Heart’s Shawl

Please exist forever, Darling-
Ha,

I know you will.
…Do it near.

Look at me,
and see my soul.

Know me;

Smile your sad,
sad smile.

…There’s love inside your soul.

Come floating forward,
remembering names
my Maker gave me-
names that I’ve forgotten.

Keep in your consciousness
all you know-
what I don’t know myself.

(I know it somewhere
I know you somewhere
I recognize, I
recognize I)

Your two eyes that see me, Darling,
bring them towards my face.
Let me find within your pupils
me held in your gaze.

    • Thank you! 🙂 I’m particularly fond of this one. (Also, the compliment means a lot. I’m in a somewhat discouraged place writing-wise these days!)
