 i.    oh darling boy 

You are all softness, all caress and winks and shared grins,
And I am all softness, all stillness and snowflakes and flushed cheeks.

But you are also sharpness, all whiteness and thunder and unawaiting silence,
And I am also sharpness, all tempest and teeth and strangled screams.

ii.   are ladybugs more worth your gaze than i?

You are all soundless, all effortless and darlings and fluttered waves,
And I am all soundless, all breathless and butterflies and skirting glances

But you are also loudness, all clueless and shipwreck and shouting eye-contact,
And I am also loudness, all overprocess and panic and avoidant poison.

iii.   oh darling boy 

You are all sweetness, all looseness and uplift and sugared smiles,
And I am all sweetness, all closeness and sunscreen and citrus laughter.

But you are also bitterness, all brokenness and crossfire and recoiled aftertaste.
And I am also bitterness, all crookedness and casualty and shackled tongue.

 iv.    and this unrequited everything is so very familiar.

    I'm astounded by your talent and heartbroken by the date of this piece, because it means you post rarely. But some of the best things are rare and fleeting.
