Work on it when you want to keep it.
Keep it warm in times of darkness
Water it in times of drought
Generate love. Everyday.
Shine light on it in the dark.
Pull it closer when it wants to run, […]
twist your tongue in a way that got you in trouble in elementary school.
flick the swear word off the curve of your mouth in a way that would make your grandmother cringe.
curse. curse. curse.
and curse some […]
shelter me. build a canvas of comfort over my heart and hold me there.
hold me in the warmth of the two by fours of your strength.
wipe the tears from my eyes as they fall towards your umbrella.
I want to play a game with you.
Lay out the pieces and collect the dice
this game is not for the nice.
or for the hopeful.
There are murders surround your heart
waiting to choke the pulse out of it.
