This (for Thyra)

This
is important, this
is everything, this
is what I’ve been
screaming
with every
breath

Carve your sunrise smile through
this
skin that imprisons
kiss away with your cascade lips
this
self-loathing
this
loneliness
this
distrust

This
is everything
this
world in your eyes
this
universe in your touch
this
firmament in your loss and confusion

Open
this
flesh and touch
this
sinew
this
bone
this
blood
this
memory
this
weakness

This
is yours
this
is you
this
is the house you built
from your forgiveness
