wait                             


hold
on

I’m
not
supposed  
to
write
             a        c              r                  o                   s             s
the page
like this.


forget me.

can you?

it
isn’t hard from
what I’ve been told; I know
how much you hate
being called,
"Dear," but
my words
are all
exhausted now.


look!

a shooting
star.

let's
take our bikes out
and race it until
we find it
crashing
on our world—
a shower of shooting stars.

who needs the moon?
I’ve
got you.

breathing fire
into a sky of oblivion, I
ignite a match with remorse,
how cliché.

butterflies fill the disposition
of your smile, innocence
rekindled by
the rape of loved radiance,
burning them all with the hurt
of my words, the flame blue and orange
with calm and anger.

you'll thank me
someday and you know it

I've always been terrible
at being okay--
writing letters moreso.

but darling,
wait
for me.


I promise I'll be there.
I'm just as                      s
                         c
                                           a
                             t                          t
                                     e              r           
                                 e             d
                                         as the words on this page.
but I promise to string myself together like
the words
hurled at you
with enough remorse
to salt
the Caspian
over.
                                             
and I
promise, that I will
never let you see
the ground I walk
(fall)
on.
             

and I
promise that for as
long as I am
hopeful, I will

stay.


I promise
that when I am not
lit up and
smiling till it
crinkles my
eyes anymore, I'll
struggle to find
it all
over again.

I promise
that I will never
forget you—
even with Lacuna
at my mindstep,
asking,
luring

always.

I promise to think of you
every day and to
find another dimple on
you
to stare at
in the limbo my being
has succumbed
into                                                                                          
but


between
you and me
the last promise won't
ever
be that hard.
i was going to apologize for a few things--
the length
cliches
run-onness
absolute lack of finesse

but then i realized that i wrote this two years ago for steven
as wedding vows and i mean them even more than i did back then

so i have nothing to apologize for

This really is beautiful. I suppose it is a little run-on, but it gives a breathless feeling that adds to the sweetness of this piece...if that makes sense. :)
