Finding Fire For You

I love you

too much for myself.

It’s cracking my lips

and spilling over the rims of my eyes –

and yet I feel 

all those crimson stains in my skull

-the deep, irrevocable red that always lurked

in places of me I refused to look at-

growing –

burning, burning, burning

in the mud.

I’ll cup my hands around

and bring it to you.

Dirtied and dilapidated as it is

with fear and vicious traditions,

it will always be your personal fistful of fire.

It’s searing me slowly into liquid,

melting into the dream I want to be for you.

I’m coming, reaching out with sparks flying.

I love you

too much for myself

and I haven’t caught up yet.

All I’m asking you to do is wait.
