This is you.
Your touch, fingers like wind through my hair.
A curling smile, eyes as deep as hope
Offer a trail
Into a heart divided by love and desertion;
Does the coming hurt more than the leaving?
Is one uncertain and the other fulfilled?
I own what of this is mine
That while this world darkens
What blazes is your soul.
