Love Poems: Day Two

you dream of him in blue
and whisper his name
in the darkness of southern nights
listening to the city
as it breathes

the walls you’ve built from crumbling earth
shake as he speaks your name
they tumble to let him in
through your cracks and insecurities

he enters boldly
and says you feel like home
he thinks you are beautiful
you want to eat away his sadness
so you swallow yours
and ask for second helpings
of his grief

you’ve always loved the ones
who were beautiful and intense

they too know how it feels
to set yourself on fire
when someone says i love you
how it feels when you finally
turn to ash
