one day of saved light
night-light comes into my room, some shade of bruise coloured blue
while you’re around that side can you bring the sun back with you?
i'll trade you the moon.
let’s lie in sunlit glass
count minutes and invite them to pass
in icy sheets see soft burn across the concrete.
somehow kept that memory.
you stayed behind an ocean to feel safer, or so it seemed to be.
stood with painted face, feathered feet, so fly away.
fly closer, stay.
must’ve mistaken the high
or not understood the stakes at stake that night
let's breathe in, give time it's silent sigh
you were right. see these eyes?
i can feel on my skin all the hours we put in
and begin again you say you can.
when will you be, when will you be free to see me?
