Light

I found a light in your smile 
I know it’s been a while since we talked
But I have not forgotten
Silver linings that you made for me
And all the cells you saved for me
At a time I was determined 
To occupy less space and breathe 
So lightly no one heard me
You made me feel deserving of
Happiness, acceptance, love
The way you fell in love with life 
Thanks for your eternal light.

Distraction 

One day I started to question your love –
That you could put me above
All the distractions of a city
Pretty silly how quickly doubt makes things
So sticky
But I find your love too risky
And I just don’t have it in me
To love without my limits
And you argue,
“That’s what love is!”
But how am I to give this
All with the distraction in your kisses
And the briskness in our mornings
And the bridges you won’t cross for me
How can I give all to you
If you’ll never get lost in me?
