For My Son and His Beloved

You will teach her a song with your words

illuminate her depths with brilliance

ask her to kiss you while you both smile and

raise a fervour in her eyes

she will ask you to hold her

and you will

because the galaxies grow farther apart

but gravity pulls you in closer

you will be in oneness

and you will not know what to do with all of it.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
