Blind | poem

I give you my love
In rubies, gold,
Tea cups and
Wire wrapped jewels.
But you don’t see.


When you are a fish in mud,
I catch you
And sing:
You’re beautiful,
Enchanting, magical!
You are everything.
But you don’t hear.


I caress you, I cradle you. I sprinkle
You with gold dust, blow roses
Into your blood.
I kiss you and kiss you and kiss—
But you don’t feel.


I crumple your shoulders, pull you
Into me like wind through
Trees, but you don’t move.
You stare at me through
A mirror, hissing,
I love you! Can’t you
See?
