Melt

Standard

I want to melt.

I want to slip between the cracks.

I desire to be held and let all my walls

Down.

To be completely and utterly

Vulnerable.

Naked.

But I can’t.

I’m too bent.

I’m too damaged.

It’s too late

And I’m too tired.

These bruises won’t go away.

No matter how hard I scrub,

The bleach won’t clear away the stains.

The glue won’t hold the cracks together.

My strength is just a hoax I’ve planted in my brain

Which my heart can no longer

Sustain.

Definitions

Standard

Love,

Breathe

And be.

Open your heart.

Open your mind.

Open your eyes.

Drop the definitions.

Knock down the fences.

Obliterate the walls.

You are in your own way.

You have constrained your mind,

Your heart.

And wrapped yourself

So tight in definitions,

You cannot breathe.

This barricade you have built

Has left you with nowhere to go and

Nothing new to see.

Now,

You have limited your own vision.

Letters

Standard

I have kept every letter that you wrote.

I must confess,

I read them from time to time.

My heart swells

As I remember well

Your words even before

The papers unfold.

I grasp them as if they are you,

And hold them to my breast.

It is as though

Doing so might bring you back.

My tears flow.

How I wish you

Had known

How deeply my love was returned.
