A Song of Acceptance

because you murder me with love

The Zorya, art by debora Ewing

here, I wrote you a love song

for asking of me only one thing
that i simply sit
next to you in my crazy state
for as long as I like

for picking up each picture
I blurt, words out-of-focus
filtered observations
turning them in your hands

for laughing
because your laughter is petals
and beeswax and moss
not sharps and rusty blades

can it really hurt so much to be so happy?
here, I wrote you my tears
because you murder me with love
because I think you’ll keep them
