all the places in myself i keep hidden
the 4 am tears and doodles
of my lover’s hands, holding me.
To wake up, to a six-word poem of : I Want To Die With You.
And a sky pregnant with sadness.
My mouth is always wet and filled with your name
even when you do not see me my love;
with all these poems I write for you, i wonder, Why you do not love me.
