A Weighted Proposition

Connection is
such a weighted proposition
Love’s pounds pull
like an old-fashioned waltz

I hold you and I hope that you’re still there
that this minute
isn’t all there is of you
Please be eternal, my love
I can’t do this
without you

These tears have been dammed
a thousand times
but now they flow
for you

for you
yes, goddamn fucking you
white and freckled
and with those


break the distance
damn you, break the distance

I f I can’t hold you
within myself
lifetimes more than this
then how will I survive?
