You occupy a notable place
beneath my ribs
underneath will and reason.
You found your way despite the thorns and shattered glass –
Despite resistance and doubt.
I occupy a notable place
beneath your hands
stinging with lust and patience.
I found my way despite the buttons and zippers keeping us apart.
We occupy a notable place
On Johnson Hill road
beneath the oak tree
on your old brown blanket
feeling things that lack forgiveness.
And in the darkness the snow glowed like faint light.
The frost tickled the tree line and whispered gusts of sparkling snow,
landing softly at our feet.
This winter will be different.
This winter we’ll be warm.
be in my eyes; be in my heart
know it’s crazy to believe in silly things;
Matter can neither be created, nor destroyed,
And the fact of the matter is, that you have changed me,
and you are my heart.
