I have had love for you like rain
like a violent rain,
once it even ruptured my insides;
that was before it poured
I have had love for you for years
it is a painful kind that curves in and out
sometimes I cant see it but I can touch it with
It takes half of it to be twisted
half of it to be thrown around,
whipped about like a taut rope
that’s only really breaking strands as a form of movement.
Love like rain and ropes, my love:
this is how we love.
the things that end our lives make them whole,
like loving someone ‘till your swinging,
bound by wind, jumping ropes that emit
little stringed shards;
this is what my body does when I’m
dying for something that loves me so much
I fall apart.
