someone tell me to stop this gay bullshit

a love poem #escapril

April 8, 2019



when the rain starts, i fall in love with you.
and the moon, and the black, and andromeda in a line 
i have never loved the stars so boldly.

into boiling water, steep tea 
bitter like rain, the curve of of your lips
is a dream i have every night.

you talk of astraea and the power of bare feet.
and if love is gentle, i know that my fingers would run
fallingwater through your hair. if love is filling

then you fit perfectly between my ribs,
color in that empty space with breakfast 
and a strong chamomile and the taste

of your fleeting touch, this is not a love
that i understand, if love can be understood at all.
this is a love that the daybreak laughs at 

but last night, i swear,
the stars shined for you on my mind
and i suppose the strength of a night sky

is all that matters. 
for escapril day 8 a love poem
