i wonder if you would
change your mind
(change yourself,
find it in your
heart
to feel a little something
for me)
if you saw the words
you've pulled from
my mouth;

uncovered by your lips,
i find poems under my hands.

i write strophes and lines
imprinted on your skin
when i move my fingers away.

i have so much to
show you,
i could give you so much
to feel,
but you slink like a
nightcrawler from light
to a comfortable recession,
and there,
you stay.

one day,
we will talk again
and no stammered heart
will beat like birds
if our hands touch;
one day,
you will realise
that sooner than you have,
you could have
shared your self
with someone else
and been safe-


you would have been
safe
with me.

This is a poem absolutely brimming with regret, beautifully balanced.

This sequence in particular ... such a wonderful way to sum up that awkwardness and tension.

one day,
we will talk again
and no stammered heart
will beat like birds
if our hands touch;


I find myself asking, why the Eastern sun?

oh, thank you so much!
well, i say eastern because i was like, he's sunny, and because i'm a weirdo who has a fascination with skin, i know i've written about it a bunch before, but he's cambodian so that's quite east from me. wow i sound weird i'm sorry

Not at all! It was such a striking image, and I wondered if there was a connection with Asia, but didn't want to pre-empt you.
