharing the nearness

spaced by comforts

of our own choosing


we remain

a picture reflected in the lights

of our own breath

sharing the elusiveness

within the aches

of our tired heart


we remain

a grail

of our own heart

yet spaced in between heaven

and the tips of our finger

is a safe embrace that calls us


to remain..
